I have recently acquired a juicer and have become quite the experimenter in the kitchen!
You learn quite quickly (and with a lot of mess) what fruits and veggies are juiced well and what flavor combinations go together.
I have discovered the wonderfully spicy, earthy addition of ginger really gives my metabolism a kick start in the morning and the fresh, sharp punch from fresh mint leaves add liveliness and zing to any juice I am making!

My favourite juice concoction of late is carrot, apple, ginger and orange juice:

I have also experimented with beetroot which has a really earthy, root flavour and unusual texture which reminds me of any root vegetable. Not one for the faint hearted, you must be able to swallow that distinct raw root vegetable taste and handle the ultra deep pink colour your juice will turn!

This juice below is beetroot, orange, apple and ginger:

I love the fact that you can pretty much put anything into that blender (not your finger) and create a fresh and healthy mix of fruits and vegetables.

What’s your favourite juice mix?

  1. YUMMMM!! I love both of those juices! I also love Beetroot, Carrot, Apple, Lemon & Ginger. Maybe with a dash of Cayenne if I'm feeling brave. :-)
