It is January and I feel that I would not have fulfilled my duty if I did not include one super-healthy, new-start, loose-weight, change-your-life sort of recipe and here it is. Blood oranges are so pretty and sweet and the colour is amazing. The distinctive dark flesh colour is due to the presence of anthocyanins, an excellent antioxidant which makes these oranges higher in anti-oxidant content than regular ones. Along with the blood-purifying beetroot and carotene packed carrots and a triple high-vitamin-C hit, this delicious juice cannot fail to put you on the right path to a new you!
But why just give up after January. My new years resolution is to do a new seasonal juice every month. Look out for February’s!
Makes one large glass
4 blood oranges
Scrub the beetroot and the carrots. Juice the carrots and the beetroot with a juice extractor. Juice the blood oranges with a citrus press attachment. Mix together well and drink.
Top tip: Keep your fruit and veg in the fridge before hand so that your drink is nicely chilled. The quicker you use it the better it is for you.
