Beaming Orange Juice Recipe

I made this juice last night and every time I look at the colour of it, it makes me smile. Or I should say it made me smile, I just finished it and it was delicious. 😉

Beaming Orange Juice (makes 2x 500ml juices)

  • 1 lemon (peeled)
  • 2 inches of ginger (skin left on)
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 4 apples of choice (I used Gala)
  • 4 large carrots

The colour of this juice is insane and it’s chock full of antioxidants. The vibrant colour comes from Beta Carotene, which is a carotenoid responsible for giving fruits and vegetables their orange pigment. Beta Carotene is a precursor to Vitamin A which helps with vision (my Mom always told me to “eat your carrots to see in the dark”), skin, immunity against toxins, colds and flus, and it also helps to slow the again process. Delicious and Nutritious!

Daily Affirmation: “I believe in myself.”

  1. That juice looks beautiful! I made a similar juice for my kids this morning – minus the bell pepper. I’ll have to add that next time. I got a juicer for Christmas and I love it. 🙂

  2. What a great gift uberdish! My fiance and I bought one last Christmas and we LOVE it. I tend to go through phases of either non-stop juicing or non-stop smoothies. I’m on the smoothie train right now but am starting to miss juicing. Let me know what you think of the bell pepper – it add a bit of kick! My most creative juices come at the end of the week when I’m trying to use up extra produce.
