Juices & Smoothies

ORANGE, PINEAPPLE & TURMERIC IMMUNITY JUICE

I have a lovely fresh, vibrant juice recipe for you guys, PERFECT for when you are feeling a bit “blergh” in need of a vitamin pick me up, or if you just fancy a fresh fruity drink in the garden with your feet up…. No-one’s judging… 😉

This has got to be one of my favourite flavour combinations, fresh oranges, a tangy tropical vibe from the pineapple, a hint of spicy ginger, a sneaky bit of turmeric and a pinch of baobab powder. All the ingredients are blended or juiced to make this vibrant, immune boosting drink.

I love to use seasonal produce where possible as the flavours are just so much better when in season, I have tried this juice with blood oranges instead of normal oranges, and it gives the juice a lovely deep red-orange colour.

Don’t have a juicer?? Or just don’t fancy washing up all those fiddly juicer parts? No Problem!

All you’ll need is a high speed/powerful blender like a nutribullet or vitamix and then strain the juice through a nutmilk bag. – That is the one I personally own and use and can recommend. It’s inexpensive, reusable and great for making your own nut milks and juices at home.

I used to get put off by juicing as it seemed so much effort, and clean up afterwards. But some juicers you can buy nowadays you don’t even have to peel the fruit! I’d recommend doing some research into juicers if you want to get one. In my opinion The juice Kings are Joe Cross – His films are amazing – thats what got me into juicing after seeing how powerful healers fruits and veggies can be, and of course Jason Vale.

Juicing takes a little longer than just blitzing up a smoothie but it’s so so worth it. Fresh homemade juices beat shop bought every. damn. time.

If using a juicer, chuck all the ingredients through the machine, I usually push the ginger and turmeric through with the orange or pineapple, as this stops it getting stuck / you get the most out of the root as possible.

Notes

  • *(Fresh preferably – tinned in juice can be used)
  • You may need to do it in batches so you don’t make a mess. You will be left with the pulp BUT
  • Don’t throw the pulp away! Save it and re-use it in a smoothie, soup or fragrant stew. You could also freeze it in ice cube trays to use at a later date.
  • If you choose to not strain the juice to retain the juice pulp/bits for fibre it will separate slightly in the fridge, so just shake lightly before pouring.
