It’s no secret that freshly squeezed juice easily kicks bottled juice in the butt.

Fresh is brimming with sparkly vitamins.  Bottled is often filled with sugar and pasteurised to death.

So ramp up your juicer, baby, and give this a whirl!


It’s a zinger alright!  This one’s for you if:

:: You want to ditch the caffeine and still start the day off with a buzz
:: You want to know what it’s like to drink a glass full of sunshine
:: You want to start your day out on the right health track and have beautiful energy to burn

Here’s what just one glass will getcha:

Orange – Vitamins C, A, B6, thiamine, folate, calcium, magnesium, potassium, antioxidants.

Lemon – Vitamin C and antioxidants.

Ginger – Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Carrot – Vitamins A and K, B6, C and E, antioxidants, folate, thiamine, niacin, potassium and manganese.


Best of all?  You’ll feel all sparkly and can be that annoying person who smiles at everyone on the train in the mornings.  Or if you want to be more subtle about it, wait until you get to work and then start blinding everyone with your pearly whites.

Take that, Mr Early Morning Grumpy Pants!

    Ohhh, yum. I’m hoping to get a juicer soon (saving the funds as we speak), and this is definitely on the list. Citrus + ginger are my favourites!

      Hi Suzanne, I like to use the smaller carrots, but you can use any size. Larger ones will make more juice and more carrot flavour. 🙂

      haha, yes, you sure could, Kate. Freshly juiced is best, but you can whizz up store-bought carrot juice with 1 orange, half a lemon, and some grated fresh ginger in your blender. Enjoy! xx
