It’s Saturday, you’re not at work and you’ve got some time to kill before you hit up Columbia Road. Instead of waiting until the New Year, for a ‘New Year New You’ piece, we’ve decided that today’s the day to start eat healthily. Every Saturday we’ll be featuring healthy and disarmingly appetising recipes from health guru Monique, of Skinny Minny.
As you’re probably feeling a little bleary eyed we thought we’d ease you in with a juice
I used to go into juice bars all the time but they are so damn expensive to buy everyday and so easy to make at home so I’ve vowed to always try and make my own.
My power juice is a twist on the classic carrot, apple & ginger which I used to order every morning. I use more carrot than apple and have added avocado and spinach for added nutrients and goodness, as well as a little mint for freshness. This is the perfect morning pick-me-up to power you through until lunch.
You will need a good juicer to make this – I use a juicing fitting on my Magimix, but there are plenty out there that are great.
I try to use organic where I can
x4 Apples, cored (I used cox)
x10 Carrots, peeled
20g Fresh ginger
50g Fresh spinach
A handful of fresh mint leaves
Blend all ingredients in a juicer. Store in a jug, bottle or flask in the fridge.
