I love this juice and try to have one rather than having a second cup of coffee in the mornings! It not only tastes fab but gives you a real lift too! And if you have juicer it's super easy and cheap to make. Ginger and turmeric have anti-inflammatory properties and because they are slightly spicy too, this juice really wakes you up!
What you need: 6 carrots, 1 inch of ginger, 1 inch of turmeric root, an orange (peeled)
What you do: shove all of the above into a juicer and garnish with a basil leaf. ENJOY!
If you want it a bit spicier, add more ginger. If you like it a bit sweeter, add more orange. If you don't have a juicer then why not ask for one for Christmas? My parents in law gave me one last year and I absolutely love it! John Lewis have a good selection. Just make sure you get one that is easy to wash up as some of them have a zillion parts that need to be taken apart and washed each time.
nb. Tumeric root can be quite difficult to get hold of - try your local farm shop. If you are local to me in Great Missenden then go Peterley Farm as they sell it, as well as lots of other wonderful things, love that shop!
