Two Juicy Recipes: Beautiful Beet & Ginger Zinger


I recently treated myself to a juicer which I'm very excited about because it means I can have my all-time favourite carrot, apple and ginger juice whenever I want! I know there's a lot of controversy around juicing with one group of people arguing that it removes all the goodness and fibre from the fruit and veg, is full of sugar that will rot your teeth and is generally pointless, and the other group claiming that it cures all illnesses and is excellent for getting heaps of nutrients into your body in a short space of time. All I know is that I love freshly pressed juice and I think it's a fab addition to a balanced diet - if you enjoy something that is essentially just fruit and vegetables then I don't see what's wrong with having it, whether it's occasionally or on a daily basis! As well as the carrot, apple and ginger juice I've also made a beetroot, strawberry and apple flavour, which is the most gorgeous shade of pink and tastes absolutely divine!

  1. This looks fab! I realise this is a stupid question, but where do you get your jars from?

    1. Thank you so much :) that's not a stupid question at all! I get mine from Amazon - just search '500ml preserving jar' and it's the top one (the Kitchen Craft one) xxx

  2. Is it necessary to core the apples before juicing? x
