I’ve drunk many different juices in the past year. Some good, some bad. Some amazing, some awful. But none as tasty as this one, which I could happily live on for the rest of my life. Seriously.
This sweet, zesty, refreshing natural juice is best enjoyed on a sunny day in beautiful surroundings (my favourite “beautiful surroundings” are my garden, which is why I take so many of my food photos out there these days. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so you may not think my garden is all that beautiful… but it’s my favourite place in the world!)
So, to make this, you need a juicer, of course – plus the following ingredients:
- 2 oranges
- 2 apples (I used Golden Delicious today, but I’ve previously made this with Gala apples which are gorgeous juiced)
- 1 stick of celery
- 3 medium to large carrots
Use a potato peeler to peel the oranges. You want to leave as much pith on as possible. It doesn’t matter if a bit of the outer peel remains, just don’t overdo it or the juice will be too zesty.
Juice the oranges on your juicer’s slow speed.
Then juice the apples, celery and carrots on high speed.
Stir well and serve in a pint glass (or if you’re feeling generous, split it with a friend).
As for the name… inspired by this:
