There is a small nutrition store with a juice bar located near my yoga studio and, every now and then, I stop in after class for a juice or a smoothie. Because I’m a creature of habit, I almost always order the same thing, but I keep noticing on their menu a juice that they call the “Immune Booster”, which contains orange, carrot and ginger. And I keep thinking,“Someday, I’m going to try that one.”
Well,‘someday’ came a couple of weeks ago when I happened to catch the flu!? I didn’t have much of an appetite, but I knew that it was important to hydrate and to consume something nutritious (preferably something with a hefty dose of vitamin C!).
I had all three ingredients on hand and decided to make myself an ‘Immune Booster’ juice. I have this Breville juicer (which I love!) and I make green juice just about every day, but up until then, I had never made anything BUT green juice. Well, this one tasted fantastic! And, the combination of orange, carrot and ginger is, as the name implies, full of immune boosting vitamins and antioxidants.
This recipe makes about 16 ounces of juice, which you can drink all at once, or in 3-4 ounce “shots” throughout the day. Either way, it’s a delicious addition to your diet during the winter flu season. If you’re healthy, it might help you stay that way and if, like me, you come down with something, this juice might alleviate some of the symptoms and shorten the duration of the illness a bit. At the very least, it will taste great and provide necessary hydration.
Sending you healthy vibes,
- 2 navel oranges skin removed
- 2 large carrots washed
- A piece of fresh ginger approx. 2 inches, washed
One at a time, put ingredients into the juicer (on high speed). Voila!
