Freshly pressed juice

Fresh juice is a great way to get the kids to eat more veggies and fruit. I love making this simple juice for myself too, it has lots of health benefits and tastes delicious. Plus you can show the kids how it's made so they know where the delicious orange liquid comes from.

Prep time and juicing around 10 minutes altogether

Here's what you need:
4 large carrots
3 apples
fresh ginger - add as much as you would like, when I make it for myself I add a little bit extra, but as it changes the flavour quite significantly and kids sometimes prefer a less tangy taste, so a teaspoon of ginger would be ok 
fresh turmeric root - one teaspoon of turmeric would work, but you can add a little bit more

Fresh ginger and turmeric are fantastic ingredients to add to a juice. Packed with flavour and health benefits, will boost your immune system and act as an anti-inflammatory.

If you're using organic fruit and veg you don't have to worry about peeling them, just wash properly and cut into smaller parts. If not organic, I would recommend pealing the skin.
Add all the ingredients into a juicer, not all will fit at once, so keep on adding more while the juice is being pressed. Adding few drops of lime or lemon would make it extra fresh.
