Carrot juice with pineapple, ginger and lemon
Making your own fresh juices is a great way to boost your vitamin and mineral intake. One of the benefits of making an orange coloured juice, is that you can make it a bit in advance. Unlike green juices, these ingredients have a slightly longer shelf life (2-3 days when sealed and refrigerated).
Image how long it takes for a carrot or pineapple to oxidize after being cut. An apple may begin to discolour within minutes, but these orange and yellow ingredients will remain fresh-looking for much longer. The lemon will also assist in the preservation of the juice.
