Mid-winter pick me up juice


We are halfway through the winter and our immune system has been working hard.  After the festive season also we can feel a little down: spring still feels a way off.  What we need is a pick me up.  This juice has oranges and apples for vitamin C, an antioxidant which not only protects your cells from free radical damage but they also promote antibody production to see off those 'invaders' (microbes) that cause illness.  

Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, the precursor to vitamin A, which keeps your mucus membranes healthy as a first line of defense and also boosts your white cell production.  
The ginger adds a little warmth and the avocado adds creaminess as well as some 'good' oils.

So, let's get juicing

For 2 glasses you will need 

1 medium orange
1 large eating apple 
1 medium carrot
2 cm piece ginger, peeled
1 small avocado
