HOW TO MAKE ORANGE CARROT AND GINGER JUICE

Place the items into the feed and start the juicer and press the fruit down with the pusher. Re-load the feed when it is empty and continue until all the fruit is done.
Stir the juice in the jug and pour 8 fluid ounces (1 cup) into a glass. Enjoy!
HOW TO STORE AND MAKE AHEAD
This recipe makes about 5 servings, you can leave the juice in the jug and put it in the fridge for later that day. The juice will separate so be sure to give a stir when you fancy your next glass.
It is best to drink the juice within 12-24 hours one day of making as the nutritional value will decrease over time, if the juice goes brown then it’s time to throw that away and make a fresh batch.
If you make a lot of juice you can always pour it into a plastic container and store it in the freezer. If you do this then fill the bottle almost up to the top so that the liquid has room to expand. Try not to leave it in the freezer too long as the nutritional value of the drink will decrease over time.
