Carrot is regarded as the best core vegetable in juice recipes because of it's high nutrient content. Vitamins such as B, C, D, E, K and beta-carotene are present and help to stimulate the adrenal glands, which encourages fat to be burned. Beetroot gives a lovely sweetness without being sickening, with cucumbers and spinach working to naturally flush the system and give you fibre to keep you fuller for longer.

Both are naturally sweet and taste great in juices, and the addition of sweet potato makes this pink treat a creamy delight.

Go Go Ginger

  • Thumb-size piece of ginger
  • 1 Pear
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 2 stalks of Kale

Ginger really is a powerhouse when it comes to weight loss. Ginger increases metabolism, stimulates circulation and excretion of toxins from the body. Ginger helps in expanding the blood vessels which increases your body heat. This makes your body burn more fat quickly. As an added bonus ginger helps lower cholesterol by significantly reducing serum and hepatic cholesterol levels! Pears have a slight laxative affect on the body, meaning they will aid in digestion and help to flush out the body. Kale is packed full of super nutrients and enzymes meaning it gives your body an incredible nutrient kick. A lot of the time our body registers a lack of nutrients as hunger and thus we feel hungry when really it is our body crying out for nutrition. Help your body to suppress "cravings" with this nutrient-packed juice!
