Seasonal Sunday: A Spicy Winter Juice

Happy Seasonal Sunday Zesters! Today I was inspired by some farm fresh produce that was “seasonal.” Ever wonder what the heck can be found in the winter season? Here is a list of awesome winter produce, and on this snazzy list I was inspired to make this spicy winter juice! Who knew Meyer lemons are to be at their best in winter & spring? Carrots Oranges and Clementines (sweeter smaller oranges) are also wonderful winter produce! Now I must warn you, if you’re a gringo like me and can’t handle tooooo much spice then be sure to go light on the ginger 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1″ of ginger root or 1/2″ for less spicy
  • 1 meyer lemon peeled
  • 1 orange peeled
  • 2 carrots

(this made one serving)

  • Anti-Inflammatory Effects
  • Ginger Induces Cell Death in Ovarian Cancer Cells
  •  Protection against Colorectal Cancer
  • Immune Boosting Action

SO now you can feel good about drinking your tasty drink too! Score!
