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 🙂
- 1″ of ginger root or 1/2″ for less spicy
- 1 meyer lemon peeled
- 1 orange peeled
- 2 carrots
(this made one serving)
Step one: Peel those citrus!! (we don’t want the rind making our juice bitter)
Voila!! Now it’s time to JUICE.
And now it’s time to sip 🙂
Curious on some health benefits of ginger by the way??
Just to name a few…
- Gastrointestinal Relief
- Safe and Effective Relief of Nausea and Vomiting During Pregnancy
- 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!
