It's getting cooler here in the southern hemisphere, and the flu bugs are definitely out and about, so the more immune-boosting foods you can get the better. This juice is a bit easier on the ingredient list than my full blown Flu Shot, but nonetheless is still great for your immune system and pretty darn delicious to boot. Oranges, carrots and gubinge are all really high in vitamin C, with Gubinge being the real powerhouse here - it has 60 times the vitamin C of an orange!

1. Cut up your veges and fruit into small pieces/sticks.
2. Feed the orange, ginger and finally the carrots into your slow juicer, then add the water to wash the remaining juice out.
3. Stir through the gubinge powder after juicing.
4. Add some ice and drink straight away, or put half into a jar, seal the lid and save in the fridge til your other half gets home (or you get thirsty again).
If you're jarring half for later, try to use the smallest jar that fits so there's not much air between the juice and the lid. That way you'll limit the amount of oxidation that takes place.
Here's to drinking away that pending winter cold!

These deliciously dark and mysterious tarts are just a little bit special, with a secret ingredient. Modestly sweet, with an earthy, nutty flavour- a lovely change from the usual fruity/chocolate affairs - give them a go, and fall in love!
These light and fruity muffins use one of my favourite fruits – feijoas! If you’re a feijoa fan you’ll love these (and if not, come to NZ to try them). Best of all, they have no added sugar – just the natural sweetness of feijoas, coconut, dates, and vanilla.
