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!

What do you get when you combine dates with maca…? Caramel! But not the sickly kind - the earthy, malty, bear hug kind, that feels like you’ve just put on a big woollen jumper. These delicious mugs of goodness are my new favourite beverage and, now that we’re nearing mid-winter, they’re totally needed too.
Two words. Burger Rings. But in a kale chip! The smoky BBQ tomato coating on these is everything you loved about those orange little rings, without the nasties, and a host of health benefits too.
