Happy earth day everyone !! 🙂
As we celebrate the anniversary of what started out as one of the most important environmental protection movements of our time, when we as a planet decided to save ourselves from the inevitable destruction that lay ahead, if we were to march down the path of reckless destruction of our environment. In the spirit of preservation and replenishment of everything that is wonderful, let us make a resolution to start everyday positively and strive for good health not just for ourselves but our loved ones also. Today, I present to you a wonderful, healthy and amazing way to start your day.
The first ingredient of our recipe is Carrots which is one of nature’s most versatile vegetables. They are a good source of Vitamin A that is synthesized from the beta-carotene present in them. They also contain lots of fiber which is necessary for optimum body function. They are also super tasty and blend well with most of the other types of juices.
The second ingredient is tangelos, a hybrid fruit obtained by mixing tangerines with pomelo a type of grapefruit. They are a very good source of Vitamin C and fiber and play a vital role in strengthening our immune systems. The carrots and tangelos give this drink a bright orange hue like the early sunrise while the ginger and mint add a dash of freshness that perks you up . Apples and coconut water also provide additional sweetness and minerals to the mix making it a wonderful and unique fusion of flavors that will help you start your detox day.

You can either use a juicer for extracting the juice from the carrots, apples and tangelos, blend ginger and mint and add to the juice or blend all the ingredients and use a cheesecloth or sieve to filter out the pulp. You can use the pulp in another creative recipe or could give it back to the earth, use it for feeding a compost heap.
Enjoy your healthy breakfast drink !!! 🙂
