The New Year is in full swing and with it probably the good New Year’s resolutions. Have you also decided to change something in your everyday life this year? Do you have any athletic goals or resolutions related to nutrition? Most of them decide to make their menu a little healthier after the many festive meals. We have therefore created an orange juice-ginger smoothie that you can take as a daily breakfast companion and thus already supplies your body with a large part of the recommended vitamins and minerals. Since January is also a particularly disease-prone month, it is all the more important to support the body with good nutrients.
The ingredients for 2 glasses (200 ml each)
- 100 ml orange juice (100%)
- 1 carrot
- 8 mint leaves
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 cm ginger
- 1 lemon
- 1 handful of ice cubes
- Juice the lemon.
- Peel the carrot and cut into small pieces.
- Put all ingredients together in a blender and blend into a smoothie.
- Garnish with a mint leaf and a slice of orange.
Lately, fruit juices have had a rather negative reputation for being said to contain too much fructose. You shouldn’t see a fruit juice as a thirst quencher, but, like this smoothie, as a healthy vitamin booster for food supplements. A glass of 100% orange juice a day can contribute to a healthy lifestyle due to the high amount of vitamins.
In addition, the smoothie also contains ginger, which is very effective against painful ailments and coughs and runny nose, mint, which helps with respiratory diseases and intestinal complaints, honey, which contains a high amount of vital substances, and lemon and carrots, both of which strengthen the immune system.
