Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 4 … Carrot, Cucumber and Pink Lady Apple Juice

Ok folks, it’s day 4 of #LHB_Juice_January and my first day back at work! Can we say Monday Blues much? I’ve been huffing about this day since I woke up Sunday morning … I’m just not ready to sit back at my desk yet! I’m not ready to be awake before 10am! I’m just not ready for it all.

I haven’t even had time to charge up my bullpoop detector!

So we’re kicking the day off with a “Bit of Blusher” Juice …

Why Pink Lady Apples you ask? Well…

According to Pink Lady® one apple is rich in fibre, contains 10% carbohydrates, provides 54Kcal/100gr and works as an appetite suppressant (which given my obsession with left over mince pies at the moment, I totally need this!) … They are also a great source of Vitamin C!

I’m going to say right now that this is not the sexiest looking of drinks (and it is a bit of an acquired taste)… So I totally get it if you take one look at it and go “oh hell no”. But for those feeling brave:

Ingredients (makes 1): 

4 Carrots (peeled)

1/3 Cucumber

1 Pink Lady Apple (cored)

Slice everything up then bob in the juicer (for this one I’m using an Optimum 400)!
