Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 6 … Carrot, Orange and Cacao Juice.

Ok folks, it’s day 6 of #LHB_Juice_January and we’re kicking the day off with a “Chocolate Orange” Juice … Usually I get a proper Terry’s Chocolate Orange at Christmas so you can imagine my disappointment to find that not only did I not get one of those amazing pieces of chocolate heaven, but in fact, I got a Gingerbread shower gel in it’s place. I can neither eat said shower gel (it says so on the bottle), nor use it for intended purpose (as I have skin that kicks off something rotten with just about everything – darn Adult Acne *sigh*). So I figured I would try and at least get a version that would fit in with my Juice Challenge.

Why Cacao you ask? Well…

Raw Cacao is a great source of various Vitamins (particularly the B-Vitamins, C and E), Minerals (especially Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Manganese), Monounsaturated Fats and has an amazing amount Polyphenols (Antioxidants) with which to kick free-radical butt!

But most of all, I am a chocoholic with a MAJOR sweet tooth.

Ingredients (Makes 1): 

1 Orange

3 Carrots

1.5 tsp Raw Cacao Powder (obviously how much you add is a personal choice!)

Just peel the carrots and orange, slice it all up then bob in the juicer with the Cacao Powder (for this one I’m using a Nutribullet so I also added 200ml water)! Once blitzed chuck some on the Cacao Nibs or dark chocolate shavings on the top!
