We usually start off our mornings with a smoothie packed full of all sorts of nutritious ingredients. This carrot smoothie with ginger & orange ticks off one of the ten. Only another nine to go then. Juicing could be a good way of adding more fruit and veg to our diet. I’ve stayed clear of juicers, however, as I’ve heard they can be a bit of a faff to clean. But, cue fanfare, this may be a thing of the past with the all singing, all dancing self-cleaning Juisir.
