Enlivening Orange, Ginger and Mint Juice

Welcome back! After a long hiatus I am ready to return to blogging again. Life had gotten really hectic with home renovations and my being unwell for some time, so I haven’t been able to dedicate the time to this.  I’ve made a bunch of changes to my life to simplify things now (which includes dedicated rest days with no plans and no projects/jobs) and I am feeling healthier and more relaxed. In addition to that, I have time again!  So without further ado…..

This juice is perfect for a Saturday afternoon.  It is so simple – just three ingredients – and it tastes zingy and delicious.  Interestingly it also tastes quite creamy, despite not having any ingredients in it which would usually be used to make a “creamy” finish.  One of the many things I love about my nutrininja is how it can use the whole fruit and make it into something great.  For this, I don’t even need to take the seeds out of the oranges – simply chop it up, take off the skin and you are good to go! It has heaps of fibre and goodness, including vitamin C, folate and calcium.

Also I figured out how to put text on my photos using Gimp, which makes me happy.
