Ingredients:

750g carrots, trimmed and chopped

1 inch ginger, peeled

2 apples, chopped roughly

2 pear, chopped roughly

2 oranges

Directions:

Peel the oranges, but leave as much of the white ‘pith’ as possible.

You can use the carrot pulp to make raw carrot cake or add to your porridge with some raisins, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg for ‘carrot cake’ style porridge. It’s delicious!

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:

4 handfuls spinach

1 banana, sliced

1 pear, chopped

2 tsps chia seeds

2 tsps ground flax seed

2 tsps hemp seeds (dehulled or ground whole ones)

Water

Directions:

Feel free to experiment with different green vegetables, such as kale. You can also try different fruit combinations. The banana helps to thicken it up and provide sweetness.
