Fresh Juice Recipe: Ginger/Carrot/OJ Splash

Re-hydrate this summer with a delicious and nutrient-rich juice!

Basking in the summer sun for a moderate amount of time not only raises your Vitamin D levels, but causes an unquenchable thirst for hydrating replenishment. What do you reach for to drink, though?

If you’re like most Americans, Gatorade, beer, or soda is likely on stock; however such options are full of processed sugars, artificial sweeteners, and have a low pH. While they may be tasty at first sip, the ingredients are linked with degenerative health issues and further dehydrate the body – the opposite of what one needs during the summer heat.

Besides water, what should one drink then? How about a nourishing and hydrating fresh-pressed juice! Vibrantly orange and full of antioxidants, this drink is perfect for all people, but is especially refreshing for those who need to cool off from the heat.

Plus – it’s incredibly easy to make and tastes great!
