Carrot Orange Juice

This mocktail is a very wholesome drink that gives an instant feeling of well being. The carrot orange juice looks like you caught the sun in a glass. It is a simple combination of natural ingredients that are very healthy.

Packed full with nutrients and flavour, it is a great way to start your day, pair with your lunch for a boost of energy for the rest of the day or with supper to replenish lost nutrients. It is excellent when taken with your snacks like puff puff, hush poppy, beetroot cake, egg roll, fish roll etc.

You can push up the flavour with the addition of mint, ginger or pineapple. Honey can also be replaced with sugar.

Carrot juice mixed with orange juice is sweet and natural but we still need to be careful about the quantity consumed.
