The Flu Fighter

Vitamin C is the best known and most readily available flu and cold fighter.

All the ingredients for this juice are packed with vitamin C; ginger adds a warming effect to our bodies and acts as an anti-inflammatory whilst beetroot provides a source of calcium which is essential in the absorption of vitamin C.

This juice recipe makes about 1 litre. I generally store in the fridge for up to 4 days and enjoy each morning with breakfast!

A hand-held blender works perfectly instead of a juicer or stand blender, just requires a little more work!


  • 2 small apples
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 medium sized pre-cooked beetroot
  • 2 inch fresh ginger
  • 250ml water
  1. Cube the beetroot and de-cored apples and place in a blender or large measuring jug.
  2. Top and tail the carrot and coarsely grate into the jug.
  3. Add in the finely chopped peeled ginger.
  4. Squeeze in the lemon juice, add the water and blend until smooth.
  5. If the mixture is still lumpy, simply add in more water.
