A clementine is a hybrid between a mandarin orange and a sweet orange, and in Norway the citrus fruit is synonymous with Christmas. How about in your country?
Christmas tradition or not, it a great citrus fruit to juice as is makes a lovely sweet juice rich in vitamin C. The trick is to mix it with vegetables to boost itshealth benefits and keep blood sugar in check.
Try my Christmas clementine juice recipe!
- 3- 4 clementines (peeled)
- 2- 3 cm large piece ginger
- 2 carrots
- 1/3 large piece sweet red bell pepper
- 1/2 lime
How to: Peel the clementines (we should not juice this fruit with its skin due to the bitterness), wash the rest of the ingredients and cut into pieces that fit your juicer. Keep the skin on the rest of the ingredients as a lot of the nutrients are just beneath the skin.
Juicy goodness: Vitmain C, gingerols, vitamin A, betacaroten, magnesium.
