We are delighted to announce that best-selling health and nutrition author Jason Vale, aka the Juice Master, is set to speak at The Best You Exhibition. In the first of a series of articles, he shares his recipe of the month
Hot ‘n’ Reddy:
1 raw beetroot
1/4 pink grapefruit (peeled)
1 large orange (peeled)
1 small handful strawberries
1/2 red chilli (seeds removed)
1 small handful ice
Peel the grapefruit and the orange, removing the skin but leaving the pith on.
Remove the seeds from the chilli.
If you are using a fast (centrifugal) juicer, first juice the orange. Then with the machine off, place the pear into the chute. Pack the strawberries, chilli and grapefruit in behind and pop the beetroot on top. Turn the juicer on and push everything through.
If you are using a slow (masticating/cold press) juicer you can simply push everything through slowly.
Once all is juiced, simply pour over ice and enjoy!
So what is in this baby?
Combining the snap of citrus with the coolness of the beetroot and pear; offset against the sumptuous sweetness of strawberries and hot-headed chilli creates the Hot + Reddy infusion, a true taste sensation! The humble little raspberry contain a very rich source of vitamin C and dietary fibre; alongside a moderate amount of vitamin K, which is essential in building strong bones. Raspberries also contain a large quantity of manganese, which helps with the absorption of calcium, regulation of blood sugar levels and metabolism.
