5 Orange Coloured Juice Recipes for Health and Happiness

Developing a nutritious diet can be quite the challenge for the blossoming health enthusiast. Obstacles can be hidden around every corner. But worry no longer! Healthy eating does not have to lack the flavour of the past. These are five orange coloured drinks that can inspire a healthy mind alongside a healthy body.

A “Stress Buster” Smoothie

The perfect armour against the winter season, this smoothie packs all the vitamins needed to protect against the snowy weather. While it is important to ensure that there is a healthy amount of fruit and vegetables in your smoothie, it is still vital to supply the body with energy. And, if you don’t have the time to make smoothies of your own, consider signing up for a weekend retreat with Prestige Boot Camp, who’ll make you smoothies and teach you how to stay fit and healthy.

For one glass, you will require:

  • One cup of orange juice
  • One peeled orange (cut into pieces)
  • Two bananas (best frozen for extra creaminess!)
  • ¾ cup of almond milk (or low-fat milk)
  • One Carrot (cut into pieces)
  • One tsp of vanilla extract
  • Crushed ice

Put all these ingredients in a juicer, and you will be greeted with a sweet treat that is guaranteed to leave your taste buds beaming!

Turmeric Orange Lemonade

Known as the ‘master healer’ of drinks, this lemonade provides a healthy twist on the summer beverage. Packed with anti-inflammatory medical properties of Turmeric, this plant encourages digestion. It is the perfect addition to any clean diet.

For one glass, you will require:

  • Four inches of fresh turmeric root
  • Two inches of fresh ginger root
  • Two peeled oranges
  • One peeled lemon
  • Five mini carrots
  • One tbsp of basil

Place all these ingredients, except the basil, into a juicer and mix. Then add the basil when the mixture is liquid and mix again for two minutes.

Carrot and Kale Juice

Feeling ill run down from a long day at work? This drink is the perfect tangy concoction for a boost of energy. Packed with plenty of Vitamin A and C, it is ideal for weight loss.

For one glass, you will require:

  • Two oranges
  • Four carrots
  • Two handfuls of kale
  • Half a lemon
  • One knob of ginger

Begin by slicing the skin from the oranges and lemon before chopping the carrots into small pieces. Then add to your blender!

Mint Tea

Mint Tea doesn’t usually bring an orange drink to mind, but when Dan Nadaeu, Medical Director of the Exeter Hospital, promotes the health benefits of tea (especially green tea) against health diseases like osteoporosis and cancer, it has clearly earned a place on this list.

For one glass of mint tea:

  • A handful of mint
  • Boiling water

Be sure to wash and tear up your mint before leaving it to stew in a teapot between five and ten minutes.

Ginger Mocktail

It can be difficult to stick to a healthy diet when faced with an active social life. However, at 99 calories, it is still possible to enjoy a classic mocktail.

For one glass, you will require:

  • Two-three oz of pomegranate/cranberry juice
  • Three-four oz flavoured water or seltzer
  • One oz of ginger syrup
  • Ice

In a large shaker, add the juice, ice and the ginger syrup. Shake well and then add the seltzer. Your mocktail will then be ready to serve.
