Do you believe in the benefits of juicing but hate the cleanup? Here is the ultimate lazy girl (or boy) solution for fresh morning juices without the fuss: buy fresh squeezed carrot and orange juice at your local grocer or natural health food store the day before. Freeze the carrot juice in an ice cube tray. Have a good night sleep. Wake up and whip up some fresh raw apple, carrot orange and ginger juice in your blender. Add a handful of fresh mint or parsley for a more earthy flavor or a cup of baby spinach to get your glow on. Enjoy with a handful of Hail Merry Grawnola for a complete meal with heart healthy plant protein and fats. This fresh beta-carotene, anti-oxidant rich raw and vegan juice helps cleanse the body of toxins and the abundant plant enzymes keeps the body functioning at optimum capacity. In no time at all you will feel more energized, lighter and better but that doesn’t mean you want to spend your time cleaning juicers. I’m thinking tennis, golf, yoga or zumba!
