Pumpkin's aren't just for Halloween and pumpkin pie! There is a wealth of health benefits that we can acquire from a pumpkin which we should seek to utilize whilst the vegetable is in season. Using seasonal fruit and vegetables in our juice recipes can help us obtain a more widespread balance of nutrients. Pumpkin contains vitamins A and C which help to boost the immune system.
Some people liken pumpkin juice to a 'watered down' carrot juice. It is slightly thinner and also more delicate in flavour than carrot juice. For this reason we have used the pumpkin as a base in this recipe and then given the taste a lift and slight kick with the addition of orange and ginger.
Remove sections of pumpkin and scrape off any seeds. Pumpkin seeds are a well known health food. Remove the pumpkins skin and then feed your pumpkin flesh through the juicer. Remove the orange skins and peel the ginger skin off. Juice the ginger followed by the oranges.
