Please excuse the ugly colour of this juice, ha! This just was packed full of oranges (two different types), lemon, kale, cucumber, carrots, nectarines and ginger. I love adding a bit of ginger to juices, it adds so much flavour. I started out juicing the carrots, oranges & nectarines, and it was such a nice, orangey-red colour. The kale, grapes and cucumber turned it this... brown-ish colour. Haha. But it was good! Trust me! Haha.
