This carrot, apple and orange fruit protein smoothie is literally chockablock with the good stuff.

The high vitamin C content in carrot juice provides an immune system boost, making you less susceptible to winter colds.

Ginger is the ultimate superfood, boasting anti-inflammatory properties, the ability to fight infections and protect against ageing (it's seriously awesome for your skin!)

Studies have revealed that apple juice protects against skin, breast and colon cancer.
