Have you ever fancied learning a quick and easy way to pack in lots of vitamins and minerals to your lifestyle in one easy step? Then look no further than Jo-Anne’s delicious and supremely healthy Get Up and Go Juice.
Juicing has become extremely popular in the past few years due to the benefits of taking in raw nutrients, such as the protein, Vitamin E and iron in broccoli, which can be denatured in the cooking process.
2 apples (a sweet variety works best)
1 raw beetroot
¼ of a cucumber
2 florets of broccoli
¼ wedge of watermelon
Handful of grapes
Ice to serve
- Place all of the ingredients into your favourite juicer
- Pour over a glass of ice and enjoy the fruits of the machine’s labour!
As the name would suggest, this drink is a perfect light breakfast in warm weather as it is so refreshing and easy to make in advance. Alternatively it would also make a fantastic accompaniment to lunch, or healthy mid-afternoon snack.
Try freezing the juice into ice cubes if you’re bringing it with you on the go, it will stay deliciously icy as it melts, almost like a sorbet.

“I started my cooking career at 12 years old when I made my uncle’s 50th birthday cake, and I cried when he cut into it. I have been cooking, baking and making birthday cakes for people ever since. I developed my skills working at the St Ermin’s Hotel in London in the pastry kitchen with an eccentric French pastry chef who taught me well and started my kitchen life.
“I’ve been at QVC for eight and a half years, I started in a tiny kitchen that was the size of a ‘Borrower’ kitchen compared to what we have now.
“I love cooking because food, especially cake, makes people smile. It has the ability to bring back happy memories. In my mind not much else other than food and the smells associated with it can do that.”
