I’m usually a green juice girl all the way. But, oh my, this is really good. Fun departure from my usual morning juice. It’s so great to get nutrients from different sources and a rainbow of colors.
So to make Beet Red Juice, place the following organic fruits and vegetables in your juicer:
1 cucumber, chopped in large chunks
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 beet, chopped
1 cup black or red grapes, taken off stem
1 red apple
Pour into a fancy glass and love it.
I know they are good for you, but beets have never been my favorite. I usually find the combination of earthy sweetness to be cloying and something I generally avoid. But I try to be an open minded foodie and thought I would mess around with beets and see if I could come up with something tasty.
You could really use this recipe with just about any root vegetable. Sweet potatoes, carrots and parsnips would all be good. And, I bet you anything, your kids will like this too…mine do.
