Apple Beet Juice
Ever since I mistook canned beets for canned cranberry sauce as a kid (don’t laugh, someone knows what I am talking about), I never thought I would want to see beets again. Well, all that has changed. Now, raw beets are a regular part of my diet. Beets are rich in vitamins and minerals such as Manganese, Potassium, Vitamin C, Tryptophan, Iron and are one of richest sources of Folate. The phytonutrients in beets have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and support detoxification. The impact of these nutrients is maximized when eaten raw or juiced. Beets also give this juice a beautiful color. When combined with apples, this juice makes a great morning pick me up. You can feel the energy of this one. Enjoy!
3 Organic apples (cored)
½ Organic beet root (peeled and leaves removed)
2 Stalks celery (optional)
- Remove the core of all apples.
- Remove beet leaves and peel outer skin of the beet (especially if not organic).
- Cut the beet in half, height-wise and prep apple to fit the juicer chute.
Off The Grid Health Recommends:
- Using Braeburn apple or tarter, fresh beet juice can be very sweet.
- Using organic produce for this recipe where possible.
- Adding the juice of a half a lime to take off the ‘earthy’ edge of the beet (optional).
- Adding the juice of two stalks of celery.
- Adding 2-3 cups of seedless watermelon!
