I like the colour of beets. I enjoy a good beet pun. I do not like that they taste like sweet dirt, especially when cooked. But I think it’s good to eat a nice variety of veggies, so every now and then I throw a beet into my diet. Mostly in this juice, where it blends right in!
This is one of my standard juices, mostly because of the affordability of the ingredients (THIS is my other go-to), but also because it’s a lovely mix of warming and refreshing. Sometimes I just juice all the ingredients rather than making it a blended juice, so if you’d rather do than then go for it!
Kicking Carrot Blended Juice
1 Small Beet
1 Small Apple
1 Tsp Chopped Ginger
Dash of Cinnamon (optional)
1. Juice carrots, beet, and peeled lemon.
2. Peel and chop both the apple and ginger. Blend them with juice from step 1 and cinnamon.
Of course, as usual customize the recipe to your taste. Want more beets or ginger? Do it up!
Ps. Don’t Spill this on a beige carpet. It’ a pain to clean up. The things I test for you…
I love your description of beets–"they taste like sweet dirt." lol. I, too, occasionally like to add beets to my diet and this juice recipe looks like it's something I'll have to add to my juicing repertoire.
