Here’s a quick juice recipe that I really enjoyed earlier this week.
I don’t love beets yet. Still need to keep eating them until I do. My neighbor gave me some of his famous beets–4 large ones with tons of greens attached. I saved the beets for another use, plus they keep much longer than the greens. The greens are soooo healthy and you should never, never throw them away. Deal?
This is a very sweet juice from all of the fruit. If you don’t want it as sweet, you can use green apples or thin it with a little water. It’s quite refreshing chilled. I add ice to the collection pitcher of my juicer and the lid strains it out.
Beet Green, Carrot, Apple, Orange Juice
5 peeled carrots
1 bunch beet greens (about 5-6 large), can also use chard
2 small oranges, peeled and and cut into half through the equator, seeds removed
2 apples, cut into quarters, cores removed
Put the greens and fruit through a juicer according to manufacturer directions.
Makes about 20 oz. or enough for two juices. Drink within a few hours for best health benefits.
