Sweet Earthy Juice

Posted by on Sunday, 4 March, 2012

This simple and easy juicing recipe only has 4 veggies but it sure packs a punch for vitamins and minerals.

1 Beet ( or 2 if small )
4 Organic Carrots
4 Organic Celery Stalks
1 Organic Yellow Pepper

Slice up and juice away! While the carrots and pepper add sweetness to this juice the celery and beets certainly counteract that in the after taste. This juice is still pretty good, and it gives my body the nutrients it needs to keep me going.

I would use all of the pepper but my mangy mutt loooooves them so much that I simply must share.

Here we go:

4 organic carrots

I’m not usually the biggest fan of beets, but lately I’ve been diggin’ on ’em a bit more. Maybe I’m getting used to their unique earthy flavor, or the other veggies in my juice are overpowering with their own flavors. Who knows, but try these other beet juice recipes — click here, here and here.
