Beet Carrot Tomato Cucumber and Pepper Juice

Posted by on Saturday, 11 February, 2012

Here is a quick and simple juicing recipe that’s a little on the sweet side. So if you’re not a fan of beets like me, then I would for sure try this one out.

2 Beets
4 Medium sized Carrots
1 Cucumber
2 Tomatoes
1/2 Orange Pepper

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

4 Carrots
1/2 Broccoli stalk
1 Cucumber
1 Tomato
Ginger nubin’
Just a squeeze or 2 of lime

Toss into your juicer and drink.  Keep in mind, this makes 2 juices.  I like to share 🙂 So if it’s just you , then save half for later or the next day (although I’ve read in a couple places that they say juices … Read the rest
