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.
