Let’s get juicy, people.
Let’s create a summer wellness juice that’s earthy but sweet and just a little bit bright, that combines powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, carotenoids, vitamins, and minerals. Let’s drop some beets on this so-called life. Let’s make something that tastes damn good and looks like liquid rubies (that’s important)!
Let’s do this.
This fresh juice came together when I was feeling a little guilty about my recent diet–lots of unhealthiness present, to be sure–but I wanted something a little different from my regular, super earthy beet-and-carrot deal. So I used those go-to root veggies as a base (venturing from a green juice, seeing as how we do, no matter how unhealthy we’re noshing otherwise, eat approximately eighteen pounds of kale and/or spinach per week), and added spicy, anti-inflammatory ginger and fresh turmeric, along with a peeled lime for some metaphysical spice.
If only cleaning our little let’s-just-try-it-out juicer weren’t such a pain in the tuchus.
This juice is packed full of:
- vitamin A
- vitamin C
- and belly-soothing gingery ginger
Let’s do this. Let’s do superfood power punch with a bright summer tartness. Kapow! Take that, unwellness.
- 1 medium beet , trimmed and quartered
- 6 large carrots , trimmed and halved
- 2" piece fresh turmeric
- 1/2" piece fresh ginger
- 1 lime , peeled
- Juice all ingredients and serve immediately.
