It’s rich, it’s ruby red, the delicious beet-carrot-apple juice is a good source of both vitamins C and K. If you’re too squeamish to start with the green juice, you’d probably find that this juice is not only easy to make and beautifully coloured, but delicious and easy on the palette, so much so that kids will love it.
The beet-carrot-apple juice contains beta-carotene which is really great for your skin and night vision, as beta-carotene is normally converted to vitamin A in the body.
The best way to source your fruits and vegetable sis from the farmer’s market, and go for organic if you can afford to. However, as most nutritionists would tell you, supermarket brands aren’t bad either.
I’m a firm believer in drinking your juice immediately it is made, whenever possible. It would taste better and all that goodness in your vegetables and fruits are undoubtedly still locked in. This is not to say that your juice loses all its nutrients if you choose to store your juice for 24 – 72 hours in an airtight container (which is the recommended stage period and method for freshly made juices). Your juice will still be intact but not as delicious as it would have been the moment you first made it.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to be juicing 100% to enjoy delicious healthy juices. You can drink this juice as part of a healthy diet or as a healthy meal accompaniment.
2 Medium beets
1 Granny Smith apple
3 Medium carrots
1 Lemon (Optional)
Clean and trim your beets and slice (optional) if your juicer does not take whole fruits or vegetables.
Core your apples, you can choose to peel them or leave them with the skin on. And like the beets, you don’t have to slice these if your juicer can take whole fruits and vegetables.
Clean your carrots and cut out both ends.
Optional: If you like zesty kick in your drinks, you can choose to add a lemon but this is not for everyone. You can try both with and without lemon and see which of the two flavours you like best.
