Super Beet Energy Juice
Where are all of my juicers at? I am amping up my juice game with my Super Beet Energy Juice made with lots of fresh and mega-nutrient dense ingredients. This incredible juice starts with one whole large red beetroot washed and quartered. We all know that superfood beets are fantastic, and packed with a cadre of super-healthy nutrients, including folate, betaine, magnesium, potassium, folate, Vitamin C, and an impressive dose of nitrates. Yes, nothing beats beets! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
For this juice recipe, it all starts with one large beetroot washed and then quartered.
Next, I added a two-inch length of ginger root, quartered a whole Granny Smith apple, and the juice of one fresh squeezed lemon.
I also tossed in two cups of fresh collard; these are another superfood packed with lots of calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and a good source of vitamin K, iron, vitamin B-6, and lots of magnesium.
This recipe makes over 2 1/2 cups of juice, that’s a lot a good and a whole lot of good stuff too! I also freeze leftover juice into ice cubes, which make a great addition for smoothies.
Beets are also available year round, and they’re fairly inexpensive.
