What makes this juice so brightly colored?
Whenever I pick up beets at the store, they always sit in my fridge for too long and then end up in a juice or smoothie. I buy them with the intention to try them in a new recipe, but I never know what to do with them. I used to be scared of them, although they did make a colorful addition to this delish Quinoa Stuffing from a while back. While beets are highly nutritious, they’re pretty earthy-tasting, which is why I think they taste best in a salad of some sort but for now, I’m sharing this invigorating Rosy Glow Refresher juice.
Do you ever get sick of the same old green juice?! I know I do and sometimes it’s nice to refresh your body with vitamins and minerals from other colorful veggies that are just as nutritious and healthy as all the greens.
I’m also keeping up with the “Pamper Your Glow” vibe. I’m turning this into a brand new series for TGF!
Pamper Your Glow, take 2!
I love everything about this mantra and if you missed my first post to kick off this series, click here.
So what goes in this Rosy Glow Refresher?
This juice is such a fresh and revitalizing blend of fruits and vegetables which makes it easier for you to add variety and color to your healthy diet. Some people are scared off by green juice, so this would be a yummy place to start. As I mentioned in my Golden Glow Elixir post, I love to keep all of the fiber and nutrients from the skin, so instead of juicing the ingredients, I blend them up with water and a handful of ice, similar to a smoothie. This way it’s more filling and acts as a legit snack or meal (if you drink 32 ounces). It’s totally up to you and you are welcome to juice everything for a smoother sip but if you have a high speed blender, I say blend it all up and don’t waste the pulp with all the good fiber and nutrients. Once you pour this juice, it will settle a bit and you may have to keep stirring it or else you will end up with all the pulp at the bottom, but I love drinking it this way!
You may be wondering, what’s so great about beets anyway?
Beets get their deep crimson pigment from the compound betanin, which assists in cleansing and detoxifying the liver while also purifying the blood. This helps us achieve beautiful and healthy glowing skin. They are also high in phytosterols, vitamin A and folate as well as the minerals potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. They pack quite the nutritional punch.
You can even blend/juice the stem for extra plant power. Next time you pass by beets in the grocery store, pick some up and try this oh so refreshing and beautiful juice!
- 1 small beet, peeled and quartered, stem removed
- 3 medium carrots, chopped
- 1 apple, chopped
- 1 lime, peel removed
- 2-inch knob of fresh ginger, peeled
- 2 1/2 cups cold water
- handful of ice (optional)
- Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
- You can also juice all of the ingredients but I like to keep in all of the fiber and nutrients.
- The juice does separate a bit after a few minutes (as seen in the pictures) so just make sure keep stirring it up!
Are you a fan of beets? How do you cook them?! I need some ideas!
