This nutrition-packed juice happened by mistake. My boss, being the boss that she is, got a huge fruit basket from a media vendor (the perks of the job!) and decided she only wanted one apple. She left all of the other fruits for us to pick and I took everything that was left behind because, well, I don't turn away free food.
I had bought beets and carrots since I blend them quite regularly, and decided to just give it a go and create something new. The ultimate outcome was delicious. It tasted sweet and tangy and jam packed with health benefits.
The process is quite simple. Press all of fruits and veggies, except the lemon, in whichever order you want. At the end squeeze the lemon on top. This juice yields enough for two big glasses.
This juice is great for fall, when the immune system needs a boost. Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, beta-cyanine and folic acid are just a few of what these fruits contain. Beets also cleanse the liver. Any 20-something New Yorker needs that. Do I have to explain why?
Cheers to a healthy fall.
