As much as I have tried to think otherwise, I hate the taste of beets. They taste weird, they’re gross, I don’t like their texture…just can’t handle them.
I’ve tried making beet chips with my dehydrator, since the beets in the Trader Joe’s Vegetable Root Chips were tasty enough…but mine definitely didn’t taste remotely like those. They were nasty.
So, I’ve resorted to accepting that the only way I will probably ever benefit from the nutrients and digestive support that beets provide, is through juicing. Below is a juice recipe I came up with, basically based off of some of the last vegetable contents to be found in my fridge (a shopping trip is long due…) It tasted quite delicious, having a sweet taste and an awesome orange-sherbet-esque color. So I’m sharing the recipe below with all of you. Enjoy!
- 1 medium size orange beet
- 1 large carrot
- 1/2 stalk organic celery
- 1 orange
- 1 organic apple
Wash all the ingredients well.
Juice the beet, chopping in half or in smaller chunks if needed. Next juice the carrot. Peel the orange and juice that, followed by the apple. Lastly juice the celery.
Makes approximately 3 cups (24 oz).
