Beet, Carrot and Pluot Juice


The health benefits of root vegetables can be attributed to their richness in nutrients, vitamins and minerals and organic compounds like carotenoids, dietary fiber and flavonoids.  Drinking fresh juices are a great way to get in your daily recommended servings of fruit and vegetables, strengthen your immune system, detoxify your body and improve digestion. Another bonus to drinking fresh juices - they taste great!


Beet, Carrot and Pluot Juice
(makes 1 juice)

    5 small beets, or 2 large beets, leaves removed
    3-4 large carrots, ends removed
    3 celery stalks
    3 kale leaves (we used lacinato, but any kale will work for this juice)
    1-2 pluots, pit removed
    1/2 lemon, juiced
    2-inch piece ginger, peeled

Blender/Food Processor Directions: Chop the beets, carrots and celery into small pieces and blend with a little bit of water.

Chop the kale leaves and pluots and process until smooth. Add the lemon juice and grate approximately a tablespoon of ginger into the juice.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Juicer Directions: Feed whole small beets or large cut-up beets down the chute one at a time until processed.

Add the carrots, celery, kale leaves and pluots one at a time until processed. Process the piece of ginger. Mix the lemon juice in with the processed juice.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!
