Juicing adventures – Roses are Red and so are Beets

BB_Heart Goblets

 

Adventure in juicing continues to be on our radar.  This week we pulverized a pineapple, some oranges, cantaloupe, carrots, and 2 giant beets.

For those skeptics out there, the beet juice is actually very subtle and delicious.

This one turned out so pretty that I just wanted to admire it, but I quickly drank it and found it to be one of the all time greats.  Literally every addition had the ability to add its own individual sugar, so this one was very sweet.

Juice of the Day – Beet, Pineapple, Orange

We have always been curious about juicers but we didn’t know a lot about them.  Because they are so expensive, we hesitated to invest in one only to find later that this was another “whim” that we would tire of quickly.

Luckily (I guess you could look at it that way…) we found one at Aldi after the holidays for a very reasonable price — so the experiment began.

Saturday mornings are prime time for the juice experiment, and we proudly text a photo of the juice du jour to our kids and kids-in-laws to show them our creation.  Their responses are respectful, but I think they are worried about us.  Cool

Today I decided on a simple blend.  See recipe below.

 Beet-Orange-Pineapple Juice
  1. 1 large beet
  2. 3 oranges
  3. 1/2 fresh pineapple
  1. Wash the beet and slice into large chunks. If the beet has the greens attached, wash the greens and include them in the juice.
  2. Cut the pineapple into chunks
  3. Peel the oranges
  4. Place the beet into the shoot of the juicer along with the pineapple and orange so the juicier items are blended along with the harder vegetable.

Notes:

Give it a stir and pour into two large juice glasses or rocks glasses.
