OMG! beetroot, carrot and citrus with ginger juice:

I usually make a juice every day and drink it within two days; this gives the opportunity to mix the juices together.  This combo is so distractingly good, it completely converted me from a lifelong hatred of beetroot to loving it.

Juice I  Ingredients:

  • 2 parts root ginger
  • 2 part whole lime
  • 2 parts whole lemon
  • 6 parts whole orange (can be any orange including clementines, minneolas etc.)

 Juice II Ingredients:

  • 2 parts root ginger
  • 6 parts carrots
  • 6 parts beetroots
  • 6 parts apple

Fill a glass with half of each, watch the red, yellows and orange swirl together and enjoy the zinginess of citrus balanced with an earthy sweetness.
