I recently read that if you drink the same juice over and over again you can essentially poison yourself and wind up really sick! If that wasn't enough motivation to get me to branch away from my daily green drink, then nothing was going to help. I saw organic beets at the local market, so I picked some up, figuring I'd trade in the green juice for a red juice. Beets are so good for you and a great way to cleanse the body, but to be honest, I don't really like the taste. I added lemon and ginger to hide the taste, knowing that these are also detoxifying, and added some carrot for a color boost and some apple to sweeten it a bit. The end result was a smooth, refreshing juice with just the mildest hint of beet taste. Hope you enjoy!
