A refreshing beet carrot apple juice that contains simple ingredients and will keep you going long after you've hit that afternoon slump!
Working from home has its upsides and its downsides. For me, there are definitely more upsides than down, I will never complain about it. Never. I enjoy it too much.
One of my favourite perks is having the luxury of walking to the kitchen and making something from scratch, whenever I feel like it. Like this beet carrot apple juice. Or as I like to call it: My "afternoon slump" juice.
Some days, particularly really busy ones, I hit a point in the afternoon where I just feel like this:
It's not just me, right?
Some days, as much as I want to, I can't just turn off my computer and call it a day. Deadlines are constantly calling my name.
Since I don't rely on caffeine to keep me going, one of my alternatives is to get up and make some fresh juice using whatever happens to be in the fridge.
I bought a compact juicer over the holidays, after debating whether I should get one for quite a while (for those of you who have asked, this is the one I bought!).
I was on the fence about a juicer because I swear by my smoothies and I think throwing away all that healthy fibre after juicing is a waste. BUT, I know that despite the lack of fibre, it can still have benefits, so why not?
This was the first juice combo I tried after buying my juicer. Naturally, it contains beets, because I love them for their positive benefits. Plus, look at the vibrant colour they contribute to the juice!
Don't you want to drink this RIGHT NOW?
Beets also happen to be a main ingredient in my favourite Berry Beet Ginger Smoothie (another must-try!).
In addition to the beets, it also has carrots and apples (carrots and apples work so well in pretty much any juice), cucumber which adds a nice fresh flavour, and one of my faves, fresh ginger, which adds a nice little "oh, hi there!" zing.
Overall, it's sweet and tangy with a little kick from the ginger. You really need to try it to know exactly what I'm trying to describe!
It's a very nice combo. I hope you like it.
