‘Cool as a Cucumber’ Beet Juice

Courtesy of:  making thyme for health

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 beets, peeled and diced (approx. 2 cups)
  • 2 apples, cored and diced (approx. 2 cups)
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and cored (approx. 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup water + 2 teaspoons lime juice

INSTRUCTIONS

Place beets, apples, and cucumbers into a blender. Then add the water and lime juice and blend on high until smooth.

Transfer a portion of the pulp into a fine mesh strainer that is positioned over a large bowl or measuring cup and press down with a rubber spatula to drain the juice. Continue adding more pulp and pressing until you have emptied the blender. Allow the pulp to sit for at least ten minutes while stirring periodically to extract as much juice as possible.

Refrigerate for several hours and serve cold (over ice, if you please).

There is also a good bit of pulp left over from making this juice and you are more than welcome to eat it with a spoon so you can benefit from the fiber! Yummy!
