Summer is heating up quickly here in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina!
One of our favorite ways to beat the heat is with a freshly made glass of juice.
I prefer this one in the afternoon when the sun is hottest and I could go for something sweet and refreshing.
If your body isn’t used to eating beets on the reg, you may want to stick to just a small glass of this one at first. Let your system build a tolerance to it.
- 1 small beet, scrubbed and chopped
- 1 green apple, cored and chopped
- 5 carrots (a note: this will determine how sweet your juice will be, and I found that with this amount it was just slightly sweet)
- A handful of mint
- Small slice of lemon
Juice it all together and that’s that! The beets are packed with antioxidants, so in my mind this really is just the right snack after a hot afternoon in the garden, pre- or post-workout, or just because you feel like it.
