It’s no secret; most store-bought drinks and juices are loaded with large amounts of sugars and preservatives. As a result, I try to keep them to a minimum.¬† So, whenever I can, I crave out sometime each week and prepare my home-made juices and drinks. At least I know that they are fresh and only contain wholesome ingredients that will¬† provide me with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients.

This week my juice of choice is a combination one. One that is full of huge amounts of beta-carotene and other nutrients. It only took me a few minutes to rinse a few carrots and beetroot, and a piece of ginger root. I made sure to chop these ingredients to accommodate my standing blender. These were added to blender with cold water and a generous squeeze of fresh lemon.

These ingredients were blended to a smooth and refreshing finish. I used my strainer to remove pulp which will be used into healthy muffins. My drink was a brilliant burgundy hue as my beetroot ruled.
