Juicing adventures: Juicing dark leafy greens and beets

Posted by on October 7, 2013 at 9:28 am.

This morning, I made a lovely vegetable juice with dark leafy greens and beets. I’m drinking it now…  it’s so good!

It’s not sweet and I imagine many would turn there nose up at this drink, but I’m not most people. I must say, that I’ve been enjoying my non-sweet drinks for years.

Vegetable Juice: Greens & Beets

  • 4 cups of kale
  • 5 beets
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 lime
  • 1/2 medium sized yellow onion
  • 1 habanero pepper

 

This is not a sweet drink, in fact when I gave some to my father he drank it and let out a “WHOO!” just like a train whistle, but I told him if he slowly incorporated juices like this into his routine, he’d get to the point where he could drink them straight… just like me!

Some of the produce came from the garden, but the bulk of it came from a local farm. Saturday, my daughter and I went to  the farm and I purchased a three dozen sweet corn, several beets, celery and a large amount of greens; collards and kale. The cart was overflowing and my bill was less than $23.  I thought that was a great deal with the amount I purchased. Since it’s at a local farm, I know the freshness is much better than what I get from the local grocery store.

For your information…

Remember, if you consume beet juice your urine and/or bowel movements might turn red in color.
