Cucumber Apple and Beet Juice + Giveaway!

Cucumber-Apple-and-Beet-JuiceThis Cucumber Apple and Beet Juice is a simple but healthy juice to make.

Besides its beautiful color, it has numerous benefits.

The recipe comes from The Big Book of Juices and Smoothies book by Natalie Savona.

One of the main reasons I really love this book is because it uses a 5-star rating system for each recipe, rating the following from 1 – 5 stars:  Energy, Detox, Immunity, Digestion and Skin.

Here are the ratings for this juice recipe:

  • Energy ***
  • Detox *****
  • Immunity ***
  • Digestion ****
  • Skin ****

Another reason this is one of my favorite books is that there are multiple ways to find the ideal recipe based on different indexes in the back of the book:

  1. Ailment – look up a juice recipe by your ailment (ex. anemia, chronic fatigue, cough, common cold & flu, fever, heartburn, motion sickness, stress, water retention, etc)
  2. Ingredient – look up a recipe by the ingredient (ex. apples, celery, spinach, carrots, beets, etc)
  3. Nutrient – look up a recipe by the nutrient (ex. vitamin A, chromium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, etc)

For example…if you look up by ingredient, this is how many juice recipes are listed for ingredients in this recipe:

  • Apples – 115 recipes you can use with apples
  • Cucumber – 23 recipes you can use with cucumbers
  • Beets – 17 recipes you can use with beets (beetroot)

This is very helpful if you are looking a what’s in your refrigerator and thinking “what can I make with…..”.  Just look up a recipe by ingredient for some good ideas.

The average ingredient list for each recipe is 3 – 4 ingredients so it’s ideal for beginners and the book has lots of color photos to enjoy.

I just love this book!
