RED RISER JUICE

Isn't the color of that all-natural, super good-for-you juice lovely??? No really. Take five minutes and just take in that color please... Isn't it pretty?

Yes. I'm stalling.

I'm stalling because I don't want to tell you what's in that juice. But I'm going to tell you anyway because your taste buds and your body will be missing out on something that is so surprisingly good and good for you. Friends, the color of that juice is from... beets. Yep. Beets. Beets get such a bad wrap and I've definitely contributed to that. Beets are the one vegetable that I don't really like. When I think of beets, I think of the bitter canned beets my mom used to try to get me to eat when I was a kid. YUCK.

But recently a certain juice changed my thoughts on beets a bit... A few months ago, I was in Whole Foods to get my usual juice, a Green Lemonade. But I was struck by the color of another juice they had called, "Mommy Boost." I wanted to try it until I read the sign that said the juice had beets in it. But the guy behind the counter convinced me to try it and I loved it! Could I taste the beets?? Yes. BUT, the beets combined with the other fruits and vegetables in the juice perfectly complimented the beets and made them taste so much better.

I ordered the "Mommy Boost" that day and over the holidays I recreated it at home with a few minor adjustments. But before I give you the recipe, I want to tell you one important thing. If you don't have a juicer, you are in luck! I made this using my Vitamix and a fine mesh strainer and it turned out great! So a decent blender is all you really need.

Here is what you need and what to do:
(Makes 1 serving)

1 Granny Smith apple, cored
1 medium carrot, peeled
1 medium beet, peeled
1 orange, peeled
1 lemon, peeled (a lime works here, too)
4 mint leaves
1/2 cup bottled or filtered water (only if using a blender)
ice

If you are using a juicer, simply pass the ingredients through the juicer.

If you are using a blender, chop the apple, lemon and vegetables to help out the blender. Add all of the ingredients except the ice in the order listed. Blend until smooth. Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl. Pour the mixture into the strainer. Wait about 5 minutes or so for the juice to strain.

Pour the juice over ice and enjoy!

  6. What? no ginger??? That's what really kicks this up a notch or two! Now, how can we know what nutrition is actually in this? The WF Mommy Boost doesn't list much, mainly, I guess, because the really nutritious elements are not part of the required labeling. Any ideas anybody?

  23. would like to show my appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this type of situation. After looking through the the net and seeing methods which were not pleasant, I figured my life was over. Living minus the answers to the problems you’ve sorted out by way of your entire short article is a crucial case, and those that might have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn’t come across your web site. Your actual capability and kindness in maneuvering all the pieces was vital. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this high quality and results-oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to refer your site to anyone who requires counselling about this issue.

    My wife and i ended up being so fortunate that Jordan managed to deal with his inquiry out of the precious recommendations he was given out of the blog. It’s not at all simplistic just to find yourself giving away tactics which often a number of people have been trying to sell. And we realize we’ve got the writer to be grateful to because of that. All of the explanations you made, the easy website menu, the friendships your site help engender – it’s got most fabulous, and it’s really aiding our son in addition to the family understand the topic is enjoyable, and that’s really pressing. Thank you for the whole lot!
