Juice for Weight Loss: Beet ‘n Spinach

IMG_7666

I have a juice at least once a day–sometimes twice or three times, but this recipe is one of my favorites. It doesn’t have a lot of protein in it, so if you are looking for more protein, you can easily add a protein powder or add some yogurt. The ginger and lemon gives this juice very bright flavors. The beet and apple add some delicious sweetness, and the spinach and cucumber give it more nutritional benefits and rich flavor. This juice is wonderful any time of day, and also beautiful! Enjoy, guys!

Yield: 1 and 1/2 cups of juice

-1/2 medium sized beet, skin removed

-1/3 cup mixed berries (frozen)

-1 cup leaf spinach

-1/4 of a medium sized cucumber

-1 apple. chopped -1 tsp fresh ginger

-Juice of 1/2 a lemon

-1/3-1/2 cups of water

Place all of the ingredients into a NutriBullet, Ninja, or which ever blender/mixer/juicer you own. I leave the skins on my fruits and vegetables for the fiber content, except for the cucumber. You can look up which fruits you should skin due to their likelihood of containing chemicals. You can adjust how much water you put in the cup based on how thick you like it. I like my juice pretty thick, so I typically only use a little, but I’d say most people would prefer 1/2 cup of water in this recipe.
