Let’s go through what exactly you will be getting from this delicious little drink. The apples contain a great amount of vitamin C and fiber that will help to keep you full and keep your digestive tract running smoothly. Kale has a good reputation for a reason. Kale is a phenomenal source of vitamin K, A, and C, folate, B vitamins, copper, manganese, and fiber.
Now, to the beets and beet greens. Beets are a root vegetable and they are full of folate, a vitamin that is important for women of childbearing age and to keep us all energized. They also contain betalains, which is a phytochemical that has antioxidant properties! Antioxidants have the potential to prevent some cancers Did you know that the greens on the beets are edible? The beet greens are a great source of magnesium, which keeps your brain and muscles functioning properly! Beets grow well all over the country and they are in season in early summer and fall.
All you need to do to prep this one is wash your apple, the beet greens, the beet, kale, ginger, and lime. Throw it all in your juicer, except for the lime and juice away! Once you’re done, squeeze in the juice of that lime and enjoy!
