Juice Series: Beet, Kale, Apple, and Lime Juice

by Marisa Olsen


Move aside Organic Avenue and Blue Print Cleanse! After spending nearly $10 or more on a single juice, we recently took the plunge and bought a juicer. We opted for the Breville. If you've seen (and, if you're like me, cried) the documentary film Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, you know the juicer I'm talking about. The big kahuna. So far, we're loving it. While I haven't juiced for a whole day, I'm aiming to enjoy homemade juice for breakfast or a mid afternoon snack at least three times a week. So far, it's going great, although we've had a few setbacks/challenges: mainly cleaning the machine and it's many parts, and finding the room in our mini fridge to store all of the fruits and vegetables. Plus, we need to identify a better/cheaper way to purchase the goods, because $30 at the NYC grocery store for a few apples and kale is not fiscally sustainable. However, I'm sure we will find a routine that works. 

Here's one of our favorite juices so far. 

Beet, Kale, Apple, and Lime Juice

Serves Two

2 beets thoroughly washed and sliced into wedges
1 handful of beet greens, optional
1 head of kale
2 apples sliced into wedges, core removed
1 lime, peeled and halved

Slowly add your ingredients one at a time with the proper settings and speeds. Fill your glass with goodness. Clean your machine. Enjoy.
I especially like to top my juice off with the incredible foam that you can see above. It's really delightful and full of nutrients.
