Just Beet It

1 1/2 cups beet juice*

1/2 cup carrot juice

1 cup orange or pineapple juice

1 cup apple juice

2 cups ginger beer or ginger ale

1 lime or lemon

2 cups chopped fruit (peaches, apples, raspberries, blueberries, etc.)

1/4 cup agave or a dash of stevia (optional)**


If a juicer isn’t handy, use cold-pressed beet juice.  You may also use store-bought orange juice and apple juice and if you can’t find any carrot juice balance out the other juices with the proper 1/2 cup quantity.

If making fresh juice, juice raw beets, orange, and apple. Divide juice evenly among 3-4 mason jars.

Add 1/2 cup ginger beer or ale to each mason jar.

Squeeze fresh lime juice into each jar.

Mix. Add chopped fruit. Stir.

Practice your moon dance while this chills for at least 30 minutes or overnight (fruit will marinate). Serve over ice.
