Jucin’ Recipe: Papaya & The Beet

This is a super tasty and ultra healthy recipe for a yummy juice that’s pretty quick to make. Here’s what you’re going to need:

9 Carrots (Medium to Large)
1 Papaya
1/2 Beet
1″ Ginger Root
2″ Turmeric Root
1 Lemon

It’s pretty straightforward: Peel the carrots, slice the beet in two and cut off the skin, cut the very top and bottom off of the lemon, then cut off the lemon peel, grab a tiny bit of ginger and turmeric (you only need a tiny amount of ginger for the taste) and slice off the skin on each. For the papaya, cut it in two then scoop out the inside seeds, then cut away the yellow yummy parts into what you see below. Give everything a quick rinse, then juice! This recipe makes enough for two small glasses if you want to share, or 1 medium sized drink if you want all those amazing nutrients for yourself.
