This hearty and flavorful fresh pressed rainbow juice is packed with nutrients and serves as a great start to your day or a midday pick-me-up!
Servings: 2 8 ounce glasses
- 2 small beets (or 1 large beet)
- 2 small oranges , any variety (or 1 medium sized orange)
- 2 stalks celery
- 1/2 English cucumber
- 1 small apple
- 2 large handfuls of spinach
Wash and prep all fruits and vegetables, making sure to peel the beets and orange, and core the apple. No need to peel the apple or cucumber.
Cut up to fit in your juicer, and prepare each juice separately if you'd like to achieve the rainbow effect, or combine all ingredients together to create a single juice.
Strain if necessary, and serve chilled.
Note that when prepping the fruits and veggies for the juicer, you need to peel both the oranges and the beets and you need to core the apple (no need to peel the apple!).
I ended up shaking my fresh pressed juice all up after I took these pictures, but if you'd like to create the same rainbow effect at home, make sure you leave some pulp in your orange juice so it's "heavier" and then strain your beet juice if need be to make it "lighter."
Pour in your orange juice first, then slowly add in your beet, and watch the two magically float on top of each other. Then add in your green juice on top, and grow sad that you can't create the same cool layering effect with the green juice, and then get over it. Shake or stir, drink and enjoy!
