Beet and Apple Resolution Juice

Beet and Apple Resolution Juice

Ceri is big on resolutions and I love to talk about them but, in the end, that’s all they really are for me–talk. The one thing I did know going into the new year was that I wanted to try and incorporate more juices into our routine. So if you’re insisting that I come up with a resolution then I resolve to drink more juices that I make at home. There. Now, if I blow this one, it’s your fault.

I’ve been hooked on juices from my local organic restaurant for ages but it was Scarlett’s new found interest in them that made me want to be more proactive about whipping them up in our own kitchen. All I needed was, well, you know, a juicer to whip them up in. Fast forward to my kitchen, my stand mixer and a KitchenAid attachment and now I’m a juicing genius. I can’t believe I haven’t been doing this, like, forever. Not only does it help me use up the scraps of fruits and vegetables that I inevitably have leftover (read: less grocery waste) but, honestly, the Juice and Sauce Attachment creates silky snacks full of vitamins. Juices really are a great way to get gobs of fruits and vegetables into your diet and, frankly, they are way more delicious. I mean, a dish of steamed kale is delicious (I’m overstating that, aren’t I?) but have you tried pressing the green stuff into a glass along with an apple, some ginger and a pear? Now that is yummy. A juice also works wonders when it comes to kids and vegetables which is why I was so inspired to be more of a juicer. Plus I swear I must be saving a fortune on costly juice combos by not frequenting my local organic spot. (Don’t worry, organic market friends. I will still need to regularly visit you for those peanut butter and chocolate cookies you obviously have made by angels in Heaven. And since those cookies have nothing to do with my resolution, you and I are still on the up and up.)
