Unbeetapple Juice (beet and apple Juice)
UnBeetApple Juice is a combination of Beet and Apple Juice
Have you ever tried beet juice? For some, the smell of beets alone is already a turn-off and though they are common in almost any grocery store, they are often over-looked and ignored. Beet juice has a mild to strong “earthy” smell and flavor to it. Beets are rich in geosmin which gives them this unusual taste and smell. Geosmin is an organic compound produced by microbes in the soil. It is responsible for the musty, earthy scent that occurs after a light summer rain.
If you are one of those who dislike the taste of beet juice yet wanted to experience its health benefits, fret no more as you can make it naturally sweeter and taste better. Simply combine it with one of the all-time favorite fruit – apple. Pure beet juice has indeed a sharp taste but adding slices of apple will give it a uniquely rich and tasty flavor. Apples are not only delicious, they are also sweet, juicy and have a distinct mild flavor. Combining the juice of beet with apple is an ideal recipe for a healthy diet
Preparation of the Beet and Apple Juice
- 4 Apples
- 2 beets
Slice the apples and beets into half.
Remove the seeds of the apples.
