I love juicing.  I know you lose the fiber when you juice (I KNOW, OK!), and I know it can be a little time consuming and expensive, but I find the process oddly soothing and gratifying.  Not to mention that fresh juice is extremely hydrating and full of vitamins so there we go I'm gonna keep doing it.  High on the list of fun veggies to juice are beets.  Why?  Because they're pink.  And because they're full of B vitamins, folate, and lots of antioxidants.  But mostly the pink thing.

Beet juice is a little intense to drink on its own, so one delish way to enjoy it is in latte form!  This is perfect for brunch - your friends will be super impressed.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond milk (preferably homemade)
  • 1/2 cup beet juice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch sea salt

Directions:

Heat almond milk in a saucepan until just simmering.  Combine all ingredients in blender on a high speed until frothy.  Drink immediately!
