Beet the heat

Finally the warm weather is here! It’s so wonderful to spend time outdoors and in the sun. I find that in the warmer months I start craving smoothies and juices. My kids do too. I mean why not? Summer sun, hot weather, cool juice. They go great together. Very rarely do you find me following a recipe but there are some great ones in The Juicing Bible by Pat Crocker. Most of the time I'm in the kitchen just throwing things together to blend or juice. But I’m often asked for specific recipes so I started writing them down. This is one that my kids and I came up with. It’s sweet, spicy and absolutely delicious. They love when their mouths turn bright red from the beet juice.
