Serving size 4
In our blender I added:
4 small beets, softened
beet juice (if any)*
a handful of the beet leaves, chopped
1 carrots, peeled and chopped
small bunch of mint
1 to 1.5 cups of water
1 cup of orange juice
1. Remove the outer covering of the beets with a carrot peeler. Using a fork, poke holes in the beets and place in a microwave-safe dish. Steam for a few minutes in the microwave, or until tender. I checked ours every 30 seconds. Carefully remove beets from the microwave. Once the beets are cooled, chop into smaller pieces. Save any beet juice.
2. In a blender, add cooled beets, beet leaves, carrot, apple, mint, water, orange juice, and beet juice.* Liquify in your blender and enjoy!
*NOTE - If there is any beet juice from microwaving the beets, you can add to your blender too.
