Highlights & Tips

I have been preparing and drinking fresh juice for over 10 years.  I use to drink the premade chemical workout drinks found on most grocery shelfs.  NO MORE....  I've tried dozens of different drinks and found this one to be perfect.  Perfect that is if you like beets & a natural boost!

The key to making any juice especially for your workouts is to be prepared to make them quickly.  That means have your fruits and vegetables washed and ready to grab and extract your juice when you are ready!  I always wash my produce then place them in food containers in the refrigerator so I can quickly grab them when I need them!

Having your produce and ingredients organized and ready will help you quickly make this workout drink when you need it!

Health Benefits

I make this drink every morning before my workouts!  I've tried dozens of different workout drink combinations and this is it!  First I love using all organic whole foods for my workout drinks.... no chemical workout powders created in a lab, just natures perfect foods to get you started the right way!  

Did you know that drinking fresh beet juice increases ones workouts by 19%.  I also add the Matcha green tea to provide natural caffeine for a kick and Pearl Moon Juice for anti-aging mineral properties.  Keeps you young & healthy!

I add the unflavored plant protein powder for that perfect workout drink!  If you like beets this is the workout drink for you!  Look no further.....

Recipe Supplies

Every kitchen needs a juicer!  I'm very biased but strongly believe in juicing everyday to quickly consume & digest raw vegetables!

I used this unflavored raw organic plant protein for my workout drinks!  It contains 120 calories with 22 grams of protein!  Perfect for any protein or workout drink!

The best way to prepare yourself to make fresh juice is to have your fruit and vegetables stored in food containers to grab quickly!  I place all my veggies in containers after I wash them up!  This way I just quickly grab a few to make a lovely immune boosting juice.

Presentation

The easiest way to prepare your drink is to blend your protein drink in a blend bottle.  This type of bottle mixes the protein, Matcha and Pearl Powder for a silky smooth workout drink!  

Budget Tips

If you want to save a little money make your own juice.  If you buy your produce in bulk and clean and prep things yourself you will save a little money.  I purchase some of my vegetables at a club like Costco or a local farmers market.  I'm blessed to live near a weekly farmers market and know several vendors who give me a deal on fresh veggies if I buy bulk and buy often!    If a farmers market is not available try asking your local grocery manager if they can get a bigger pack size for carrots or beets.  You would be surprised what you might find!    

Purchase small quantities of Matcha.  This only lasts about a month if sealed in a tight dark container, then it goes bitter from the oxygen.  It's expensive so if money is tight skip the Matcha and Moon Juice.  The most important ingredients is the veggies!

Storage Recommendations

Storage is VERY important when holding on to your juice!  First it's important to know if using a centrifugal juicer your fresh juice will only be good for 24 hours if sealed in a tight jar or bottle in the refrigerator.  If using a masticating or cold press juicer you can hold onto your juice for 3-4 days in a refrigerator.

Its best to drink your fresh juice right away but if you can't place it in a tight sealed jar or bottle with little air.  The sooner you drink your fresh juice the more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals you will consume!

What to do with left over's or extra product?

As luck would have it fresh beets can last in your refrigerator up to two weeks if needed.  You can also cook the rest of your beets if you don't intend on using them soon and freeze them which will last up to 12 months in your freezer.

If you have left over Kale trim the edges off when you bring them home and wash them up in a cold bath of vinegar water.  This not only naturally cleans your produce trimming the kale helps keep it fresher longer.  Think of it like trimming fresh flowers it's the same thing!  Trimming your Kale can add a few extra days in the refrigerator lasting up to 5-7 days!

DIRECTIONS

Make sure you clean and wash your vegetables before you make your juice.  This is especially important because you will be consuming this juice in it's natural raw state, the way nature intended!

Step 1

Step 2

Once your vegetables are cleaned make sure they are cut if needed to fit in your juicer.  (Depends on the juicer you have)  

It doesn't matter what order you juice your vegetables although I tend to juice one vegetable at a time then move onto the next.
