Ingredients 

  • 1 beet
  • 1 cup of washed and shredded red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup of sweet red pepper
  • 1 orange
  • 1 apple
  • 1 inch of ginger root
Instructions 

  1. Peel and chop your red beet, making sure to wear disposable gloves because beet juice can stain your fingers and clothes. Make sure your red cabbage is washed, dried and then shredded for ease of use.
  2. Chop the sweet red pepper, making sure to remove the seeds and white membrane. Peel your orange and break it into segments, removing as much as the pith as you can and any seeds.
  3. Peel all of the rough rind off of the ginger root until you have a small 1-inch long piece, which you can cut into several smaller pieces. Then finally peel, core and chop your apple. This should be left until last because this is the ingredient most likely to oxidize.
  4. Once all of your ingredients are prepared run them through your juicer and make yourself a tasty, ruby red and healthy juice drink.
