I don't really believe in "juicing," not in the sense that I am going to subsist on juice for three days. I get hangry if I skip my morning snack, so I can't imagine enjoying a juice cleanse. I will keep any toxins that may be in my body, thank you very much! That said, I love a glass of fresh juice as a snack or with a meal. I especially like fruit and vegetable combinations.
Carrot Orange Beet Smoothie
1 small beet, peeled and diced
1 carrot, peeled and diced
1/2 orange, peeled
1 handful kale (about 1/2 c), washed and de-stemmed
2 Tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1-2 teaspoons honey (to taste... more if you want it sweeter!)
1/2 c ice
optional: 1/2 c frozen cauliflower (I use this to make a thicker smoothie for smoothie bowls!)
