Uncle Matty’s Beet Juice

Unlike most processed juices found on the shelves of the supermarket which are loaded with refined sugar, all-natural juices made at home are richer in vitamins and minerals. Beets provide a natural detoxification because of their phytonutrients so this is a perfect drink for post-holidays. They are also a good source of vitamin C, potassium and fiber. You simply cannot beat Uncle Matty’s nutrient rich beet juice!ย

A generous handful of kale washed
A generous handful of parsley washed
3 Tbsp of Chia with 1/2 c of water soaked
1 Tbsp fresh turmeric (optional)

  • Important to note that this recipe can easily be adapted to whatever ingredients you have on hand. Swiss chard can replace the kale, a pear can replace the apple etc.ย
