One of the latest nutrition trends taking over LA is cold-pressed juice. It seems like a new juice shop pops up every week with new flavors and cleanses. We’ve become such fans of this healthy juicing revolution that we’ve invested in our own at-home juicers to satisfy our daily craving. Juicing is a simple and delicious way to pack more fruit and vegetables into your diet and we hope you’ll enjoy our delicious ginger beet juice recipe below!

1 lemon, peeled
2 medium whole carrots
1. Wash the fruit and vegetables thoroughly.
2. Remove the carrot and beetroot tops. Peel lemon. Slice and remove apple cores.

TIP: Keep all your ingredients in the fridge prior to juicing. This will make your juice cooler without having to add ice, which could water down the flavor.
