This natural beets, carrots and orange juice is incredibly delicious and very nutritious. It’s high in Vitamin C and a powerful antioxidant that supports healthy blood flow.
Growing up, I clearly remember my grandmother used to make and drink this juice every day. She used to always serve me a cup as well and it was one of my favorites. It still is.
When I was pregnant with my son, I literally craved this beets, carrots and orange juice every day. A dear family friend knew this and was always so happy to make me a whole jar. Whenever I came to visit her, she’d take me into her kitchen, pull out the full jar from her fridge and say, “mira lo que te tengo (Look what I have for you).” I swear my son would jump in my belly with excitement as I drank it.
When I was a child, I really enjoyed drinking this juice mostly because it tastes really good. Now I understand that this juice is not only delicious, but it’s also really good for you!
