Root Juice Cocktail

A few years ago Tim and I invested in the cutest juicer on the planet. We juiced at least three times a day during the first few weeks with our new appliance. That is a lot of juice! Eventually we tamed ourselves and lessened our juicing to once a day. Sometimes we skip a day, but we try very hard to incorporate fresh juice into our daily routine. It’s easy to stick to favorite juices and often we forget that we have so many options! A few days ago I made a juice using parsnips! The recipe comes from Refresh by Ruth Tal. The book has an entire section dedicated to juices, smoothies, and elixirs. The juice I made is called the Root Juice Cocktail. It is a blend of parsnips, carrots, beets, and ginger. Of course I made one change and added apple. It is apple season afterall!

I liked this juice very much. Parsnips add a sweet, nutty flavor and the beets make it so darn pretty. Pretty sweet juice – who can resist?!
