Pulp Beet Carrot Cucumber Juice 1of3

Avoiding the use of toxic red food dye is simply a matter of obtaining some of beet liquid. I discovered recently that this juice is quite delicious! Considering how rock-hard they are in their natural state, beets produce a good amount of smooth, mild juice that is great on its own or when blended with carrot and cucumber juice.
