A Mineral-Rich Beet + Basil Juice You Can Make Without A Juicer

I discovered the powerful benefits of juicing in my first year of nutrition school, and I’ve been committed to my juicer ever since! Juicing is the fastest way to get a concentrated amount of nutrients into the system in the shortest, yummiest amount of time.

After a stroll through my local farmers market, I was inspired to make this particular juice by the incredible beauty and bright colors of the fresh, organic produce.

I was looking for something refreshing, hydrating, sweet, and remineralizing —perfect for a warm summer day—and so I concocted the Organic Beet + Basil Hydrator for us to enjoy!

Pro Tip: Remember to keep your juicing ingredients organic. Juices run right through our digestive systems and we want these ingredients to be as clean as possible; otherwise, you're giving yourself a pesticide injection, and that's just not a good time.
