To celebrate the return of our favorite summer show, we used our new juicer to whip up a chilled glass of “true blood” (aka berry & beet juice). While these servings of fresh fruit and vegetable juice won’t give you the superhero strength of vampire blood, I’m sure sure they’re pretty packed with nutrients nonetheless.
One of the nice things about juicing is you can really experiment and try different things you’ve got on hand. For this particular libation, we used half a small beet and a few handfuls each of blueberries, grapes, and cherries. You can use more or less of the beet depending on your appreciation for this earthy veggie. Garnish with a lemon wheel and a few cherries, and enjoy!
Also, if you’re not watching True Blood…. I don’t even know what to do with you.
