Best beet lemonade ever!

If there’s one drink to reach for this spring/summer, make it this one! Lets face it, we are bombarded with a plethora of unhealthy beverage choices. These are usually skillfully marketed to make you feel that you “need” it, you just have to “have” it.I get it! So, sometimes it’s ok to indulge but why not throw in a drink choice that’s actually going to give back to your body?

Beet Benefits

Beets have been used in the natural health care field for several years, primarily for issues in the liver. They have also been known to help in other areas along the digestive tract, such as with digestion, kidney stones, gallbladder, and in the intestines. They also help to flush out uric acid. The top nutrients found in beets are calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, Vitamin C, folate and other B vitamins such as B1, 2,3, 5 and 6. How can you pass up a drink that can fuel your body with these life giving nutrients!?!? Maybe you’re not a beet lover? Me neither! For me, that’s huge…..I like all my vegetables. So trust me when I say this is one beet juice you’ll love!

For this recipe, I used beet juice crystals instead of straight up beet juice because I find they taste milder/less earthy 🙂 If you are a hardcore beet fan or, maybe you just don’t want to buy a jar of beet crystals, you can sub them with 2 cups of fresh beet juice and then only add in 1 cup of purified water.
