The crisp, fresh watermelon in this juice harmonizes with tart citrus, a tropical kiss of pineapple and is brightened with a hint of mint and ginger, then grounded with the earthy sweetness of beet to culminate into a lovely magenta concoction. Combined with the mood-enhancing benefits from the maca root powder and rose water, this juice will take you to your happy place.
½ of a small beet, ends cut off
1 inch chunk of fresh ginger, skin on
1 small handful of mint
½ of a small lemon, peeled
2 wedges fresh pineapple, rind trimmed
1 wedge fresh watermelon, rind trimmed
1 teaspoon maca root powder
4 drops rose water
Prep the fruit and veggies as described above. All ingredients will go into juicer in the order listed. The pineapple will fill the total mixture to about 10 ounces and then proceed with watermelon until filled to 18 ounces. Add maca and rose water to final mixture and whisk until maca is dissolved.
