I look all around the Internet this month and I see a common theme…everyone seems to want to turn things orange in honor of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Fall. Orange is a beautiful color, but I prefer it come from nature and not from a little tube of food coloring. Don’t get me wrong…I have a fondness for orange Cheetos and have been known to sneak a few candy corn on occasion but those are things I avoid on a day to day basis. Natural orange things like carrots, squash and pumpkins, however, can be eaten in great abundance with absolutely no guilt! This juice recipe, for example, was definitely a treat I felt good about indulging in!

I stumbled upon this juice recipe totally by accident. I meant to buy regular old beets…you know, those bright purple ones that stain every single thing they come into contact with? Instead, while I was shopping for ingredients to put in my juicer, I grabbed GOLDEN beets, which I had honestly never even heard of! That will teach me to do my grocery shopping while I’m in a hurry! So, when I got out all my ingredients to create this juice recipe today, I was amazed that my beets were a vibrant yellow inside! Paired with the carrots, apples and green bell pepper, I was really impressed with the resulting color! I decided that this juice recipe rivaled any other orange thing I have seen on the Internet lately so I wanted to share it with you. Maybe you will do some produce shopping this weekend and give it a try! No tube of food coloring required for THIS orange treat!
(NOTE: I use an old Oster brand juicer that I have had for 20 years. It is almost all stainless steel and very sturdy. I had no problems juicing the quantities used in this recipe but read your juicer’s manual before starting)
