Cactus Fruit Juice

Experimenting is always fun when the end results turn out better than your expectations. I  initially experimented with this fruit with my children for a Summer refresher and this was absolutely delicious.This is very refreshing, yet interesting flavor.

I will add strawberries to the next one but this would make it a strawberry cactus lemonade. Sweet yet tart.

INGREDIENTS:

3 cactus fruit peeled
2 limes peeled
1 Apple peeled
8 oz water

1 cup strawberries (optional)
For strawberry cactus lemonade

Blend all ingredients in blender. Strain twice to make smooth juice.

Just BEET It!

Its beginnings are dark. A seed of blackness. Implanted into more darkness but with sprouts of holes allowing the sun to awaken it from its shell. Deep red roots but everlasting greenness rises to it’s calling. It grows, it’s stems, like veins, is the leafs lifeline of support. It carries the head yet is strong enough to keep its roots into place. Bulging greatness, round circles forms within its cell beneath the earth, creating a stimulus package of protein, vitamin B folate, zinc, magnesium, fiber, copper, and many other nutrients that support your blood pressure, inflammation, and stamina. 

Its creator pours, slice, and beet the beets. Crushing the skins inner flesh that she sheds from removal. Just the presence of her redness reflects where she comes from. The coastlines of North Africa is where she originates yet her roots are everywhere. Being planted from state to state, her bloodline reflects her resilience and earthiness to adapting to many climates and soils. She tastes just as sweet as Africa yet as earthy as the soil that surrounds her. 

From time to time, her brilliance of life is combined with other fruits to make a pack of detox body love.
