Beet, Pomegranate And Cranberry Juice

Right before Christmas I'd like to share with you a gift from nature: purple superfood juice that is loaded with vitamins,  antioxidants, and other phytonutrients that are incredibly beneficial to health. All three ingredients are in season now so you will have no difficulty obtaining them in your local grocery store. Remember to buy organic ingredients whenever you can.


Ingredients:
  • 3 large beets (thoroughly washed, leave the peel on if your beets are organic)
  • arils of 2 pomegranates 
  • 2 cups cranberries


Method:
  • Pass all the ingredients through a juicer. 
  • Pour into glasses and indulge in good company! 

~ How to De-seed Pomegranate ~ 

Wash the pomegranates. There are a few ways to de-seed a pomegranate. I use the water method because it is not only the cleanest one, it also saves most arils intact. To do this, prepare a large bowl of cold water. Cut away both ends of the pomegranate. Next, cut the fruit vertically into quarters. Gently break the fruit apart and submerge each chunk under water. Using your fingers gently remove the arils from the membranes that are holding them in place. You will notice that the arils sink down in water and the light, white membranes float on top. Remove the floating membranes. Strain the arils using a sieve or a colander and transfer them into a clean bowl. Remove any remaining membranes. Set aside.
