Why We Love This Fall Harvest Juice Recipe
This fresh juice highlights the best superfoods that fall and winter have to offer, with fresh apple juice, beetroot, sweet potato, daikon and fresh ginger.
The earthiness of the root vegetables is balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the apples and the added fall spices.
Here’s what Chef Ari had to say about his creation:
“In this blend, we are featuring root vegetables that are typically in season fall through winter. The earthiness of the root vegetables is balanced with the sweetness of the red apple and sweet potato. An element of spice is added with the cinnamon and ginger, and a pop of citrus is present from the lemon.”
