Beta Blast Juice Recipe | Cantaloupe, Carrot, Apricot
Well what do you know, I found some apricots. If you’re keeping up and read my last article you may remember I substituted nectarines for apricots. So, I decided to go back and do the recipe the way it is in The Juicing Bible. The Beta Blast Juice recipe is an awesome fresh fruit juice for people looking to infuse their body with beta-carotene.
Fresh Juice: Beta Blast Juice Recipe
- 3 carrots
- 2 fresh apricots, pitted
- 1/4 cantaloupe, peeled and with seeds
The apricot doesn’t juice well in my Omega J8004 juicer, so I had to go slow and follow each one with a carrot. Slow and easy with this one and let the juicer run to get all of the apricot juice.
This is a delicious recipe, easy to make and full of beta-carotene. Juice and enjoy!
UPDATE: Tips for Picking Apricots
1 .Buy fresh. Opt for in-season apricots — late spring through the summer — which are grown in the U.S. Out-of-season (winter) apricots have to get shipped from other countries and, to make the long journey, these apricots have to be picked when they’re under-ripe, which means they’re more likely to contain less flavor.
2. Choose carefully. Examine each apricot for plumpness and a golden, or orange-red, color. Avoid apricots that are green or pale yellow, or that are bruised or shriveled.
3. Give them a sniff. An apricot that has flavor also has a sweet and ready fragrance.
