Morning Meditation Juice

This Morning Meditation Juice was inspired by the beverage served at First Watch restaurant. It’s way easier than their version though and it’s super delicious – you don’t even need a juicer. Plus, it gives me a huge energy boost after I drink it which is always a great thing!

Y’all, I can’t even believe that I’m about to type this…

But….

I now drink beet juice.

There. I said it. And I can’t even believe it. Stay with me for a minute here… I promise that the way I drink it actually tastes good! And it’s SUPER good for you. Might even turn you into a super hero 😉

I started getting this drink called the Morning Meditation Juice at First Watch restaurant. It contains ginger, turmeric, orange juice, & beet juice. Not only is it really pretty but it tastes good and it works better for me than a cup of coffee or an energy drink. When they make theirs, they juice the turmeric & the ginger. When I started making my own version at home, I opted for using the turmeric and ginger from my spice cabinet and I have to say that I love it. Plus it’s really easy.

Sometimes I add ginger, but sometimes I don’t. I’m not a huge ginger person, so most the time I leave it out. I do use turmeric powder (I go for the organic) and I mix it in with my orange juice before I add the beet juice.

First Watch also adds agave nectar, but I’m not really a fan of it. I buy the Simply Orange Orange Juice and I find it to be sweet enough, and don’t need the addition of any sweetener.

When you pour in the beet juice, do it really slowly for a pretty layered effect.
