 a.k.a. beet apple juice


Not gonna lie, I settled on mixing my beet juice powder with apple juice just so I could call it beetlejuice. And well, I already had apple juice in the fridge for buttered rum and mulled wine. Now I can use my apple juice for good.

I also settled on Activz Organic Whole Food Beet Powder for my beet juice powder, I first tried Eclectic Institute Beet Juice POW-der and that was fine too, but you can see it comes in a like a vitamin jar and I used that up in a second. I'm drinking this before every workout, I need more like a pound of powder that I can keep in the fridge and the Activz fits that bill.

I'm giving creatine a try again and have been throwing that in, too. Creatine doesn't dissolve all that well in anything, this has been a good place to hide it.

1/2 cup apple juice
1 Tbsp beet juice powder
—the Activz scoop I think is about a tablespoon
1 tsp creatine, obviously optional

I use the small cup that came with my rocket blender—pour in the apple juice first, then scoop in the beet juice powder and the creatine. Otherwise, the powders get stuck on the bottom on the cup and don't blend. Screw on the cap, blend and drink 2-3 hours before your workout for best results. (That's for the beet, the creatine you just take every day whenever and however it's convenient.)

You don't actually have to blend these in a blender, you can also just put them in a jar with a lid and shake the hell out of them. Or I suppose in a glass and stir them with a spoon.
