When beetroots are in season, this is one of my favourite juices. If you can find purple kale leaves they work brilliantly in this. The key with juicing is to keep your colours within the same family (eg in this instance, purple). Otherwise you'll end up with brown juice - not too appealing.
If you can't find purple kale, then green kale will work just as well (the beetroot will overpower the green colour), or just skip that ingredient and use the rest. The ginger and lemon give this a wonderful warming kick too.

4 purple kale leaves
1/4 lemon (skin removed) OR 1/2 lime
Chop your ingredients into small pieces and feed them into your slow juicer, then add the water at the end to push through the remaining produce. Add ice then drink straight away, or put in a sealed jar filled to the top, and drink within 24 hours.

What do you get when you combine dates with maca…? Caramel! But not the sickly kind - the earthy, malty, bear hug kind, that feels like you’ve just put on a big woollen jumper. These delicious mugs of goodness are my new favourite beverage and, now that we’re nearing mid-winter, they’re totally needed too.
Two words. Burger Rings. But in a kale chip! The smoky BBQ tomato coating on these is everything you loved about those orange little rings, without the nasties, and a host of health benefits too.
