So in the juice (3 cups) I just made there is… (It’s like 2 big glasses)

– 28 % Daily Value (DV) of potassium,

– 187 % DV of Vitamin C,

– 36 % DV of iron

– 8% DV of Calcium

and much more.

I love beets.. A LOT!!!!!! And I love pineapple a lot too, so hey it’s like the perfect combination for me, hahaha! During our honeymoon in the dry region of Los Cabos, Mexico in 2012, I used to drink plenty of beet-pineapple juice (I got pregnant with my son at the same time, haha! Just the perfect holiday), so drinking that juice reminds me of these great memories. Mmmm that juice was delicious!!!

I peeled the beets since I bought them without the leaves and their skin were kind of dry.. but next time I’ll use beets with their greens (that I will juice too)

Directions
