As the name suggests, Beet & Orange Juice Morning Sunrise is sort of like a tequila sunrise. Just kidding! It’s nothing like a tequila sunrise except for the orange juice and the pretty colors in your glass! I think you’ll love this morning juice to start your day.
One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday morning is head out to a good spot for breakfast. Somewhere casual and somewhere that has the goods that I’m craving!
Not long ago on one of those delicious outings, I came across a juice drink on the menu at a spot called First Watch. It had beet juice and orange juice and turmeric in it, and I wanted to give it a try. It was really good, and I’ve wanted to recreate it ever since.
I finally got around to trying my own version at home, and the results were delicious! I gave it a name, and now I’m drinking it on the regular.
Beet & Orange Juice Morning Sunrise is a healthy way to start your day. Not only that, but the juices bring colorful layers to the table, and the few additional ingredients added are good for you, too. And what goes better with breakfast than juice?
You’ve probably heard a lot about turmeric lately and its potential health benefits, like how it may help delay the onset of diabetes, help as an antioxidant in the body, and help fight inflammation. Well, I’ve added a pinch to this drink to enjoy.
I’m no nutritional or medical expert, but I’ve done some reading on it and I think a pinch every now and again in my diet is a good thing. You be the judge for yourself.
Lately I’ve found myself saying, “Welcome to my life, beet juice!” Beets are good for you, too, and I love them not only for their pretty color, but for the bit of tartness the juice brings to this drink.
If you like beets like I like beets, you really should try a few of my beet-based recipes: Roasted Beet Hummus makes a pretty appetizer for parties, or a great addition to your lunch routine served with veggies for dipping.
For a fun snack with some crunch, try Baked Beet Chips with Blue Cheese Dip. I’ve even added beet to dessert! And these Chocolate Beet Donuts with Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting are seriously delicious!
Perhaps this drink could include tequila to turn it into a happy hour cocktail, but until then, I’m going to enjoy Beet & Orange Juice Morning Sunrise just the way I’ve made it, and in the a.m.! Let me know if you try my version, and how you like it!
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup beet juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon agave nectar (you could also use honey or maple syrup to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon dried turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon dried ginger
- Ice (optional)
- Add the orange juice, lemon juice, agave nectar, turmeric, and ginger to a bowl and whisk to combine.
- Add a handful of ice (if using) to a 12-ounce glass, then pour in the orange juice mixture.
- Gently pour the beet juice over the top of the orange juice mixture to create pretty streaks of color in the glass.
- Stir and enjoy.
This drink was inspired by a drink I had with breakfast at a local restaurant, First Watch.
