Day 4 of the heart healthy juice party with Omega Juicers is here!
With this juice I wanted to capture the essence of carrot cake in a juice. Since cinnamon is so good for cardiovascular health, I knew I wanted to include it. And, since sweet potatoes have been named one of the 40 most powerful foods for heart health, I had to get them in there too. And of course the beets, lemon and carrots are amazing for heart health. And y'all already know that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, so this juice is CLEARLY a super duper healthy one.
While this juice may not have ended up tasting *exactly* like carrot cake, you won't mind, because it's still so refreshingly yummy, and the cinnamon really does give it a nice kick. If you don't like how sweet it is, you can always either add more lemon, or leave out a carrot or the apple. Play around with the combo until it's just right for your tastebuds!
