Pretty Things + {Golden Goddess Juice} - HLTT3

I don't know about you, but I like pretty things.  I like pretty dishware. I like pretty mugs. I like pretty tables. I like pretty fabrics. I like Babycakes' pretty little body. I like pretty pizza. And I like pretty drinks.  I'm convinced part of the allure for creating new juices, smoothies, and cocktails for me (besides nutrition/health) is to photograph the vegetables and fruits that go inside and the final products!  They are all just so darn pretty!

Introducing this week's Healthy Living Thirsty Thursday:

{Golden Goddess Juice}

High in potassium, folic acid, iron, beta carotene, and Vitamins C and A, this juice delivers a heavy nutritional punch.  It features golden beets, golden delicious apples, golden apricots, and carrots.

What did I tell you?! Sooooo pretty!

I was inspired by two readers to make this juice:

a) Rachel - who suggested I use beets in my next HLTT juice.  Your wish is my command!  Though I threw a twist in there by using the "golden" variety!

b) Jessica - who emailed me about a juice she'd made recently with apricots (plus sweet potatoes and an orange). When I told her I had not EVER bought an apricot in my entire 31 years of life, she was shocked!! So when I saw them at the market this weekend, I decided that I MUST.TRY.THEM!

Adorned with citrus mint from my garden and the cutest Target straws you'll ever find, it's hard to decide whether this juice should win an award for beauty or health! Heck, let's just give it both :)

Questions:

  • What's your favorite way to use apricots?
  • Do you like pretty things? Dishware? Straws? Furniture?
