This brightly colored juice is a sweet combination of beets, carrots, apples, clementines, and ginger.

Note: Juice the ingredients in the order listed for maximum yield. Except for the clementines, there is no need to peel ingredients as long as you've scrubbed them well to remove any earthy bits. I sometimes trim the ends of beets and carrots if they look a little too gnarly. Use your power-judgment.
