Beet kvass recipe
Beet kvass is easy to make but here are a few tips before you get started.
A few helpful tips:
Your water needs to be pure and chemical-free so make sure you use bottled water or filtered water.
Don’t shred the beets as it can cause too much sugar to be released. Chop the beets into 1 to 2-inch pieces.
Beets should be organic. If you don’t use organic beets make sure you wash them thoroughly and peel them. While the peel can act as a barrier that slows pesticide absorption, some pesticides can penetrate deep into the beet.
Remember, the more whole foods, organic you eat, the better off you will be!
The best way to add this super drink to your diet is to have 1/4 cup with mineral water before and during meals.
