Golden Hour Juice from Cook. Heal. Go Vegan! by Bailey Ruskus

This golden hour juice recipe is packed with ingredients to make your skin glow and strengthen your immune system.

  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


  • 1/2 medium pineapple, coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium golden beets, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 3 tbsp (30 g) coarsely chopped fresh turmeric
  • 3 tbsp (30 g) coarsely chopped fresh ginger
  • 5 large carrots, finely chopped
  • 4 large oranges, peeled
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup (240 ml) water (if blending)


  1. In your juicer, combine the pineapple, beets, turmeric, ginger, carrots, and oranges. Juice them according to the juicer’s instructions. Transfer the juice to a glass, add the lemon juice and serve the golden juice.
  2. If you don’t have a juicer, combine the pineapple, beets, turmeric, ginger, carrots, oranges, lemon juice and water in a high-powered blender. Blend the ingredients until everything is smooth and combined. Pour the mixture through a nut-milk straining bag over a large bowl, then strain out the juice by squeezing the contents in the bag with your hands. You might want to wear gloves to avoid staining your hands with turmeric. 
  3. I love pouring this juice in a wine glass with some ice to complete the golden hour vibe!


I love to meal-prep this juice on Monday, so that I have enough to last for a few days. It’s a great energy booster and will last for about 48 hours in your fridge. Avoid giving this pulp to your pup, as the ginger and pineapple are too much for canine systems. 

Yields 2 (20-oz [591-ml]) servings
