Even adults can get some not-so-adult cravings. And just because a candy is vegan does not mean it is healthy. Certain food colorings (especially red and yellow) have been linked to ADHD. Processed sugar can rot your teeth and lead to overgrowth of yeasts, molds, and fungus inside the body. But there is always nature's candy!
Sometimes there is a certain flavor that you just can't get by eating fruit whole, but if you own a juicer you are able to become a culinary Willy Wonka! Most candy flavors got their inspiration from fruit. Jackfruit is responsible for inspiring a certain famous gum... just try some fresh and guess which kind!
In this recipe I was inspired by a certain red licorice rope we are all familiar with. This is a great way to get kids into juicing! Ask them their favorite fruity candy and get creative with your interpretations!
1 small fennel bulb with stalks
3 red delicious apples (including skins and cores)
1 small beet (standard purplish color, but if red beets are available even better for color)
1 small handful of red grapes
1 1/2 inch cube of ginger
In a juicer combine all ingredients. Dilute with water to desired potency. Enjoy!
