Boost yourself with beautiful beetroot juice

I always get tempted to call this vitamins in a jar, which you could easily argue that it is! Fresh, vitamin boosted, beautiful juice which can only make even the most vegetable scared soul wanna smile and burst into laughter. Or at least, that’s what I tell myself. It’s amazing how much the beetroots contribute to this juice; their lovely color, the high level of vitamin B and C and not to forget the unique flavor and round sweetness, which is perfectly balanced with the sour lemons and sharp, strong twist from the fresh ginger. Apples and carrots make a nice base for the juice since they are both sweet, fresh, really juicy and full of vitamins as well.

Freshly squeezed juice is a wonderful drink, all years around. You can easily vary it, and use all sorts of vegetables and fruits. A rule of thumb is to use 80% vegetables and 20% fruit in order to get a perfectly, balanced sweetness and avoid too much fructose (natural sugar from the fruit). Lemon/lime, ginger and fennel are some of the taste boosters you can add to turn different juices in a certain direction. Avocado or frozen berries can be blended in some juices afterwards to give the juice more structure and make it more creamy.

Remember that even though ‘green’ juice is healthy and nutritious, you drink almost the same amount of energy as the pieces of fruit and vegetables you add to the juice, and 2,5 carrots, 1-2 beets and 1 apple would not be considered a snack as much as a light meal. But what a great meal!!

An important tip; always buy organic fruit and vegetables to use for your juice making. This way you can avoid peeling your fruit and vegetables and instead use all of their tasty parts + get use of all those lovely vitamins placed just beneath their peel, win/win right?

    beautiful clicks! the tips about making the juices are really helpful …..great recipe.

  2. I love beets and I cook a lot with them. Too bad most people don’t seem to like them, my husband doesn’t, for instance. :( Your beetroot juice looks very tasty, I will definitely try it.

    Hello,

    Just getting into Juicing and have splashed out on a new Sage Nutri Juicer, 1200 Watt.
    So far so good but I cant find anything about if you can use cooked beetroot (sealed packs you can buy)
    Or has the nutritional value vastly decreased ?

    Thanks for your help,

    Steve

      Hi Steve. Nope I would not used cooked beets, they are very different from raw. But they are great in cakes and smoothies :)
