Red earth – try our beetroot juice recipe

Do you love beetroot? I certainly do and am always looking out for new ways to eat or juice it! Beetroot makes a nutritious juice, it looks amazing and tastes great! In our new beetroot juice recipe, Red Earth, the earthy flavour from the beetroot, combines with the sweetness of the carrots and apples, and the zing and warmth from the ginger to deliver a comforting, warming beetroot juice, great to drink at any time of the day.

You will need to purchase RAW beetroot – cooked beetroot (even the vacuum packed stuff) will not work. And remember, you can use the leaves from the beetroot in your salad, or in a veggie stir fry!

Red Earth – beetroot juice recipe

Serves: 1
Calories: 157

Ingredients

1 apple
½ beetroot
2 carrots
2cm ginger
2cm unwaxed lemon

Tip! Beetroot can stain (it´s been used for centuries as a dye for clothes and other materials) so make sure you put your apron on before juicing!

Method

First, make sure all your fruit and veggies are clean, by giving them a wash beneath cold running water. Give the beetroot a good rub. Then put all the ingredients into your juicer. That´s it! Remember, to make it easier to clean, wash your juicer before drinking your juice.

Low fruit or no fruit beetroot juice option

If you prefer a pure vegetable juice, or want to reduce the amount of fruit sugars in this juice its really easy:

Vegetable only (no fruit):

Simply replace the apple with two or three extra carrots (or a piece of courgette if you want a more creamy version).
