Beet juice is so nutritious! Beetroot is an incredible vegetable. The benefits of beets are numerous! Beets are full of nitrates, which allow your blood vessels to open up for increased blood flow. Beets also contain vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, and iron.
Here are some of our favorite beet juice recipes!
- 2 beets, scrubbed clean and tops trimmed
- 1 medium seedless cucumber
- 1-inch piece fresh ginger, scrubbed clean
- 1 medium lemon
Chop the beets, cucumber, and ginger into thin pieces small enough to easily go through the juicer.
Cut away the yellow peel from the lemon, leaving most of the white pith and lemon flesh. Cut into slices and remove any seeds.
Reserve about half of the lemon. Turn the juicer on and push everything through, alternating between the beets and the softer cucumber and lemon.
When everything but the reserved lemon has been juiced, stir the juice and taste for tartness.
Add the remaining lemon if you feel it can take it. Or if the beet juice is too tart, consider adding a couple scrubbed unpeeled carrots or a small cored apple. Serve over ice.
- 2 medium beets
- 1 apple of your choice
- 3 medium carrots, peeled
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
Wash and chop the vegetables and fruits in small pieces.
Juice the beets, then the apples, then the carrots. Stir in the chia seeds and let soak for 5 minutes. Serve over ice.
Do you have a juicer? If you don’t, that’s okay! You can make beet juice with a high-powered blender and mesh strainer or cheesecloth. This beet juice recipe doesn’t require a juicer—you can make it with your blender!
