Beet Juicing

What’s the healthiest way to consume beetroots? You will get the maximum nutrients when consumed raw. So making a beet juice is ideal or a beetroot smoothie (the fiber is great for colon cleanse and liver detox).

For variety you could alternative this beet juice with cabbage juice or a green anti-inflammatory juice.

This beet juice recipe comprises a mix of beetroot juice, carrot juice, apple, ginger and lemon. This combination works in synergy and helps increase the bioavailability of multiple vitamins and nutrients that otherwise would be harder to assimilate.

Beet Juice Ingredients And Their Benefits

All ingredients should be fresh and raw (preferably organic):

  • Beets – provide some impressive health benefits, they are good sources of folate, potassium, vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants, as well as nitrates. (You can also add the green tops if you like, for extra nutrients).
  • Carrots – the simultaneous use of iron (present in beets) and vitamin A (present in carrots) seems to be more effective to prevent iron deficiency (anemia) than the use of these micronutrients alone.(Don’t use baby carrots, they are actually regular cut carrots, washed in a chlorine solution ment for longer storage).
  • Apple – is a good source of several antioxidants, including quercetin, catechin, and chlorogenic plus they are packed with Vitamin C, K, and potassium. Some of the antioxidants in apples may also slow down absorption of sugars present in the juice, which prevents any sugar spike.

  • Lemon (the juice only) – the Vitamin C form lemon juice will increase the bioavailability of iron present in beets.
  • Ginger – has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-diabetic properties as it able to lower blood sugar levels. Moreover ginger is a powerful anti-bacterial and antiviral agent which further improves the juice potency. Ginger will also help with nausea if you have a difficult time drinking vegetable juices. (Use peeled or unpeeled ginger, it’s up to you).

How To Make Beetroot Juice With A Blender

If you don’t want to invest in a good juicer, you can make the beetroot juice with a blender (I use my Ninja blender, because I prefer a glass pitcher not plastic), a nut milk bag and a tall container.

Here is how to make a beet juice without a juicer:

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients by wahing, peeling and cutting into smaller chunks for an easier blending.

How To Make Beet Juice With A Juicer

  • Start by washing and peeling your beets and other ingredients, if necessary.
  • Next, cut them into chunks that will fit comfortably inside your juicer.
  • Once your ingredients are ready, feed them through the juicer one at a time, starting with the thicker pieces first to help push out the juice. You can discard the pulp or save it to add to other recipes, such as beet carckers.
  • Finally, pour your fresh beet juice blend into a clean glass or bottle and enjoy!

Best Juicer For Beetroot

The best juicer for beetroot is the one which has the ability to extract the highest amounts of nutrients, preserve enzymes and with less oxidation in the juicing process. And for this, masticating juicers are often considered the best, as they yield a dryer pulp and more juice (they are also referred as cold press juicers or slow juicers). The vertical masticating juicers are probably the most convenient as they have a compact design and will occupy less space in your kitchen.

Tips For Making Juice With Beets

  1. Use fresh organic fruits and vegetables.
  2. The addition of apple and lemon cuts the edge of bitter veggies and makes the juice taste better but try not to add other fruits. Mixing fruits and veggies can cause gas, because fruit digests faster and uses different digestive enzymes. 
  3. Add some greens, the calcium in greens will get easily absorbed when combined with iron and Vitamin C present in the juice.
  4. For an easier juice prep, try to cut and peel your beets, carrots and apples in advance and store in a closed container. Proper storing will ensure they stay fresh longer.

Beet Juice FAQs

Are Beet Powder Capsules As Good As Beet Juice?

Most of those health benefits mentioned in studied were achieved while consuming beet juice and not powders. Since the nutritional benefits tend to decrease from oxidation and longer storage, the best way to consume beets is raw and fresh. Even if you choose to consume freeze dried beet powder (always check for supplement quality), some nutrients are lost during the freeze-drying process. But still it’s better than nothing.

Some of the potential benefits of regularly consuming beet juice include improved heart health, better blood sugar control, enhanced energy levels, and better overall digestive function. Additionally, beet juice may help improve skin health, reduce inflammation, and support weight loss efforts.

The recommended amount of beet juice that you should consume on a daily basis will vary depending on your individual health and fitness goals. In general, it is recommended that adults drink no more 1-2 cups of beet juice per day on its own.

How much beet juice is safe?

  • inch ginger - washed, peeled
  • 1/2 lemon - the juice

Instructions
 

Prepare the Ingredients

  • Wash and peel (you can leave the skin if you want), cut into smaller chunks for an easier blending.

Make The Beetroot Juice

  • Place all ingredients in the blender (I use my Ninja blender) with some water (just enough to help blend -about 3/4 – 1 cup), squeeze the lemon juice, cover and start your blender.
  • Place the nut milk bag on the top of a container and pour the juice through it. Squeeze with your hands as much as you can until you get all the juice out.
    Enjoy immediately, the longer the beet juice sits the faster it looses the nutrients.

Notes

The recipe makes about 20 oz (600ml) of beetroot juice (actually it’s a blend of juice and water). If you plan to drink the juice later, store it in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator and consume within one day not later.
What’s the best time to drinks beet juice: first thing in the morning 1.5 hours before breakfast or around 5pm. According to body’s natural rhythm that’s the time when the blood delivers useable nutrients to all tissues.

I used This very combination but instead of apples (didn’t have on hand) I used celery. I also Used more ginger than the recipe so it was a bit (hot) but It was very good! I’m new to juicing and love to use natural ways to stay healthy, especially during these times. I will Be taking a shot a few times a day to stay healthy during the winter season!

I'm glad you found your own alternatives, celery is another great vegetable for juicing... and experimenting is a great way of finding your own preferences in taste.
