I was recently asked if I had an energy boosting juice recipe. As I didn’t have one and was curious to try a new juice recipe too, I decided to try this one.
Beetroot is known as an anticancer vegetable and is packed with vitamins, minerals and powerful antioxidants. It is also good for detoxifying the body, reducing blood pressure and providing an energy boost.
Beetroot juice is quick and easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. Based on what I’ve read, it’s best not to drink beetroot juice pure as it’s so strong. Rather make the juice combined with other vegetables and fruit (as in the recipe below) to prevent any possible side effects.
Energy Boosting Beetroot Juice Ingredients
- 1 beetroot – you can include the green tops too. When rinsing the beetroot before juicing, be careful that you don’t rub the grit into the skin. If you dislike juices with an “earthy” taste then you can peel the beetroot beforehand.
- 6 celery stalks
- 1 green apple
- whole cucumber
Add the ingredients to the juicer and get juicing! These ingredients made about 900 ml of juice. Look at the lovely blend of green and maroon in the photo above. Stir the juice and pour it in a glass ready to drink 🙂
Freshly made beetroot juice at home definitely tastes different to the ones I’ve tasted in the shop. I’m guessing it’s because there must be a lot more apple juice added to it. At least this way, I know exactly how many vegetables and fruit are in my juice AND homemade is always best! I have to also admit that I did feel more perky after drinking my juice 😉
Have you drank or made beetroot juice before? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
