Should I blend or should I juice? – that seems to be the question recently…
Sometimes it’s tough to decide 😉
It’s been a while since I purchased my new Breville juicer to join my kitchen appliance team (and replace the old one, which was long-ago ready to leave its post), and we continue our mini Juice Reboot morning routine (or mini-detox-cleanse) with my husband (who is the main reason I bought the juicer in the first place, as I could not get him to drink enough smoothies, and I think may be more inclined to drink juices).
I have to say it’s been working really well so far, even though it does make the mornings a bit more busy and it takes a bit more time to get everyone out of the house. We’ll continue it for just a couple of days more, until my husband leaves on a trip, and then resume when he comes back in almost three weeks.
So today, we made this rich vibrant beetroot juice with carrots, celery and apple.
I also found a recipe that uses parsnips – which I have to say – I never juiced before. I didn’t have parsnips, so I’ll try it next time and let you know how it tastes. What I can tell you right now, that the combination below (without parsnip), creates a truly delicious nutrient packed juice.
Super Red Beta-Carrot Juice Recipe
Despite some of the ‘earthy’ ingredients, the apple, beetroot and carrots actually have a sweet flavor, which work together to create a delicious juice. Ginger and lemon will give this juice a nice tangy kick.
The use of carrots in the fight against cancer has been well-documented due to their high beta carotene content and the presence of the natural fungicide falcarinol. Beetroot is a great source of iron, which means it helps purify the blood. This juice is superb for helping to build the blood and is great for fighting infections –
juice just what the doctor ordered!
