Super Red Beta-Carrot Juice

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 apple (or use two for a sweeter juice)
  • 1 beetroot

  • 1/4 lemon (organic, unwaxed if possible, with the skin on)
  • a small slice of ginger (optional)

Instructions

  1. Juice the apples, beetroot, carrots, celery, parsnip and lemon (pack the lemon between the other produce).
  2. Pour into a pretty glass (I find that wine glasses work perfectly), sip and smile!

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!

    Hey! I just found you through Healthy Vegan Fridays. That picture lured me right in!! Congrats on your new juicer. It will change your life! Apple beet carrot is one of my favorite combos.
