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.

Super Red Beta-Carrot Juice


  • 1 apple (or use two for a sweeter juice)
  • 1 beetroot
  • 2 small carrots
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 1 small parsnip (optional)
  • 1/4 lemon (organic, unwaxed if possible, with the skin on)
  • a small slice of ginger (optional)


  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!
