I want to dare you. Yes, you. Try this recipe, especially if you are not a fan of beetroot. Beets have the most exquisite color, yet they are not popular among men. It’s true that you have to get used to the earthy, ground flavor, but considering how healthy these little charms are, you should give it a try!
It has been linked with lowering blood pressure, boosting your stamina, fighting inflammation, and supporting your detoxification process. I’m a juice lover, and we have this habit at home of drinking fresh juice every single morning. My fridge is stocked with fresh fruit and veggies, mostly for juicing purposes. This tradition started when Rocco started to dislike vegetables, say what? Yes, a very common trend amongst toddlers around the age of two, do I hear the terrible two? The little fella refused anything green or veggie like, hence mommy had to find new ways to get those vitamins in his little body.
Guess what, from day one he loves fresh juices and not only the fruity ones but also the ‘advanced’ juices with beets, kale, and spinach in it. The secret is to balance the juice containing 60% of fruit and 40% of vegetables.
What can I say, even my two years old can appreciate the beetroot, what are you waiting for?
- 1 medium-sized beetroot, chopped in large chunks of 2 cm
- 1 large carrot, chopped in large chunks of 2 cm
- 3 apples, chopped
- thumb size fresh ginger
If you have a slow juicer, you will get the deep flavors of the vegetables and fruit. However, if you use a regular blender, you still get the juice to have to separate the pulp yourself using a nutbag/juice bag.
Use what options works best for you now with the kitchen appliances you have.
Wash and chop all your vegetables and fruits and if they are organic, you can leave the skin on.
Start juicing in a juicer or blend everything with 2 cups of water in a blender and use a nutbag or cheesecloth to separate the pulp from the juice.
Both ways will get you beautiful red beetroot juice to give your liver and kidneys a good cleanse.
