  • Pure beetroot juice is very strong; always mix it with some other fruit or vegetable juice to potentially avoid any side effects.
  • If you are using organic veggies and fruits, don’t peel them.
Taste: Sweet and refreshing
Serving Ideas: Serve it in the breakfast to get a refreshing and healthy change from routine apple and orange juices. It helps lower high blood pressure and it’s a recommended drink for high BP patients. Drink it regularly to prevent any cardiovascular problems from occurring.

How long will the beetroot drink keep in the fridge as I made a small amount but seem to have quite a lot - also it is very thick can I water down with water? Many thanks for any advice.

Response: Yes Denise, you can add water in the juice to dilute it. It's always best to consume fresh juice immediately after juicing, however if it's not possible, you can keep in the refrigerator for a day.
