1 small red Beetroot
1 large Apple (or 2 small apples)
2 Celery stalks
1-2 Carrots
1/2 Lemon or Lime
1/2 inch small piece of Ginger, peeled

Tips and Variations:

  • Choose a small and firm beetroot. Also, we used sweet apple but you can use any type of apple of your choice.
  • 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.

I am a nurse working in Rwanda with women who are HIV positive.

Do you know if the women in a village here can make beet juice without a blender or processor? If the beets are cooked does it reduce the benefit a lot? They really want to do this.

Response: Hi Mary, Thank you for looking after the womens. Beet juise can be made without blender or processor by shredding the beets and squeezing it. However, it will require lot of effort. If you steam cook the beets, it will not reduce its benefits.

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.
