A simple and healthy raw juice packed with goodness. Best to have any time of the day. Some beneficial substances in beet are lost when cooked so having beet raw provides maximum benefits. Raw beet has many desirable side effects. To list a few, it helps fight cancer, lowers blood pressure, and relaxes blood vessels. But don’t be surprised if your stool and urine turns red! 🙂
Beetroot – 1 small or 1/2 of a large one
Carrot – 1 medium
Apple – 1/2
Ginger – 1/2 piece
Mint leaves – 5-10
Rock salt/kala namak (optional) as needed
Water as needed
Preparation time: 7 mins
Making time: 5 mins
Makes 1 large glass
Peel and dice beetroot and carrot. Cut the apple into medium size pieces. Peel ginger.
I do not have a juicer and hence made it in the mixer. Place all ingredients in the mixer and process until liquefied. Pour the contents of the mixer into a large strainer and collect the strained juice in a vessel. Process the strained pulp once again in the mixer adding small quantities of water.
Repeat the straining process.
Enjoy fresh and healthy beet juice.
Manjusha, in spite of knowing better, I have never been big on fruits and nutritious veggies like beet. I have a feeling I might like this concoction. The addition of ginger piqued my interest. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will try and let you know how I liked it.
I hope you do try and like it too! 🙂 Thanks so much, Ashwini, for being a regular reader and for giving feedback. I truly appreciate it.
