Super Vitamin Drink: Apple Beetroot Carrot Juice Recipe

Dear  Foodies Readers,



My juice obsession continues! After all how can you not turn into a bit of a juice addict??

There are SOOO many benefits(outlined later). Personally, I’m hooked because of the noticeably brighter glowing complexion, more energy for my workouts, and detoxification health benefits!  


You start craving the refreshed feeling you get after drinking these vitamin and antioxidant rich drinks- its hard to describe unless you’ve experienced it for yourself. What’s more you get quite a few of your 5 a day fruits and veggies in one go. 


If you are a morning person have this or the green juice for breakfast kickstart your day.  My family refers to this simply as red juice or beet juice due to its bright red colour- you could call it ABC juice if you are in to acronyms. 🙂


This juice is best made with a juicer.

For those of you without a juicer I will posting modified blender recipe soon- but it will be for a beet smoothie. 

So without further ado, here’s the recipe: 


A glass of Apple carrot beet juice on a tray

Apple Beetroot Carrot Ginger Juice Recipe

Serving size:1 small glass

Ingredients


1 red apple cored and quartered
1 beetroot peeled and halved
1 carrot lightly peeled if necessary and halved
1 inch ginger peeled (optional) I like the kick the ginger adds, if you don’t you can leave it out.

Method:

1.Place ingredients one by one in juicer, and Juice away.
2.Serve with ice. Drink immediately!

Easy, healthy and tasty what more can you want?

Personally, I like the taste of red juice more than the green juice, and as my family and friends have noted I’m partial to red food and red objects..that might have something to do with it and I’m a fan of beets whereas not a great fan of spinach. 

Beets are the sweetest of all the veggies as in their sugar content is the highest which makes it a rather pleasantly sweet tasting juice. Beets are also are chock full of other goodness see below.

Benefits of beet juice

  • Helps treat acne and other skin problems caused by inflammation and toxins.
  • Increases stamina if consumed before a workout
  • Beets contain betalain which is a  powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, fungicidal and aid in detoxification
  • Cooked  or fermented beet (like pickled beet), contain a lower amount of healthful nutrients for blood pressure benefits will decrease. By juicing, you are going to get 100% of the phytonutrients (plant chemicals).
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Good source of nitrates, folate, vitamin A, C,  fiber and manganese
  • Relieves constipation
  • Research that indicates that betalain may help fight cancer.
  • Beets contain oxalic acid which dissolves inorganic(bad) calcium deposits in the body which  cause heart-disease, a narrowing of the arteries and arthritis.


Warning:If you have never eaten beets before try a small amount to ensure you are not allergic to them.
