Beetroot Juice Recipes

The best tasting, healthy juice drinks I have ever made have been from some of my very old, favourite beetroot juice recipes – the combinations of which you would just never imagine.

fresh beetroot for your beet juice recipes

I first discovered the delights of drinking fresh beet juice combined with other fruits and vegetables when my Dad was growing it in his back garden.

I have to say that I didn’t particularly like the taste of beetroot (nor indeed beetroot juice) on its own, when it was still warm from the pressure cooker but it has a totally different taste and texture when added to orange juice for example and drinking it gives it a whole different angle.

The benefits of beet juice or beetroot juice, are profound. It is best known as a blood purifier and helps to replenish the body’s red blood cells, but is also known to be associated with reducing high blood pressure, cleansing the liver and kidneys, and increasing the presence of cancer destroying cells in the colon.


Beet juice is very rich in vitamins and minerals and there is definitely a rather distinct “earthy” taste to it. The greens can be juiced too to add an even greater health dimension.


The colour of the beetroot takes over any other juice and it has a wonderful rich deep red tone.  The flavour of beet juice has a very deep earthy flavour so the addition of a sweet fruit makes it more palletable, ie carrot or apple.


Preparation: Top and tail, scrub them well and cut to fit your juicer. Beetroot and beet juice drink
