Juicing Recipe – ‘Cool Beet and Coriander’

Beet and Coriander Juice Drink

It’s not always easy to find uncooked beetroot, but it’s certainly worth the effort as the combination of apple and beetroot juice is as tasty as it is unusual. The distinctive flavour of celery blends well with the other ingredients, and the tartness of lime and cranberry offsets the sweetness of the beetroot. This is a perfect drink for all seasons.
