Detox Beet Juice: Ingredients
Some of the top foods to detox the body includes beets, ginger, lemon, apple, turmeric, chard, apple cider vinegar (used in this apple cider vinegar drink), spinach or other leafy greens and herbs, spirulina, and chlorella, to name a few. This beet juice recipe uses a few of them.
The first step to making any juice recipe is to make sure the ingredients are fresh. I suggest buying the produce within a day or two of using. Let’s dive into the healthy ingredients of this cleansing beet juice recipe!
Apple: I am a big believer in an apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apples are great for digestion and like ginger, help to stimulate the digestive tract and rid toxins from the liver. Is if full of antioxidants and vitamin C to help build the immune system and ward off disease.
Carrots: Carrots are rich in beta carotene, fiber, vitamin D1, potassium and have high amounts of antioxidants. They are linked to improving eyesight and lowering cholesterol. They add a delicious amount of fiber and sweetness to beet juice.
Ginger: Ginger is a root similar to turmeric and has been used for thousands of years as an anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant. It is incredible to consume for detoxification and is well known to be used in detox recipes to cleanse the body! It stimulates digestion and circulation which assists to rid the body of toxins. Ginger is also excellent mixed with pineapple in this pineapple juice recipe to supercharge digestion.
Lemon: Lemons are high in vitamin C and are well known for building the immune system and naturally healing a cold and cough when mixed with honey. Lemons also support hearth health, weight control, aging skin, and the digestive system [source]. It adds a punch of flavor this detoxing bee juice recipe that brings out carrots and beets natural sweetness.
Coconut Water: Coconut water is the body’s most beloved form hydration thanks to the high amounts of potassium it contains, which helps with cramping. It is also rich in magnesium and adds a touch of natural sweetness to beet juice, other juices such as green detox juice and in smoothies.
Parsley: Fantastic for improving digestion!
Beets: The star of the show!
Health benefits of beet root
Beets: Beets (also called beetroot) happen to be a superfood to detox, reduce inflammation, have anti-cancer properties, lower blood pressure and are known to help decrease anxiety and depression [source]! It detoxes the body starting with cleansing the blood and keeps the body pure through reducing oxidation stress and free radicals. Beets also protect the human body against cardiovascular diseases by reducing the oxidative effect of those free radicals on lipids. Beets are rich in antioxidants and nutrients such as folate, pectin fiber, iron, and pectin- which is a natural blood cleanser and they also [source].

How to make homemade beet juice
USE A JUICER OR VITAMIX BLENDER
For this ultra-fabulous detox drink, I recommend using a juicer or blender. Personally, I use my vitamix constantly and love it. It purees foods like no other blender.
If using a juicer, you can can skip the coconut water as an option. It is used in the blender to help it mix and add nutrients.
In a juicer, add apple (with core removed and halved), beets (with skins removed and stems removed), carrots (peeled and stem removed), ginger (with skin removed), a whole lemon (slice off ends first and cut off all of the skin and rind), and coconut water. The juicer will discard the unnecessary parts. Yay!!!
If you do not have a juicer a REALLY GOOD blender is needed, aka, Vitamix. For this version add apple (with core removed and halved), beets (with skins removed and stems removed), carrots (peeled and stem removed), ginger (with skin removed), a whole lemon (slice off ends first and cut off all of the skin and rind), and coconut water.
Blend until smooth. Then use a nut bag or mesh bag and separate the grindy fibrous parts from the liquid. Use a funnel to pour into two glasses, or one large glass.
How many servings does this beet juice recipe make?
It makes two servings but sometimes I enjoy it all by myself! This glass filled was all mine after the photos😊.
Can I add spinach to the juice?
Spinach is a fabulous way to detox. If you want more nutrients you can add a small handful of either spinach, chard, mint or parsley to the mix.
Are there any side effects from drinking beet juice?
No harm to your body, but yes, you may experience this: If you are not familiar with beets, they excrete lots of red which can dye skin, clothes, furniture and… bowel movements. Yes, I said it. Do not be alarmed if stools are discolored red, this is from the beets. Stools may also be looser as they remove toxins from the body.
How often should I drink this detox drink?
Once a day is enough.
How to store beet juice
This is best stored in the refrigerator and consumed within 1 hour.

Should the beets be cooked first?
Danielle Fahrenkrug says
Hi Karen! The beets do not need cooking, just add them raw. If using a juicer you can leave the skin on, just wash them well as the juicer separates it. If using a blender remove the skin first with a vegetable peeler.
