That’s not red wine, in case you’re wondering. 😀 The deep red hue does kinda resemble that of red wine though. And although a mom’s probably entitled to some wine now and then, this just ain’t it. This is a healthy apple beetroot and carrot juice drink! I feel so healthy already just saying that out loud! Ok, so I’ve made beetroot soup before but because we didn’t like the taste of beetroot – yes, we’ve confirmed it, we really don’t like it – and I’m never making it again, so those beetroots in the fridge have to go somewhere other than the trash bin. So woohoo! I’ve decided to just juice them and save me all that trouble to make a soup nobody in the family likes.
It’s recommended to use a juicer instead of a blender for the juice but I only have a blender so I had to strain the juice after blending it, so erm, really, that was quite a bit of work there. Yeah, you got the hint. Use the juicer. Unless you really like red liquid on your hands. Thank God it doesn’t stain.
- 2 beetroots, skinned and chopped into chunks
- 1 large carrot, skinned and chopped into chunks
- 1-2 apples, skinned and chopped into chunks
- Some water to get the blender moving [if using the blender]
- Place the prepared fruit and vegetables into a juicer.
- If using a blender, you may need some water to get the blender to start blending properly. Adjust according to the needs of your blender. Strain the juice.
Also you may want to note that beetroot juice should be combined with other juices as consuming purely beetroot juice could cause temporary paralysis of your vocal chords, make you break out in hives, increase your heart rate, cause chills or a fever. I’m not sure if that’s true, but I’m not gonna try. 🙂 I don’t think I could stomach beetroot juice on its own anyway.
