Energizing Beetroot, Cucumber and Ginger Juice

I don’t know about anyone else but my body is really feeling the changing of the seasons. It’s taking me some time to adjust to the grey, rainy days and the colder temperatures so I’m trying to give my body all the support I can to stay healthy and energetic instead of fluey and coldy! And this cleansing beetroot, cucumber and ginger juice is the perfect answer. It’s such an easy thing to add into your diet as it takes five minutes to make, the ingredients are really easy to find and it tastes amazing any time of the day. Each sip is so wonderfully soothing and revitalising, I swear I can feel my cells dancing with happiness as they soak up all the nutrients! Juicing is the best way to feed your cells goodness too as it removes the fibre from the fruits and vegetables, which means that all the vitamins, minerals and enzymes are absorbed straight into the bloodstream much quicker and in much more highly concentrated doses than if you ate the equivalent amount. Plus juicing gives your digestive system a break too, which is always nice! So a juice really acts as the perfect pick-me-up when you’re feeling tired. Of course this recipe is totally delicious too, and despite being a predominantly vegetable juice it’s still nicely sweet thanks to the apple and carrots, which are complemented by a lovely gingery kick. The colour is pretty incredible too, I swear that alone is enough to boost your mood! Beets are also in season at the moment, which means you can buy them in inexpensive abundance from your local farmers market, or even pick them yourself – which is so fun.

So why drink beets? Beets are magical, they are true super foods and something we should all be eating more of! Beets are a great source of iron, potassium, magnesium, folic acid and vitamins A, C and B6, as well as being packed with anti-oxidants. All the iron in beetroot too is especially good for energy and fatigue fighting too as it allows your body to carry more oxygen to all the cells, allowing them to function more efficiently. This is complemented by all the chlorophyll you’ll be taking in from the cucumber and celery, which works to alkalinise your body, oxygenate your blood, flush out stored toxins, boost the immune system and reduce internal inflammation. While the carrots give you incredible amounts of immune-boosting vitamin A, the ginger calms and soothes the digestive system and the apple provides more anti-oxidants as well as anti-inflamatory goodness. 

 Serves 1

– 1 beetroot

– 1 cucumber

– 2 sticks of celery

– 3 carrots

– 1 red apple

– an inch of ginger

The only preparation you need to do is to chop the leaves off the beetroot and peel away the outer layer of dirt and thicker skin, then chop the leaves off the celery. Once this is done simply put everything through the juicer, stir, sip and enjoy!

    Did you notice any positive change in your health, after consuming this?

  • ellawoodward

    I definitely notice that I feel good from juicing for sure!

  • Rebecca Emerson

    Just starting my food journey with you, and wondering how the juices turn out if just blended? I don’t yet have a juicer, just a smoothie maker. Thanks!

  • Ghislaineislief

    Hey! I’ve just made this and it’s not red at all! It’s more a yellow brown haha. How come?

  • ellawoodward

    It really depends on the vegetables – it can really vary!

    • Razi

      this juice is good for kidney patients or not???

  • ellawoodward

    You can juice in a blender but I prefer to stick with smoothies in my blender and juices from the juicer!

  • Linda

    can I use beetroot in the jars for the smoothie?

  • ellawoodward

    Hey Linda, it won’t obviously be fresh and make sure you rinse it properly in case it’s stored in a brine or vinegar solution x

  • ellawoodward

    I’m sorry but I am not qualified to answer this but I think it is good for everyone really!

    Hi Ella,

    Just wondering if you can use a Nutribullet instead of a juicer? And if so should I modify the quantity of ingredients?

    Thanks

    • ellawoodward

      Hi, a Nutribullet is actually a blender so it won’t juice the liquid part of the vegetables, it’ll just blend them with the solids. X

  • Mee Alys

  • ellawoodward

    Hi, this recipe serves 1 person and you can drink it any time of the day! X

    • Mee Alys

      Hey thanks for the reply
      does it works the same if i do the salad of all these things ? i cant manage to make juice . Please reply soon

  • Estelle

    Hi Ella, i’m french…so sorry for my english…Is it possible to put cooked beetroots ?

  • ellawoodward

    Hi Estelle, you can’t juice cooked beetroot, it’s much better to juice them raw! X

  • ellawoodward

    I guess you are still getting all the name nutrients from the vegetables, just in a different way so if juicing is not your thing then a salad would work great! X

  • Gregory

    Hey Ella, Im a hardworking, hard playing musician, 67 y.o. And I thought I was getting old until I started juicing…..!
    I swear, I feel 25 years younger in just a week, and strangely enough, I
    don’t seem to get into my groove of a day until I juice ! What a wonderful addiction haha.
