Beet Blend Juice
There is a whole wide world out there of beet haters (ugh… that’s a strong word) but I am pleased to say I am not one of them! That’s all thanks to the way I was brought up in a small village in Brazil where all our medicine came from Mother Earth. Our Grandparents knew exactly what to give us when we needed a little boost. I will never forget the beet syrup I was given whenever I got sick. Because of that I acquired the taste buds not only for beets but pretty much everything that grows and is “green”.
Beets are actually sweet! Unfortunately most of us will take one look at a food we never tried (or seen) and let the “looks” judge it’s great potential for what could be an amazing new food. Let’s be honest, beets get a bad reputation, when they actually taste rather sweet. It’s beautiful red can be used as a natural food coloring. They are packed with nutrients such as magnesium, folate, potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants. There is no surprise that beets have a long list of health benefits such as; helps blood flow lowering blood pressure and it helps detoxify the body.
For those of you who would love to try beet in juice, this is a perfect combination of ingredients, which will help blend in the flavors so it’s not so “beetty” but will still enjoy all the healthy benefits of this amazing root vegetable PLUS other great veggies and fruit that are full of vitamins and nutrients to make you feel real good.
I was excited to offer this juice to some adults and children and they all approved it’s taste. The children did not complaint that there was no sugar (that’s how sweet this juice is!) and some of the other comments I got was “it has an earthy taste”… that’s great right!
I really hope this recipe will help you introduce beetroot into your diet. Beet isn’t just a new food on the spotlight, it’s actually really tasty and filled with great benefits to improve your health and the way you feel. I am a big advocate for healthy eating because I believe that what you eat is directly related to how you feel (and look) in the inside and out.
