Drinking beet juice has been found to be linked to a lot of health benefits, but let’s get real, beet juice isn’t really a delicious drink.

Tips & Tricks to Nail the Beet Juice Recipe
Ready to give this sweet beet juice recipe a try? Here are some tips and tricks you might want to take note of.
- To add a bit of earthy flavor to the beet juice, you can add a small piece of ginger into the mix as well. Ginger is actually great, not just because it makes beet juice good, but also packs in some powerful anti-inflammatory action.
- A little squeeze of lemon juice can also be a great addition to your fresh beetroot juice.
- I also love the idea of adding some fresh mint leaves into the mix.
- To add some extra nutrition to this root vegetable juice, you can also add some beet greens or other leafy greens of your choice.
- If you don’t have oranges or orange juice that the recipe calls for, apple juice can do the trick. In fact, green apple juice can be a great addition to this beet juice recipe.
- You’re likely to find some juice pulp leftover during the juicing process- even if you’re using a high speed blender or one of those fancy centrifugal juicers. I would recommend keeping it in.
- If you want to remove the beet pulp leftover from juicing beets, you can strain it using a fine mesh strainer or a nut milk bag.
- You can also try adding other vegetables of your choice into this classic beet juice recipe.
How Do I Store the Beetroot Juice?
Just like most of other fresh juice recipes, this beet juice is best made and consumed fresh. Storing it for longer than a few hours isn’t recommended.
If you must, just transfer the juice to an airtight container and refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve it.
