This juice is super easy to make. You will need three simple ingredients. These are:
- Beet: The main highlight of this juice is beetroots. They are responsible for the beautiful bright red color of this juice. Beetroots are known for their many benefits and are loaded with nutrients and vitamins. Use fresh beets for this recipe. When buying beets, make sure you choose the ones that are firm to touch. They should have a smooth surface without any cuts or breaks. Always choose medium-sized beets as they are more tender than large ones.
- Apples: The next main ingredient for this juice is apples. You can choose any type of apple, from green apples to red ones. Make sure you choose fresh produce that is firm and without holes or brown patches. You can add apples with or without skin. But always remove the core and seeds. That’s because apple seeds contain cyanide naturally. Although it is in a very small amount, you should still avoid adding it to the juicer.

Ginger contains anti-inflammatory properties and also aids indigestion. You don’t have to peel it before adding it to the juicer. Simply scrub and wash and use.

How to make beet juice?
Making beet juice is super easy. You just need a good juicer and fruits. Start the juicer and push fruit pieces one by one by juicing beets, then ginger and apples in the end through the juicer’s feeding chute. You will get fresh juice in no more than 5 minutes.
Which juicer is best for making beet juice?
When you are out looking for juicers, you will find several types and technologies. As a result, making the decision can be very difficult and confusing. However, if you ask me, I can break down everything into simple information.
Now, there are two main types of juicers, i.e., centrifugal juicers and mastication /cold press juicers. Centrifugal juicers are the ones that over mother or grandmother used. They are usually high in wattage and super-duper fast. However, there is one drawback. Because they are very fast (we are talking about 10,000 to 14,000 RPM), the machine tends to heat up, resulting in warm juice. Warm juice means fewer nutrients, low shelf life, and more foam. However, several brands have come up with revolutionary technologies that retain nutrients in the juice.
In contrast, mastication technology is relatively a new concept. This technology imitates the mechanism of human teeth and their movements and functions. In other words, when we eat food, our teeth perform different functions in grinding, breaking, chewing, tearing, shredding, etc.; the specially designed blades do that at a slow sped which is usually 80 to 100 RPM. As a result, more nutrients are extracted from the fruits. Moreover, the juice is healthier, has more shelf life, and has less foam. Mastication juicers are also widely known as cold press juicers.
here are a few ingredients that you can pair with beets to get new exciting flavors.
- Cucumber: cucumber is refreshing. It is full of water and is a great ingredient that offers detox properties.
- Lemon juice: Lemon juice is tangy, citrusy, and loaded with vitamin C. it also has antioxidants and amazing detox properties.
