In addition to being healthy and delicious, beetroot juice is also a great way to introduce different vegetables into a child's diet using a simple solution in a short prep time. Beet juice has an earthy taste but is also sweet, so it is a pleasant flavor for all the family to enjoy. Beetroot juice made at home is also free from any preservatives or additives that not only degrade the flavor but also potentially reduce the healthy benefits.
Finally, growing beetroot at home is really easy and so you can create a constant cheap supply to continue experimenting with lots of different beet juice recipes.
Beetroot juice is great as it is, but it can also be flavored with different fruits, vegetables or flavorings. For example, to make a zesty beetroot juice, you could add fruits such as apple and lemon. To add a bit more zing, you could add lemon and ginger. For a more savoury flavor, you could add other ingredients such as carrots or any other vegetable to make the base for a soup.
The type of beet you use is purely down to choice. You can use yellow beets, red beets, orange beets or striped beets, each adding their own unique flavor to your juice recipe. As with any fresh juice, it's best to use the freshest beets that you can use, so that the juice tastes at its best and is at its optimum for your health.
For one serving, you are going to need around 4 small beets or 2 large beets. Allowance should also be made for any other ingredients which may bulk out the juice, so bear that in mind when thinking about quantities.
There are many variations and numerous healthy recipes on offer to blend beetroot juice. Here is a simple list of raw ingredients and a beet juice recipe to make a great starter juice:
Peel and chop. As the instruction states, simply peel the skin and chop your beet and apples to approximately 1 inch thick, depending on the size of your blender. At the same time, peel the skin off the lemon and the ginger.
Blend the ingredients in your blender. Add the apples, beet, lemon, fresh ginger root, and water into a blender and blend until smooth.
Strain the blended pulp. Place a cheesecloth or even a sieve over the top of a bowl and slowly pour the juice from the blender into the bowl. If using a cheesecloth, squeeze out the remaining juice from the pulp.
Serve drink immediately. Pour into a glass and serve immediately, over ice if desired.
It's best to use juices straight away, as this is when they have the best taste and freshest flavor. Homemade juice will last for around 6-12 hours outside of a fridge and possibly 8-10 days in a fridge. Stored in a freezer bag or in freezer containers, the juice can last up to 6 months in a freezer.
As beetroot is quite a solid vegetable, it would be best to use a high powered blender to make juice to get a smooth consistency and less need to strain the pulp. A countertop or kitchen blender is the best option for home use, as it has the power and capacity to break down this root vegetable.
Models such as the Kuvings KPB351 Power Blender offer the necessary power to break down the ingredients, with a 2HP motor which can crush most things efficiently. For a budget option, the Tribest Dynablend Horsepower Plus DB-950A High Power Blender offers a still powerful 1.1HP motor, with an all stainless steel blade for better durability.
If you are looking to make larger quantities of juice or you are juicing commercially, then the Greenis FGR-8800 Commercial Vacuum Blender is one of the best on the market. It offers incredible durability, with the motor lasting up to 10 times longer than other conventional motors. It also does not fluctuate in speed, no matter what you are blending.
