Beetroot has a rich, earthy flavour (either you love it or hate it) with a mild, bitter edge, and is perfect for making a Vitamin booster in the harsh winter months.

I think beetroot has the most beautiful ruby red colour of all vegetables. Beetroot is a rich source of potent antioxidants and nutrients, including magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, vitamin A, B1, B2 and C, and betaine, which is important for cardiovascular health and it is a good source of antioxidants. Beetroot juice has been shown to lower blood pressure, it has been linked with better stamina and improved blood flow.
Beetroot has a rich, earthy flavour (either you love it or hate it) with a mild, bitter edge. Mixing beet with other vegetables or fruits cuts through the earthy taste and enhances the sweet taste of this red miracle.
Be a friend of the beetroot, it loves you more than you think. Its beautiful red and pinkish colour is very relaxing. I know, I tested it!
- - 3 small beetroot, peeled
- - 2 apple, deseeded
- - 1 orange, peeled
- - small piece of ginger, peeled

- Press everything (except lemon juice) through the juicer. Mix in the lemon juice and serve immediately. If you don't like the earthy flavor of the beet, dilute the juice with ¼ cup water.
