Beetroot Juice

Hello Lovelies,

This is one of my favourite red juices, I personally cannot stand beetroot but in a juice I could drink it all day.  Beetroot's have amazing health benefits they contain potassium, magnesium and iron as well as Vitamin A, B6 and C and folic acid.  They contain powerful antioxidant properties which are believed to help reduce cholesterol  which in turn protects artery walls and reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke.  They also contain folic acid which is essential for normal tissue growth and crucial to the development of a babies spinal cord so is great for expectant mothers.  Beets also have a low GL (Glycaemic Load)of 2.9 which means it's converted into sugars very slowly and therefore helps to keep blood sugar levels stable.  Enough of the info, now to the juice. 

For this juice you will need one beet, four small carrots or two large, a chunk of cucumber and one apple.  After peeling your beet chop all the veg up so it is easier to blitz, once it is the consistency of a smoothie pour it through a jelly strainer to separate the pulp from the juice, once you have squeezed all the juice out pour the lovely red juice into an airtight bottle then decant to drink, its not compulsory to add a pretty straw but I think it makes the juice drinking experience 10x better!
