Day 10: ultimate beet detox juice

I love to have a fresh juice in the morning since I don’t really like to eat breakfast and it’s a great way to let your system get a little extra time to reset.  Beets are very effective at detoxifying your liver and they are high in iron, calcium, B vitamins and antioxidants.  Kale, ginger, cucumber and lemon are also full of beneficial vitamins and nutrients and help cleanse the blood and fight inflammation.  I added pear for sweetness or you could use an apple if you prefer.

When making fresh juice I recommend using the best quality ingredients you can to avoid pesticides and chemicals.  I am fortunate to have access to a lot of locally grown and organic products but if you are using conventionally grown fruits and vegetables you might want to peel them before juicing.  For a sweeter juice you could add one apple to the mixture.  If you don’t have a juicer you can combine all the ingredients in a blender, add a cup of water or coconut water and strain the mixture through a strainer after you process it.

      I love this juice! The ginger and lemon really brighten the juice without overwhelming. This is good and good for you, the best of both worlds.I make a very similar juice but often with the addition of either kohlrabi or carrots.

        Hi Nev,

        You can boil the beet first if you are going to put it into the blender but it’s not required. You will have less pulp to strain and get more juice if you boil it first. Remember to add 1 cup of water or coconut water if you are blending since you are going to strain the mixture to remove the pulp. Thanks!
