How to make Beet root juice

Beets are very high in nutrients, and knowing how to make beet juice is a great way to add those nutrients to your diet. With regular consumption, beetroot juice can lower high blood pressure, purify blood, and improve circulation. It can also cleanse and improve the health of the liver, kidney, bladder and intestines, and help prevent colon cancer.

Beetroot juice is also a rich source of vitamins B, vitamins C and A, folate, calcium, magnesium, potassium and powerful antioxidants. However, beetroot juice is a powerful cleanser that you should drink moderately in small amounts and dilute with other vegetable and fruit juices to prevent the body from detoxifying too quickly. Adding other fruit and vegetable juices also tames beetroot juice's potent flavor.

You may be wondering how to make beet juice. Juicing beets allows you to get all of the vitamins and nutrients of the beet in a concentrated form. Whether or not you have a juicer in your kitchen, you can create beet juice and tasty beet juice blends. 

Things You'll Need

  • Some beets
  • Kitchen knife
  • Produce brush
  • Cutting board
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Apple
  • Fresh ginger
  • Juicer


Choose a small beet that is firm and smooth, not soft or shriveled. Not only are smaller beets sweeter than larger beets, but half of one small beet yields 1 ounce of beetroot juice, which is just the right amount of beetroot juice you need each day to reap its health benefits. 
Cut off the leafy green top of the beet. Rinse the beet and scrub it with a produce brush to remove any dirt that running water does not remove. Peel the beet, if desired or if the skin is too tough. 
Cut the beet in half or in quarters, depending on the size of your juicer and its motor strength. 
Rinse and prepare any other fruits and vegetables that you want to mix with the beetroot juice, then cut them into small enough chunks to fit your juicer. Try two carrots, one celery stalk, half a cucumber and 1 cup of pineapple chunks, or any other combination of fruits and vegetables you like. Add an apple or fresh ginger into the mix to sweeten the potent flavor of beetroot juice. 
Juice half or all of your beet one chunk at a time, according to to your juicer's instructions. Beets are hard vegetables that may strain your juicer's motor and take time to juice, but don't force the juicing process. Juice the other fruits and vegetables of your choice one chunk at a time, then mix with the beetroot juice.
You should be aware that the color in the beets can turn urine and bowel movements various shades of red. This can be very disconcerting if you are not expecting it, but it is harmless. Enjoy beet juice in moderation, and cleanse you body in the process.
