Juicing is a fantastic way to get all of the benefits of the vitamins and nutrients found in fruits and vegetables in the highest concentration possible. Beet juice, which can do everything from reduce your risk of developing different types of cancers to help prevent premature aging, is one of the best to juice, and you can do so with or without a juicer. Beets have historically been used favored for their medicinal properties, however more recently have been appreciated as a fat fighting vegetable.  The high amount of soluble and insoluble fiber makes beets a great candidate for many juicing for weight loss' juicing recipes.

Below are some simple guidelines if you own a juicer:

  1. Start by cleaning two to three beets as well as possible. As they’re roots, they likely have mud or dirt on them (even if they look clean) and this isn’t a flavor you want in your beet juice.
  2. Once clean, quarter the beets, saving the greens for later use in a green juice recipe.
  3. Then, run the beets through your juicer, one at a time, and drink up!

Below are some tips if you do not own a juicer:

  1. If you don’t have a juicer, you can dice the beets up as small as possible.
  2. Then run the pieces through a blender or vitamix with just enough water to give the juice a little movement. Remember, you can always add more water, but you can’t take it out, so use it sparingly.
  3. Once the juice is smooth, slowly pour it through a fine strainer to remove as much of the pulp as possible.

When you want a bit more flavor, or more nutrition, out of your beet juice, you can try adding apples, pears, carrots, oranges, or ginger. Here are some recipes to get you started: beet juice recipes

Including some of the leaves of the beet can up the nutritional value without altering the taste as well. No matter what recipe you use, always drink beet juice when it’s fresh for the best results, and store any extra by freezing it in single portions for later!
