Juice for Thought: Beetroot and grapefruit.

I’ve been doing a lot of nourishing recently, nourishing the mind with books, nourishing my creativity with writing exercises and finally, nourishing my body with an assortment of vegetable and fruit juices.

This is one of my favourite juices at the moment, mainly because when it comes down to juicing, most drinks seem to end up being green, which is not bad, I love a good green juice, but it can be a bit monotonous after a while, they taste different but they look the same; so having something on a bright shade of red or orange for a change is very welcomed 🙂

This juice is also less “earthy” tasting that the other beetroot juice I normally make, actually the beetroot flavour is almost entirely masked, so if you don’t like this veggie, or want to feed this to someone that does not like beetroot, go ahead and try it, you won’t know it’s there. Juices are a wonderful way to feed vegetables to people that wouldn’t normally eat them, or add more veggies to your own diet.

Without further ado, here is the recipe.

Ingredients:

1 Beetroot, washed.

1 grapefruit, peeled.

1 carrot, washed.

Half a lemon, peeled.

100 ml coconut water

How to:

1.- Add 100 ml of coconut water to the jug of your juicer.

2.- Then add the beetroot, carrot, half a lemon and grapefruit to the juicer and juice!

What’s good about it?

Beetroot has calcium, magnesium, vitamin C and manganese. It detoxes the liver and gall bladder.

Carrot has also calcium and magnesium, as well as beta-carotene. It encourages detoxing and supports eye-function.

Grapefruit is rich in vitamin C, magnesium and potassium. It supports the immune system and helps cleanse the blood.

Lemon has vitamin C and potassium, it is a potent antiseptic and natural antibiotic.

 

This juice tastes: Sweet, refreshing and invigorating.
