What are the health benefits of beets?
According to the Mayo Clinic, beets and raw beet juice offer a wide variety of health benefits.
- This healthy juice has many anti-inflammatory benefits and are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and essential minerals.
- Beet juice is good for digestive health, since beets are high in fiber.
- They also can help your heart. Beets contain a high level of nitrates, which have been known to help lower blood pressure.
- Fresh beet juice has also been known to help with weight loss, supports your liver, and may help reduce cholesterol.
This beet detox juice recipe is not intended to be a weight loss or diet recipe. It is merely a healthy, nutritious recipe you can incorporate into your general diet for breakfast or as a snacks. As always, please consult your doctor if you have questions.
🛒 Ingredient notes
Beets - Raw beets are the star of the show, and I prefer to use all red beets to get that gorgeous vibrant rose-red color.
Carrots - Carrots are known for helping promote healthy vision. They're also full of calcium and vitamin K, which are both great for strengthening your bones.
Spinach - This superfood is packed with vitamins and minerals that are good for your immune system, bone health, and it's a source of high carotenoids that can flush out the free radicals from your body. You can substitute other leafy greens, like kale.
Apples - Use your favorite red apple or green apple in this recipe. According to Healthline, "Apples may lower your risk for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Research says apples may also help with weight loss, while improving your gut and brain health."
Ginger - I add minced or grated ginger into every smoothie and juice I make. Ginger is known to reduce inflammation, aid digestion, lower cholesterol, and helps with bloating, gas, and nausea.
Fresh juice and water - Fresh juices (use lemon juice or orange juice) add a little acidity to balance out the flavors, and some yummy vitamin C. Use as much water as you need to reach the desired juice consistency.
Optional: you can also add splash of apple cider vinegar for added health benefits and zing.

👩🏻🍳 Recipe FAQs
If you have a juicer, great! If not, you'll need a high-powered blender that can break down the vegetables and fruits enough to reach the consistency of juice.
Of course! The color will be different than the juice you see here, but you can certainly use all golden beets or a combination of red and golden beets if you wish.
This detox juice is best enjoyed right after it is made. However, you can store it in mason jars or other airtight containers with lids in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
🍽 Serving ideas
I love enjoying this detox juice recipe after I travel, or after big events or nights out indulging in rich food and beverages. I personally find it's a great juice to help reset the system (especially as I age!).

- Juicer or Blender - Make this in a slow-masticating juicer. You can also make this in an inexpensive juicer like this Hamilton Beach juicer.
If you don't have a juicer (I don't), I highly suggest you invest in a high-powered blender. You can buy my favorite Vitamix blender that I use in every smoothie recipe you see on Urban Bliss Life. I got mine at Costco, but you can also buy the same blender online here.
