With spring cleaning in full bloom and summer right around the corner, what better time than now to rid your body of toxins and impurities? I don’t know what it is about spring, but it makes me want to clean everything and start fresh. Then it got me thinking, shouldn’t I be detoxing my body too? That was when all of the crazy juicing started.

This wonder elixir has many beneficial properties including detoxifying the liver and kidneys and lowering inflammation. The mixture of beetroot, apple, pear, ginger and lemon is chock full of phytonutrients, carontenoids and antioxidants, which pack a powerful punch of nutrition.

Beets are rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus. They are a natural detoxifier and blood purifier. Beetroot is also rich in a variety of nutrients that are important for the immune system to work with full efficiency – as beets encourage the production of antibodies that fight against disease or infection inside our body. Beetroot is also rich in iron and that is why it boosts red blood cells with required iron and facilitates the supply of oxygen towards the cells making our body healthy and young.

    I’ve made this before. Absolutely great for you, but tastes like crap. Okay, not totally like crap, but beets taste terrible. I usually prefer use half the beets these recipes say.

    • Katie

      Beets have a real earthy flavor and some people may be pleasantly surprised of the lovely, almost sweet taste. If you aren’t partial to the flavor of beets, I recommend using a smaller amount in the recipe.
