apple, beetroot and ginger juice

This apple, beetroot and ginger juice one of the most tasty drinks I’ve made in a while. Not only does it look spectacular but it’s delightfully refreshing too.

I only added 2 beetroot because I didn’t want the earthy flavour to overwhelm the drink, but the colour is a vibrant deep pink making it so deliciously fabulous to look at.

Raw juiced ginger is very potent so you don’t want to add a lot, it can deliver a mean burn. The flavour comes through in just the right quantity to balance out the sweetness of the apple.

If you have ever tried juicing a beetroot in a sub-par juicer you will know its no easy task. There will be a lot of pushing and grinding and very little juice will squeeze out. This is why I simply adore my Breville Juice and Blend. Its one of the most powerful juice machines on the market – of industrial strength, and I’m convinced it could extract water from a stone. I frequently juice all the leftover bits in my fridge, such as carrots and celery, and it processes them to a liquid form with ease.

I made this juice as a welcome drink at the recent Breville Elle Deco readers event and people raved and asked for the recipe. I also did a cooking demonstration on the night using my fabulous Breville appliances, and the evening was so much fun.

~cooks notes. I used Golden Delicious apples which are much sweeter, but if you would like to tone down the sweetness and up the tartness, go with Granny Smith (or use a combination of the two).

Recipe – makes about a litre

  • 6 apples
  • 2 large beetroot (aprox 400g)
  • small piece ginger, about 3-4cm long
  • Breville Juice and Blend

To make a juice in the Breville Juice and blend you dont need to peel anything, but its best to just top and tail any ends or remove unnecessary leaves. Whack it all through the beast-of-a-machine and out pours your juice into a neatly contained jug.

This particular juice blend (as with most) develops a foamy layer which you just need to stir before serving. The froth actually has a lovely texture, a bit like a cappuccino only juicy.

I served it with ice to make it ultra refreshing.

    This is one of my favorite juices! …and I also like to use Golden Delicious (or Pink Lady) apples for this type of juices.
    Yesterday I made beetroot juice with lemon, celery, carrots, ginger and apples. So good! Here’s a snapshot: https://twitter.com/Paine666/status/583200469213925376/photo/1

    How long does the juice keep for? Just pulled many beets from my garden, relish is under way, juice next

    Hi Nicky – I m not too sure as I always drink it within a few days. It will last as long as any fresh fruit juice without preservatives. a good 3 – 5 days id say
