A beetroot shot is a great way to consume a lot of essential vitamins and nutrients in one go. Easy to incorporate into your everyday routine, a glass of beetroot, ginger and turmeric juice offers a wide range of health benefits.
This beetroot, turmeric and ginger juice incorporates all of the key nutrients found in three of the healthiest superfoods around. Whilst beetroot is super good for you, when eaten fresh and unpickled, it can taste quite bitter and unappealing. Combining beetroot with sweet fruits and warm spices makes this root vegetable much easier to consume, and actually very tasty. The purple colour also makes for a bright and vibrant drink, perfect for uploading to Instagram.
We like to share our knowledge with everyone, ensuring all have access to the health benefits of our superfood shots. Follow this simple beetroot and turmeric shot recipe for a juice packed full of vitamins, minerals and delicious flavour.
Chop the beetroot into thin slices, small enough to go through the juicer/blender
Remove the outer rind from the lemon, then chop the flesh into slices and remove any pips
Put about half of the lemon to one side. Add the other half to the blender gradually, along with the watermelon and beetroot and blend until smooth
Add the grated ginger and turmeric
Add the ice cubes and blend until there are no lumps
Taste the juice. If you feel it needs more lemon, add the other half that was put to one side earlier. If you don’t wish to add the remaining slices, they will stay fresh in the fridge for 3-4 days
Tip: if the taste is too tarte, you can try adding apple slices or a spoonful of honey.
