Beetberry Juice/Smoothie Recipe

Hello everyone!

Sorry I went M.I.A for a while there, I am applying to college (all over again wooo) and it’s been sucking up my time. But things seem to be smoothing out nicely now!

Here is a juice/smoothie recipe I conjured up yesterday afternoon. I wanted something sweet, nutritious and a little bit of an immune boost since I keep hearing people say that they feel like they are starting to get sick. If you prefer juice over a smoothie, cut down the amount of frozen berries by half and if you prefer smoothies add half of a frozen banana to the mix! I had this drink after a heated yoga class and felt even more amazing afterwards.

Beetberry Juice/Smoothie

Beetberry

Level: Easy

Equipment: Juicer & Blender

Time: 10-15 minutes

1st Juice:

Just Cucumber Beet Kale Cabbage Juice

5 oz. Red Cabbage

1, Medium Cucumber (with skin)

3 oz. Beet

5 Stems Kale (I used Lacinato, I prefer juicing it because I think it gives more juice and it usually looks the best at my local organic grocery store)

Put the above juice in the blender and mix it with:

Blender Beetberry

1 oz., Frozen Wild Blueberries (Just blueberries is fine too!)

1 oz., Frozen Raspberries

1 Tablespoon, Chia (loaded with omegas, fiber, protein, antioxidants and magnesium)

1 Tablespoon, Acai (high in polyphenols, antioxidants, and helps with circulation, heart, skin and boosts your energy)

1 Tablespoon, Sprouted Ground Flax (great source of omegas, lignans, fiber and magnesium)

Blend until you are satisfied with the consistency!

The idea of drinking cabbage juice may seem bizarre to those who are new to juicing and raw foods. But the health benefits are endless and the combination of beets, red cabbage and berries ends up tasting sweet and satisfying. The kale juice doesn’t really stick out, so if you like your drinks tasting extra green you may want to add four or more stems of kale in there.

Here are a few health benefits of consuming red cabbage:

  1. Raw cabbage is THE only type of cabbage that shows cancer-preventive benefits!
  2. The powerful red color of red cabbage contains containing significantly more protective phytonutrients than green cabbage. It is also high in antioxidants, and is an anti-inflammatory, protecting our body from harm and diseases.
  3. 3. Red cabbage is much higher in polyphenols (antioxidants such as vitamin E and vitamin C) compared to green cabbage.
  4. 4. It’s great for treating ulcers, cleansing the body (sulfur) and is beneficial for eye and skin health (vitamin A).

Drink up! 😀
