Juicing ingredients

  • 1 medium Beetroot
  • 1 handful Basil leaves
  • 2 Pears
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/2 a red Bell pepper

Overview

This is a great vitality juice.

What a taste this juicer recipe has! Beetroot juice is very rich and this recipe addresses that fact with the Lime juice which helps to cut through the richness. The Basil complements the Beetroot very well.

Beetroot is an excellent source of iron and also contains the caretonoid Betaine. Betaine has numerous benefits including antioxidant properties and helps with red blood cell production and lymph activity. Red Peppers also contain an abundance of anti-oxidants so this juicer recipe has cancer preventative properties.

Pear are a good source of soluble fibre and will help 'sweep out' the intestines.

Directions

Top and tail the beetroot and then scrub the beetroot if organic / home grown, otherwise peel the beetroot and cut into pieces small enough to fit in your juicer. Wash the pears, peel the lime and wash and deseed the pepper.

Fold the Basil leaves up tightly and feed them into the juicer between pieces of Beetroot. Juice all the other ingredients, stir and drink immediately.
