Beetroot Juice with Orange and Ginger – A Beetiful Purple Zinger

Drinks, Vacuum Blender | 27th March 2018 | By

There’s been enough chocolate decadence on Tin and Thyme this month, so with a pre-Easter cleanse in mind or even a post-Easter one, I’m giving you an easy to make beetroot juice with orange and ginger. This juice is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and it tastes good too. So what are you waiting for?

Beetroot Juice with Orange and Ginger

This beetroot juice is super simple to make. You don’t even need a juicer. Just load everything into a power blender and blitz. The flavours of beetroot, orange and ginger meld well together with complimentary notes of earth, sweet, sour and spice. I add a little water to help the mixture blend and to make the drink less intense.

Beetroot Juice with Orange and Ginger

The juice is perfectly acceptable just as it is, but if you prefer something a little finer, pass it through a sieve. I did both. I generally prefer my juices to have all the bits in; dietary fibre is not only good for you, but it slows sugar absorption into the blood stream. However, in this instance, I felt the sugars weren’t too excessive and it would be nice to try a more clarified version.

Beetroot

Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) is one of the few veg I’ve been able to grow since the deer started getting onto our plot a few years ago. Beetroot are obviously not to the deer’s taste. I don’t know if I’ll manage to sow any seeds this year as we still have so much clearing to do in our new garden, but I’m hopeful. We’ve grown all sorts in the past: golden, stripy and white, but good old-fashioned purple is my favourite. It’s a nutritional powerhouse loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.   

Oranges

I wanted to use blood oranges for this beetroot juice with orange and ginger. The blood colour of the oranges just seemed like a good fit. Sadly, I’ve been unable to find any this year, so I used a common orange orange instead. Oranges not only add sweetness and essential sharp notes, but they’re also chock full of Vitamin C. It is this vitamin, in particular, which is most likely to be lost through oxidation; using a vacuum blender makes a big difference to the nutrient quality of blended drinks. See below for more details.

Ginger

Beetroot is a firm favourite with me, but CT is less keen. Ginger (Zingiber officinale) gives this very earthy vegetable a bit of kick and sends it to a more fiery place. We’re both big fans of hot and fragrant ginger. It’s good for so many things: headaches, nausea and arthritis to name but a few. 

Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Blender

I made the juice in my new Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Power Blender. This incredible machine not only blends everything into a smooth and silky liquid, but if you use the vacuum function, you get more vitamins and minerals for your buck. Yes really. By taking the air out of the ingredients, less oxidation occurs leaving your juice or smoothie staying fresher for longer.

I’ve been really impressed at how long my smoothies last without discolouring since I started using the Vac2. I make a big batch now to last for three days. Not only are more of the nutrients retained, but my smoothies have not separated to anything like the extent they used to. Often they don’t separate at all.

If you’re interested, you can read all about it in my Optimum Vac2 review. For other recipes using this fab machine take a look at my Full on Froothie page.

      Thanks Iris. It’s a good one. I always feel I’ve had a good boost when I’ve had some beetroot.

    I love juices and smoothies with ginger in them so this would be perfect for me. I can imagine that those flavours go perfectly together and definitely need to try beetroot in a smoothie now.

    What a great flavour for a juice. This combination is actuallylly one of my faves as a soup so I now need to try your juice to see how it tastes chilled!

      Haha, I’ve never had quite this combination in a soup before Laura, i.e. the orange, so I will have to try that 🙂

    I keep meaning to make juice in my blender (I’m going to strain them through a nut milk bag – unlike you, I’m not keen on the bits!) and really need to get round to it. I’m impressed you grow your own beetroot and I’m jealous you get to see deer (even if they do eat your veg!)
