This easy to make beetroot juice with orange and ginger contains only three ingredients. It’s loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and it tastes good too. No need for a juicer, you can make this simple juice in a good blender.
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 thought you might appreciate a recipe for this nutritious and beetiful purple zinger. 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.
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 (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. They’re 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.
I like to use blood oranges for this beetroot juice with orange and ginger. The blood colour of the oranges just seems like a good fit. Sadly, I can’t always find them and was unable to do so this year. It’s not that big a deal, however, so I often use ordinary oranges 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.
Beetroot is a firm favourite with me, but CT is less keen. Luckily, we’re both big fans of hot and fragrant ginger. Ginger (Zingiber officinale) gives this very earthy vegetable a bit of kick and sends it to a more fiery place. 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’m so 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’d like to order an Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Power Blender*, at time of writing it’s on offer at £399. Order it or any other Froothie appliance through either of these links and Tin and Thyme readers will get an additional two years warranty. This takes the Froothie five year warranty up to seven years. There’s also a 30 day money back guarantee with free return postage costs.
