This healthy beetroot juice mocktail is beautiful to behold and delightful to drink. A lot of people are downing beetroot juice these days by the mug load. This is because beetroot is regarded by some health experts as a superfood (nutrient-rich food). It reduces blood pressure, is high in immune-boosting vitamin C etc. and cooking decreases these nutrients. My son no. 3 can’t get enough of it, so even kids love it.
It looks so much like the zobo drink (sorrel).
For such an awesome drink, Beetroot juice mocktail is so quick and easy to make. Beetroot pairs beautifully with oranges, so you can use fresh orange juice in place of lemon juice. The honey can be replaced with sugar or any sweetener.
To make Healthy Beetroot juice mocktail
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice 2/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup raw, unpeeled, finely grated beetroot 6 cups water
Wash Beetroot very well. No need to peel it.
Grate with a grater or food processor.
Squeeze lemons into a cup.
Put grated beets, lemon juice, sugar and 1 (one) cup of water in a blender and blend.
Beetroot will never be fully smooth. Use a fine strainer to strain into a jug.
Add 5 cups of water, stir and taste for sugar. Chill and serve.
- A note of warning though, beetroot juice can turn your ‘bathroom business’ red. So don’t freak out if this happens. It is perfectly normal and no harm is done. Once it clears out of your system, they will be back to their usual colour.
