Beetroot Juice Mocktail

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.

Enjoy with Healthy beetroot cake or The cooked Beetroot cake. Try the Beetroot coleslaw too.

Note

  • 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.
