Purple Joy Juice

Lovely farm produce

This is the ultimate juice for us at the minute. Beetroots don’t come anymore vivid and radiant than the ones we are getting from the farm. We are buying them by the bunch, with their long tasty leaves still on. It is a real treat to be able to use such amazing produce.

You cannot mess around with juicing. There are no textures to confuse the palate, there is nowhere for poor produce to hide. If you juice something grown in mass barns by machines (possibly) you won’t get any flavour and little colour. There will be no joy in your juice. You can see by the photos, this juice was brimming with purple joy.

Juiced beetroot is quite potent and a powerful elixir for the body.  They have discovered that its boosts athletes performance, according to the Independent newspaper.  So much so, that beetroot juice is being called the new super fuel for athletes.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see some ‘purple joy’ being cracked open at the Olympics this summer.

Beauty beets

There is a new brand in the UK shops called ‘Beet It’, an organic beetroot juice that is really getting this message across.  Its good to see this type of juice alongside the sugary, from concentrate brigade that you normally find.  So much rubbish can be hidden in most fresh fruit juice cartons.

There is no getting around this, to juice, you need a juicer.  Sorry….. (get a red Magimix like ours, they’re ace!)

The purple joy juice is so sweet and is really revitalising, after a few minutes you are buzzing in the nicest possible way.  Full of energy, like a bee.  If you need a pick me up, hit the beets…..

The Bits

3 vibrant beetroots, 4 carrots, 1 big juicy apple, small piece of celery.

Do It

Juice the beetroots first, we don’t peel anything, just scrub it a little and trim off tops and bottoms when necessary.  Then the carrots, celery and apple.  Leave the juicer on for a while to catch all the precious dribbles.

Serve

We like ours out of jars, but glasses will do just fine.

We Love It!

We are drinking this everyday at the moment and a friend warned that too much beetroot juice actually turns you purple!

Foodie Fact

Beetroots contains lots of Nitrogen Oxide and scientists have only recently discovered how wonderful this stuff is for the body.  It is a regulator of blood pressure, controls blood flow to certain organs, is a stamina enhancer via oxygen usage efficiency and is a weapon against infection.

  1. yum!

    Have you ever made beet kvass? Fermented beet juice? It looks much the same (without that lovely foam)…and it’s really good too…I drink it daily. It’s not strictly juice in that I chop the beets up, put a weak brine over them and let them ferment several days…

    I read that study about beet juice! Awesome! Wish I had access to that kind of farm fresh produce! Beautiful!

  3. I don’t have a juicer (or much cupboard space) but I almost need one now! I love these photographs so much. Beautiful!

    • It is a little bulky, a juicer is something you really must want, otherwise its just a lump in the kitchen! Happy days, leex

  4. simple sustenance

    The color is so vibrant! Never had beetroot juice before. Will give it a try. Looks delicious!

  5. I have a juicer that my mum left behind but Ive never used it! I think the whole cleaning it and disposing of pulp is putting me off lol (although I found an awesome recipe for making crackers from the pulp I will have to find it). I have started making smoothies in my blender though, I wonder if I could grate raw beetroot into my blender and it would work ok. I will try it next week!

  6. I definitely should try this purple juice once our red beetroot ready to be harvested.. thanks for the recipe.. God bless! :

  7. I love the name of this juice! Ahhh we need to invest in a juicer…!!!

    I’m only starting with the juice-part, but I love it! And I love this one! Love to you both!! I’m trying the veggie ‘partybowl’ soon!! I’ll let you know how it went! 🙂
