Drop That Beet

beet juice recipe

What do you think gives this juice its gorgeous deep red color? If you said beetroots, you're half right. More specifically, it's the betalain pigments in beets.

The betalains in beets help fight inflammation at a cellular level. Betalains are also powerful antioxidants and promote anti-cancer activity. Additionally, the nitrates in beets can aid in athletic performance, that’s why I like making and drinking this recipe with beet juice one hour before working out.

Amongst other benefits, beets are known to help lower blood pressure. Oh, beet juice gives your poop a scary reddish tint (this is normal).

This juice recipe tastes great too. The apple adds a bit more sweetness, and the mint and lime give it a refreshing fresh punch.
