Earthy, Sweet Beet Juice Blends: 10 Tasty Combinations for Vibrant Homemade Juices


10 Best Beetroot Juice Recipes -

As someone who has operated a juice bar for over half a decade and crafted thousands of juices and smoothies, few ingredients delight me more than the vibrant beetroot. The earthy sweetness and rich color that beets impart are simply unbeatable when it comes to upgrading your juice game.


Adding beetroot delivers a concentrated burst of nutrients like folate, manganese, and potassium. According to Healthline, the compounds in beets called betalains provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits as well. With a beetroot juice cleanse or simply adding more beet juice drinks to your routine, you can boost energy levels, immunity, and circulation.


In this article, I'll share my 10 favorite beetroot juice recipe combinations perfect for juicing beginners and long-time beet lovers alike. I'll provide tips for prepping and juicing beets, along with some of the fruits and veggies that pair well with beets and the best types of juicers to use. You'll learn how to craft sweet, earthy beetroot juice drinks and even beetroot shots.


Let's dive in!



 

Fruits and Vegetables that Pair Well with Beets


Beets’ earthy flavor profile pairs wonderfully with fruits and vegetables that provide complementary sweet, savory, citrusy, or spicy notes. Here are some of my favorite ingredients for beet juice blends:

  • Fruits: oranges, grapefruit, lemon, lime, pineapple, mango, strawberries, raspberries, apples, pears

  • Veggies: carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, spinach, kale, ginger, turmeric, parsley, mint

  • Herbs/Spices: ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, basil, mint, parsley, chili powder, black pepper

Be creative and combine beets with your favorite fruits and veggies for nutrient-packed juices bursting with flavor. The possibilities for tasty beet juice concoctions are endless!



 

Choosing the Right Juicer for Beets

When making beet juices at home, the type of juicer you use can impact the quality and yield of your blends. Here's an overview of how fast and slow juicers differ when juicing beets:


Fast/Centrifugal Juicers

  • Use a fast-spinning metal blade to shred produce

  • Juice is extracted by centrifugal force through a strainer

  • Quick juicing but can oxidize juice rapidly

  • Best for juicing hard fruits and veggies like beets, carrots, apples

  • The grating blade can shred beets to maximize juice yield

Slow/Masticating Juicers

  • Use an auger to crush and press produce to extract juice

  • Operate at lower RPMs to minimize oxidation

  • Best for juicing leafy greens like spinach, kale and soft fruits like berries

  • Can jam when juicing stringy produce like beets

  • Lower juice yields compared to centrifugal models

For beetroot juice recipes, a fast centrifugal juicer is ideal. The high speeds and grating blade can effectively break down beets’ dense, fibrous texture. This results in higher beet juice output compared to masticating juicers.


However, as we will be adding leafy greens like spinach and soft fruits like berries a slower juicer may provide better performance and less oxidation. If you can test your recipe with both models to see which creates the best, most vibrant beet blends for your needs.

Expert tips:


Here are a few tips to use to get the most out of your beetroot juice combinations:


  • Feed the juice pulp back through the juicer to squeeze out every last drop

  • Feed the harder-to-juice ingredients first, such as leafy greens, berries ,and ginger. Then feed the easier-to-juice ingredients such as apples, pineapple, or carrots. This allows the easier-to-juice ingredients to flush through the harder-to-juice ingredients getting the maximum juice from the harder-to-juicer ingredients

  • Use organic produce where possible.
