3 Easy Ways to Make Beet Juice Without a Juicer

1. How To Make Beet Juice in a Blender


Don't have a juicer? No problem - your trusty blender can do the job. This is my go-to method for quick beet juice at home. Here's how it's done:


Ingredients:


  • 3-4 medium beets, washed and tops removed

  • 1 cup water or juice (orange juice works nicely)

Instructions:


  1. Chop the beets into 1-inch chunks and add to the blender pitcher.

  2. Pour in the liquid of your choice (around 200-300mls). The beets blend better with a little liquid.

  3. Blend on the highest setting for 1-2 minutes until completely smooth.

  4. For smoother juice, strain through a mesh sieve or nut milk bag to remove any foam or pulp.

Pro Tips:


  • Leave the beet skins on for added fiber, but give them a good scrub first.

  • Add other fruits and veggies like carrots, apples, ginger or leafy greens for extra flavor and nutrients.

  • Have leftover pulp? Mix it into baked goods, dips or smoothies to reduce waste.

In 5 minutes flat, you'll have fresh, nutritious beet juice! The blender method is quick, easy, and versatile.

2. How To Make Beet Juice Without a Juicer or Blender


Don't have a blender or juicer on hand? Let's get back to basics with some good old-fashioned grating!

What you'll need:


  • 3-4 medium beets, scrubbed clean

  • Box grater or food processor with shredding disc

  • Mesh strainer or nut milk bag

  • Bowl

  • Spoon or muddler

To make:


  1. Grate the beets using the large holes of the box grater or food processor shredding disc.

  2. Transfer to a bowl and add water ( around 200-300mls so that the grated beets are submerged)

  3. Let soak for 30 mins

  4. Remove the beets from the water and transfer the grated beets to the mesh strainer or nut milk bag set over a bowl (keep the beetroot water)

  5. Press down firmly with the spoon or muddler to extract as much juice as possible from the pulp.

  6. Add some beetroot water if needed

  7. Discard or reserve the pulp for another use.

Pro Tips:


  • For more juice, pass the strained pulp through a mesh sieve or cheesecloth one more time.

  • Add a squeeze of lemon, ginger or other seasonings to brighten the flavor.

  • Drink or refrigerate the beet juice immediately for maximum nutrients and freshness.

No machinery is needed for this low-tech beet juice! It takes a little elbow grease, but the rewards are fresh, nutritious juice in about 30 minutes.

3. How To Make Beet Juice With a Potato Ricer or Food Mill


Another kitchen tool that can extract juice from beets is a potato ricer or food mill. These affordable gadgets work by forcing the pulp through small holes, separating out the juice.


What you'll need:


  • 3-4 medium beets, scrubbed clean

  • Potato ricer or food mill

  • Bowl

  • Mesh strainer or nut milk bag

  • Knife and cutting board

Instructions:


  1. Cut the beets into rough 1-2 inch chunks.

  2. Cook the beet chunks by boiling in around 200 - 300 ml of water until very soft (15-30 minutes).

  3. Allow the cooked beets and water to cool until safe to handle.

  4. Remove the beets from the water

  5. Working in batches, pass the cooked beets through the potato ricer or food mill back into the water you cooked them in.

  6. Pour the contents of the milled beets and water through a mesh cloth or strainer over a bowl

  7. Pour the fresh beet juice into a glass and enjoy! Discard or reserve the pulp.

Pro Tips:


  • Cook the beets until very soft for maximum juice yield.

  • Add other cooked veggies like carrots or ginger to the ricer for flavor variations.

  • For smoother texture, pass the juice through a mesh sieve to remove any foam or pulp.

  • Add a squeeze of lemon or your favorite seasonings.

Using a potato ricer or food mill is a simple way to extract nutrient-rich beet juice without an actual juicer. The cooking step helps release more liquid from the beets.
