You just cant BEET it!

When Christmas is here, it’s food and drinks galore and if you’re like me, you will need some form of cleanse/detox before the season is out. So, I have decided to share these great beetroot juice recipes to help with metabolism and to detox your liver as well.

Beet and Berry Liver Cleanse Juice

You will need:

2 medium beets

2 cups blueberries

1 apple

2 large carrots

1/2 cup raw


1 whole lemon

2 inch knob ginger,

skin removed

1/2 – 1 cup pure

coconut water


Chop beets, apples,

carrots, lemon, and ginger into 1” cubes. Feed through your juicer (per the

instructions), alternating small amounts of blueberries between the other

ingredients.  Midway through, pour a portion of coconut water through (1/4 –

1/2 cup) to help clean and push pulp through.  Continue feeding everything

through, finishing with enough coconut water to bring the juice to a total of 4


Tip – You can use a blender as well. Blue

berries are sold frozen at quite a few supermarkets, with brands ranging from

high to low prices.

Metabolism Booster

You will need:

2 green apples

1 small cucumber

1 small beetroot

1/4 lemon/lime

1/2 inch ginger


Cut everything into

small cubes. Place in blender or juicer, quarter cup at a time, until everything

is blended. If it is too thick, you can add some water. Makes about 2 glasses.

Tip– Cut recipe in half if you don’t want to make that much.
