Beetroot-Yuzu Juice

My Juice Bar is finally open! I just couldn't resist sharing this lovely beetroot juice recipe with you (and a word of warning that there might be more juice & smoothie recipes coming), and you can probably imagine how excited I've been about my new juicer. After all, I think I've mentioned it here and on Twitter about half a million times by now ;-)

So finally a whole WEEK after I got my new juicer I had time to start experimenting. I had my fridge packed with vegetables so all I needed to do was get everything prepared and start juicing!

I've never been a big shop-bought juice drinker, but if you are then I do recommend you consider buying a juicer. The one that I got is a heavy duty juicer (1200W), so I can chuck pretty much anything in it and it (hopefully) won't break. It cost me about AUD200, but I really don't think it's a lot especially if you drink a lot of juices. The best thing about making your own juice is of course that it's free of any nasty additives and preservatives, and if you can use organic produce, it's even better!

Have a think about it and if you already happen to have a juicer then have a go at this recipe ;-)

Beetroot-Yuzu Juice

3 medium beets, peeled and chopped in quarters
2 oranges, peeled
2 carrots, peeled
knob of fresh ginger

50ml yuzu (can substitute with lime or lemon juice)

Process the beets, carrots, oranges and ginger in a juicer, add yuzu and mix well. Serve immediately.
