How to make freshly squeezed beet juice at home?

It is best to have a juicer to help with the process. Fortunately, you can get a quality juicer at quite a reasonable price nowadays. However, you can also make a blender work, with a little extra steps.

The first is to prep beetroots for squeezing beet juice

Use a brush if needed to scrub the beetroots, and wash and rinse well. Either air dry or pat dry with a paper towel.

Last is to squeeze beet juice using a juicer or blender

Follow the instruction of the juicer and so a small batch at a time.

When you use a blender to squeeze juice, depending on the specific blender functions, you may need to add 1/4 cup water initially to get the blending started.

After you’ve done with the first batch, leave some beet juice liquid in the blender before adding additional peeled beet chunks for next batch. You can use a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer to separate the beet juice from the pulp.

Beet Juice Frequently Asked Questions

How much beetroot juice can I have each day?

I recommend between 1-2 cups a day. Since beetroot juice is extremely rich in minerals, nitrates, for instance, you do not want to over-load the body. In fact, if you have a thirsty after taste, that is your cue to stop.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) put this wisely, it is all about Yin-Yang balance. Do not overdo it.

What other things I should know?

Since beetroot juice is highly pigmented, you may notice your urine and stool become pinkish looking. This is normal.
