Beet Juice Recipe
Detox Beet Juice is healthy and easy to prepare which makes it a regular in our household. I love how I only use the freshest ingredients, no sugar, and no preservatives.
It is a great thirst-quencher all-year-round, not just for summer! The main ingredient, the beetroot, is a healthy vegetable, and adding the other vegetables makes this drink even more nutritious.
Detoxification is a natural process wherein the body expels harmful chemicals. Through it, you invigorate your body to its full potential, and sometimes people even do it to lose weight.
Through this recipe, you will have an all-natural drink that is free from all the unwanted chemicals that will not benefit your body. Instead, you get the most out of the natural sweetness and flavors of the ingredients.
It is also a nice way to incorporate veggies into the kids’ diet. Since it is a fun, fresh, and colorful drink, it will be hard for them to say no! Just perfect for the whole family!
