Beets are more than just something you put in your salad with arugula and goat cheese. They’re a veggie you can juice. This earthy root works well with lots of other fruits and veggies — and you’ll reap the rewards of the antioxidants and their energy-boosting effects. We love mixing beet juice with ginger, carrots, and apples, but almost any combination will work. These beet juice recipes show you the possibilities for some pretty delicious and nutritious beverages.

You Asked, Our Expert Answered: Benefits of Beet Juice?

Beets offer a lot when it comes to nutrition. They’re loaded with antioxidants; you can tell by their vibrant hue. They contain high amounts of fiber, along with folate, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. 

According to functional medicine physician Amy Myers, M.D., beets offer many benefits, including:

  • Hydration. Beets have a lot of water in them, yet they are low in calories and fat. This allows you to feel fuller longer with fewer calories. 
  • Protein. Beets contain a moderate amount of protein, which also keeps you feeling full longer and may curb sugar cravings
  • Lower blood pressure. Research shows that drinking a cup of beetroot juice daily can help reduce blood pressure in those with high blood pressure.
  • Better workout performance. 

Beets contain dietary nitrates, which “improve the efficiency of mitochondria, the energy-producing organelle that generates energy in each of your cells,” says Dr. Myers. “They’re especially helpful when it comes to high-intensity, heart-pumping exercises like running, cycling, swimming, and other forms of aerobic exercise. One study found that people who drank beet juice increased their oxygen uptake by up to 16%, effectively increasing athletic performance and endurance.”

1. Beet Carrot Juice

This beet juice has some serious zip, thanks to the addition of fresh ginger and turmeric — and it’s worth it to go out your way for fresh versus dried here. Blood orange makes it extra delicious (and the color matches the beets), but any orange will work.

Beet and pineapple are a seemingly unlikely pairing of earthy and tropical, but it works. Cucumbers add a cooling effect, which balances well with the spicy ginger that’s also in this mix.

Kale and beets come together for a whole lot of vitamins A and C, along with magnesium and potassium. Pineapple and ginger add sweetness and some zip to the flavor. Feel free to swap out the kale for Swiss chard or spinach, if you prefer. If your beets come with greens attached, use those instead.
