Ginger, Beetroot and Celery Juice is a healthy, Sugar-Free and Immune boosting juice. Made with just 4 main ingredients, it is made in just 5-10 minutes of your time. It is a good detoxifying and alkalizing drink.
This juice is naturally sweet from Beetroot. Celery is a low-carb vegetable and contains 95% water. It hence adds the needed water to the juice. Ginger and lemon are added to give the much-needed flavour. But that said, even though added in small quantities, they add their health portion to the juice.
Celery Stalks and Celery Greens
Celery stalks are widely used as opposed to their green leaves. However, celery greens are edible too. I am a bit new to celery. All I did was making juices with celery and eating them with some homemade peanut butter or chutneys. I recently tried a Celery chutney and it was quite refreshing and bursting with flavours.
A rich source of iron and fibre, I like to incorporate beetroot in many of my recipes. Beetroot can be eaten raw, boiled, baked. Some easy ways and healthy ways to add beetroot to your diet are by making this, Carrot, Beetroot and Horsegram soup or this Beetroot Hummus.
Lunch Box Recipes or Travel food with Beetroot
One can even make healthy lunch box recipes or travel recipes with Beetroot. I love to make this Beetroot Paratha and Beetroot Idli. Kids also love to eat these Vegan and Gluten-Free Beetroot and Oats cookies.
Beetroot and Carrot Yogurt Sandwich is a healthy breakfast or a snack which everyone would love.
Are Beetroot Greens Edible
Yes, Beetroot greens are edible too and it is a wonderful and healthy veggie to sneak into many dishes. I love to add the beet greens in my khichdi, dal, Idli or Dosa. It adds colour to the dish and kids love it.
Today’s recipe of Carrot Beetroot and Celery Juice
All I did is chopped the beetroot and celery finely. Added it to my mixer/blender along with ginger and blended it to a smooth consistency. One may need to add a little water or orange juice to achieve a juice-like consistency required. I love to add a bit of chaat masala for flavour but it is completely optional.
All in all this Ginger, Beetroot and Celery Juice is a fibre-rich, detoxifying juice loaded with essential nutrients. It will keep you hydrated, may improve your digestion and may help fight infections.
I do not like to filter my juices as I believe one has all the nutrients in the pulp. One can filter if required, using a muslin cloth or a strainer.
I do not like to add salt to my juices or raw food as much as I can. So I have skipped adding that. If you are not enjoying the taste, one can add salt as per taste.
Adding additional Sugar?
Sugar is not needed in this juice at all. If you have a very sweet taste then you can add a spoon. Again adding sugar to this juice will take away the health benefits this juice will impart.
I have added chaat masala to this recipe. Chaat masala is a blend of spices made using seeds and herbs. It has some Himalayan salt in it so it does compensate for not adding salt. Also, the chaat masala gives a nice flavour to the juice. However, if you do not have it, you can completely skip it. I add because I like the taste and flavour.
Water or Orange Juice
I have added simple water to this juice for consistency. One can add orange juice or fresh oranges too in this juice instead of water. Avoid store-bought orange juice as it would have added sugar.
