How to make the juice
The easiest way to make juice probably is with a juicer but if you don’t have a juicer you can use a strong blender instead. This juice is made with a Ninja Blender and a sieve. First peel the beetroot, apple and carrot and cut into small cubes. Cut a piece of ginger of 2-3 cm and peel it. First blend the apple and carrot with 100 ml of water. Add the beetroots and the ginger, lime juice and fresh mint and give a few more strong blends. If it’s not smooth enough you can add a bit more lime or water. You can either drink it as a smoothie, but if you prefer juice, then use a sieve. Pour the blend into a sieve above your glass. Use a spoon to press the juice through the sieve.
