Sneaking something good into my food is how I manipulate myself into eating healthy.
I can do it directly too but it gets old and falls into a boring routine. I end up abandoning the healthy snacks I make and they go to waste.
Once in a while, I try to do something about it because I need more iron than usual. I am not happy about it. I have to try harder to be healthy. Who would like that?
This time I choose juicing because they are easy to make and I had more citrus fruits at hand. There is no harm in juicing a citrus!
You could call this recipe a ‘refrigerator cleaner’ too because I used leftover beetroot.
It’s been quite a while since I written anything on WordPress. So bear with me if I am dragging this out. Food blogging block? Maybe.
I loved to pack smoothies when I go out. One major problem with them is oxidisation, that is, they turn darker in colour after a while if you used banana in the smoothie. It wouldn’t look appetising. Taste is retained, though.
This raw immunity boosting juice doesn’t deal with oxidising problem.
Because it has no banana
It’s not a smoothie. hehe. No brainer, right?
I worked with raw beetroot in this recipe, if you want you can steam and juice it.
It’s not a season for orange here, tangerine came to the rescue. Thank you!
All you have to do is,
use a manual juicer to extract juices of tangerine and lemon.
blend peeled and raw beetroot chunks in a blender with a cup of water, puree and strain.
Mix all the juices in a pitcher. No sugar was added for this recipe. Use white sugar if you want and serve chilled.
Here’s the recipe for beetroot-tangerine-lemon juice aka ‘raw immunity boosting juice’.
