We have put together all the information to make this task as simple as possible for you.​

3. Alternative method to make beetroot juice without a juicer:

One of the most important equipment you would need for juicing is a juicer.

Using it is simple and makes the process much easier. However if you do not own a juicer yet, we have another alternative to help you get your glass of beetroot juice.

Serves: 1

Preparation time: 10 minutes​

Ingredients and equipment that you will need:​

  • 2 medium or 4 small beetroots
  • Peeler
  • Knife
  • Blender
  • ¼ to ½ cup water
  • Cheesecloth
  • Serving glass

You will need to peel and finely chop the beetroots and then blend them with water in the blender. Add the required quantity of water to get the desired consistency.

You will then need to strain the juice through the cheesecloth to leave the pulp or pieces of beetroot behind.

The reason why we prefer using a juicer is due to the effort required in straining the juice. But it always helps to know an alternative method. You never know when you might need to use it.​

Step by step instructions:​

The steps below are easy to follow for even complete novices. Let us see them in detail:

Step 1: Trim:​

To trim the ends of the beetroot, use a sharp knife and cut off the greens from the top. You can trim the root end of the beetroot as well.

Beetroot is the taproot part of the plant. The leaves of this plant are edible too but the juice is usually made with just the beetroot. The leaves of the beetroot are similar in texture to spinach.​

The greens that may be used must be from beetroots, which do not have wrinkled skins; as these bulbs may be dehydrated. The greens can be added to salads, or even eaten boiled or steamed.​

In case you decide to use the greens as well, make sure that you wash them well under running water. For best results, chop the greens into small pieces measuring about an inch. You can then add them along with the beetroot.

Step 2: Wash:​

Washing the beetroot is an important step. You must wash it thoroughly under running water. You could even use a soft brush that is designed for washing fruits and vegetables.

Using a brush can help remove any dirt that may be stuck to the skin. Also, sometimes using fingers might not help to remove the dirt completely.

One thing to remember when washing beetroots is that they bleed pink color. After washing them, it is best to let them sit in a colander for a few minutes. This will help to drain the water out and would not cause any staining.

Wash the apples, carrot, ginger and celery well too ensuring that no dirt is stuck on them.​

You can also use a small amount of soap used for washing fruits and vegetables while washing them. This will ensure that they are absolutely and spotlessly clean.

Step 3: Peel:​

Peeling the beetroot is a step that you can decide to do or skip depending on the beetroot that you are going to use. There are a couple of things you must consider.​

The skin of the beetroot has a lot of nutrients. It is also quite thin and you could easily use it after washing the beetroot well. On the other hand, if you find that the skin is thick or tough, you can peel it.​

Also keep in mind that if you are using the skin, the juice might have a slightly bitter aftertaste. If you want to avoid this, it is better to use the beetroot after peeling it. Use a Peeler or a Paring Knife to do so.​

Similarly, peel the Carrots. The apples need not be peeled. You can use them with the skin itself. You can Peel the skin of the ginger using the back of a spoon.​

Step 4: Cut:

While cutting the ingredients make sure that they are of the right size according to the Juicer. It is better to cut the beetroots in half, and then cut each of the halves in half again. You could also cut the beetroot into long slices.

Remove and discard the core of the apple. Cut it into long slices or quarter them. Cut the greens from the top of the carrot and cut them into chunks or slices.Cut the celery into long slices. Since the piece of ginger is small, you can use it as it is, without cutting it further.​

Quartered or sliced fruits and vegetables should be able to fit into most juicers.

Cutting them the right size is important so that they do not put too much of a strain on the motor. If you are using a juicer with a low power capacity or an older model, it is better to cut the fruits and vegetables into smaller pieces.​

Step 5: Juicer set up:

One step that many people might forget to do is to learn how to use the juicer effectively. If you haven’t read the instructions before, there is no better time to do this than now. After all, you must use it so it gives you the best results in a safe manner.

Make sure that you have followed all the instructions and assembled it right. Each juicer comes with its set of instructions so read them well before you start.​

No matter which juicer you use, it goes without saying that you should maintain safety at all times. The sharp blades of the juicer move fast. They can cut through hard vegetables like beetroots and carrots. So never get your fingers in the way of these blades, or you will risk injuring yourself badly.​

Step 6: Get the Juicer ready:

So, now that all your ingredients are ready, and you have read the instructions, you must get your juicer ready before you perform the task of juicing. Most juicers come with a container or pitcher that you need to place in front of its spout. This will help to collect the juice that comes out.

In case you do not have one of these containers, you can use a bowl or a large glass. Place it under the spout to catch the juice.​

Now you can turn on the juicer.

Some models may require you to put the ingredients in and cover the hole. The others might require you to push the pieces inside one by one. Read and follow the appropriate instructions for putting the ingredients inside.

Step 7: Put the ingredients in:​

Process the ingredients through the juicer. First feed the apple, then the carrot and finally the beetroot. Do not add the lemon into the juicer.

Place one piece at a time into the chute of the juicer. Gently use the plunger provided with the juicer to push the piece inside.​

You must do this slowly as pushing the piece too firmly could lead to the motor getting burnt out. Beetroots are hard, and they could take some time to get processed. Be patient and do not push the pieces quickly into the chute. Wait for one piece to finish processing before you put the next piece in.

Continue putting all the pieces of all the ingredients into the chute of the juicer and add the ginger at the end.​

Step 8: Top it with lemon:


Step 9: Enjoy:

The best way to enjoy this freshly squeezed juice is in a chilled serving glass. You can chill it for about 30 minutes before serving or add a couple of cubes of ice if you like it more chilled.

You could also store it in the refrigerator for a day or two but the flavor of the juice tastes best when consumed immediately.

Pour the collected juice into a serving glass and enjoy.​
