This beetroot broccoli juice is not only colourful and delicious, but also very healthy. It made entirely of vegetables, since I try to keep my fruit juice intake at a minimum. I used to love pink berry juices (still do), but their sugar content is quite often much higher than those of veggie juices so I decided to make a compromise: pink juice, but a healthier option
Beetroots are delicious. I can’t believe I did not like them as a kid. But their earthy, slightly sweet taste make them perfect for this juice. Beetroots are also a great base ingredient for juicing, since their water content is quite high (as is for most root vegetables). Beetroots contain 7 grams of natural sugars (per 100 grams) and have plenty of positive nutrients. They are full of antioxidants and contain nutrients that can improve the quality of your blood. They can also improve your immune system, so that your body is less vulnurable to deseases.
The sugar content of broccoli is much lower than those of beetroots, only 1.7 grams per 100 grams. They are a great source of vitamin C, K, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B11. You only need to consume a small portion of it, to get the recommended daily intake.
Convinced that these veggies are good for you? Then let’s bring out the recipe.
