Naturally sweet and vibrant Beetroot Detox Juice recipe with beets, pineapple, carrot, and lime plus soothing ginger. High in beta-carotene, vitamin C, and essential minerals!
We have been making fruit and vegetable juices at home for years and have already shared how we make one of our favorite juices with kale, beets, carrots, cucumbers, apples, lemon, and our beloved ginger.
We like to think of juicing as a quick way to get lots of minerals, vitamins, and nutrients to nurture our bodies with the best that nature can offer, first thing in the morning. Life in a glass!
Mainly, we use veggies and try to keep a 3-1 ratio with veggies and fruit to avoid skyrocketing the sugar content unless we do yoga or go jogging when the sugar is well spent.
Some veggies such as carrots and beets are naturally sweet and don’t need much fruit to make a lightly sweetened juice.
When we first starting juicing our carrot, apple, and celery juice, along with our simple but powerful celery juice became staples on our breakfast, until we starting adding more variety and delicious fruits and veggies.
When the weight has gone up a little we use our juice for weight loss which has lots of flavor and features de-bloating ingredients.
On this occasion, we created this juice as part of an Ayurvedic Cleanse for our friends from Ayurveda Lifestyle Yoga Academy. We combined highly alkalizing pineapple, beta-carotene-packed carrots and beets, and tangy immune system booster and anti-inflammatory ginger and lime for this beetroot detox juice recipe, making it the perfect detox cleanse elixir.
Beets and carrots bring sweetness and extremely eye and skin-nurturing properties. Pineapple adds lots of tropical flavor and water, while lime and ginger add zing.

How to Make Our Favorite beet juice detox recipe
We use a Slow Masticating Juicer that we absolutely love. Juicers break down into two camps — cold-pressed (also called slow masticating or macerating juicers) and centrifugal juicers.
The cold-pressed juicers slowly press down the vegetables and fruits until the juice is squeezed out and the dry fiber falls into another container.
Get an excellent Cold-Pressed juicer; it will be one of the best investments you have made in the year! Trust me! Make sure you check the juicer's instructions before starting, as many juicers have different working mechanisms.
On the other hand, centrifugal juicers extract juice quickly, and spinning cut down produce around until the pulp and liquid separate.
The centrifugal juicers are typically cheaper as the spinning mechanism creates heat, which can break down enzymes. Keep in mind that slow-masticating juicers are more efficient at getting more juice from your veggies and fruits.
If you want to save some bucks, you can buy a centrifugal juicer, and you can always add about a ⅕ ratio of water to augment the volume without losing flavor.
Our juicer is a slow cold-pressed juicer, and we are delighted with it. We used to have a centrifugal juicer, but we did experience, from time to time, a funny smell when the motor would get stuck for a couple of seconds with bot cut-enough produce. That smoky-burn flavor can permeate into your juice.
A juicer makes quick work of veggies, fruit, roots, leafy greens, and everything else. The juice comes together in under 10 minutes.
Beet juice cleanse benefits
We love learning about all the nutritional aspects of fruits and veggies, so let’s explore this juice together.
- Beets with high folate content should be your go-to option if in need to increase your blood’s levels of hemoglobin It is also a great source of Vitamin C and iron.
- Carrots (hello pretty skin) – the beta-carotenes present in carrots promote eye and skins health.
- Pineapples – have been linked to significant health benefits, including relief of arthritis symptoms, aiding digestion, improved immunity, and recovery after exercise.
- Limes (and lemons) - are very high in Vitamin C, a staple immune-boosting nutrient. They are highly alkalizing and are known for their antioxidant and detoxifying properties. Also, vitamin C helps with absorbing the iron found in beets.
- Ginger is the king in juices. Ginger aids in digestion, has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and relieves bloating. We love that is no need to peel ginger before juicing it. Just scrub it clean, and cut the pieces off, then push them through the juicer. If you’re sensitive to ginger’s spicy quality, try adding it and taste it before adding more.

Recipe: Carrot Beetroot Detox Juice
- 1 beet large
- 2 cups pineapple in chunks
- 5 carrots small, 3 mediums
- 1 inch ginger length piece fresh, scrubbed clean
- ½ lime or lemon, without the rind
PREPARE THE VEGETABLES and FRUITS
- Wash all your vegetables and fruits thoroughly.
- Cutaway the tops of the carrots.5 carrots
- Chop the beet, pineapple, and ginger into thin pieces small enough to go through the juicer easily.2 cups pineapple, 1 inch ginger, 1 beet
- Cutaway the peel from the lime or lemon, leaving most of the white pith and lime flesh. Cut into slices.½ lime
- Reserve about half of the lime.½ lime
- Turn the juicer on and push everything through, alternating between the pineapple chunks and the firmer carrots, beet, and lime.1 beet, 2 cups pineapple, 5 carrots, 1 inch ginger, ½ lime
- When everything but the reserved lemon has been juiced, stir the juice and taste for tartness. Add the remaining lime if you feel it can take it. Or, if the juice is too tart, consider adding a couple of scrubbed unpeeled carrots or a cored apple.
Make-ahead: Fresh fruit and vegetable juice is best enjoyed soon after juicing, but you can make it a day or two in advance. Make sure to store in glass, airtight containers. In case you have used a cold-pressed juicer, you are cashing up the expense! It should last a little longer.
