Pomegranate Beetroot Juice Recipe-Healthy Summer Coolers

Pomegranates and beetroots, both contain plentiful amount of antioxidants and nutrients and they are also rich in vitamin C. Many do not like beetroot juice, so to make it more palatable, I have mixed pomegranate juice with it. I read an interesting fact about beetroots which I would like to share here. According to whfoods "Beets, frequently consumed either pickled or in borscht, the traditional Russian soup, may be one reason behind Russians long and healthy lives".This colorful root vegetable contain powerful nutrient compounds that help protect against heart disease, birth defects and certain cancers, especially colon cancer. Beetroot is well known for it blood purifying properties. Due to the rich iron content, it is said to be an indispensable cure for anemia. So why not include a glass of this juice in our diet at least twice a week and enjoy its health benefits.

How to make Beetroot Pomegranates Juice 

Prep time - under 15 mins
Serves -1 

Ingredients needed 

Pomegranates -1 big sized fruit 
Beetroot - peeled and chopped -1/4 cup 
Fresh lemon juice -2 tsp 
Honey -2 tsp 
Mint leaves - 2 for garnishing (optional)

Preparation and method

Cut the pomegranates and separate the arils (seeds) from the white membrane. Add 1/4 cups of water and blend it for a few seconds in a blender or mixie. 

Strain using a juice strainer and keep the pomegranates juice aside.

Grind beetroots with 1/4 cups of water to a smooth paste and strain it using a muslin cloth or cheese cloth or any thin cotton fabric. Squeeze to extract as much juice as possible. Now your beetroot juice is also ready.

Now mix beetroot juice, lemon juice and pomegranate juice together, add honey (if required) to taste.

Garnish with 2 fresh mint leaves and serve chilled. 

I think it's a great way to sneak beetroot into a kid's diet and also to get someone who is not fond of beetroot to eat beets.

Note - Use fresh beetroots and pomegranates.

  10. I love the colours! I was looking for a nice mocktail to make with pomegranate juice when I came across your post. I have tried your recipe before with kdd harvest’s pomegranate juice, the only thing different was I used a pinch of black salt and pepper to this juice. Trust me it tastes amazing. I haven’t made this for long, now that you have reminded me of this, I am surely making this tonight! Thanks!
