Home-made cucumber beet juice method:
Add diced cucumbers, peeled beet cut into pieces, chopped ginger and jalapeno to a slow juicer. Blend the ingredients till they form a smooth mixture. It is highly recommended to use a slow juicer because it retains the essential nutrients contained in your ingredients. Thus, you are not deprived of any associated benefits of the fruits or veggies. In fact, a slow juicer will ensure that you get to enjoy the same nutrition richness as that of the fresh fruit itself.
Once blended, pour the juice into the glasses. Garnish with some diced cucumber or beets. You can even top it off with some healthy, crunchy nuts such as pine nuts, crushed macadamia nuts or melon seeds to give it a little crunchy boost. Serve immediately.
Note: Beet is a natural sweetener so you will not need any added sugar or honey on the top.
You can use the leftover pulp for making topical veggie scrubs. You may even use it in making vegetable burgers.
