Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Working in this order, process orange, kale, apple, carrot, beet and ginger through a juicer according to the manufacturer's directions. (No juicer? See Tip.)

  • Fill 2 glasses with ice, if desired, and pour the juice into the glasses. Serve immediately.


No juicer? No problem. Try this DIY version of blended and strained juice instead: Coarsely chop all ingredients. First, place the soft and/or juice ingredients in the blender and process until liquefied. Then, add the remaining ingredients; blend until liquefied. Cut two 24-inch-long pieces of cheesecloth. Completely unfold each piece and then stack the pieces on top of each other. Fold the double stack in half so you have a 4-layer stack of cloth. Line a large bowl with the cheesecloth and pour the contents of the blender into the center. Gather the edges of the cloth together in one hand and use the other hand to twist and squeeze the bundle to extract all the juice from the pulp. Wear a pair of rubber gloves if you don't want the juice to stain your hands.

Delicious! Beets and oranges are a great combination. I added a piece of fresh turmeric and I used a big handful of the power greens blend from Costco instead of the kale leaves. Read More

I would suggest to take the stem off the kale and make sure not to use too much ginger other than that this is a very pretty red juice. Read More

I have a question: why does the juice have to be strained? isn't the pulp edible? good for you? how about using a fine mesh strainer would that work? thanks Read More

Surprised... I have to admit when I first started juicing I never thought I'd like this drink. I don't like beets. At first I wasn't crazy about it. Now it is one of my favorites. That's why I rate this drink awesome. To get me to eat or drink anything with beets says a lot. I've recommended this recipe as well as the other 6 to others who are starting to juice. They are regular recipes for me. Read More

Refreshing! A delicious drink. The ginger really brings out the best in the other components. Pros: Bright crisp refreshing flavor. Cons: Doesn't look too appealing; color is a turbid greenish-muddy color. Read More
