  • 1 medium orange, peeled and quartered
  • 3 kale leaves
  • 1 medium apple, cut into wedges
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled
  • 1 large beet, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 1-inch piece peeled fresh ginger
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. 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.)
  2. 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.

I modified this recipe and it still tasted great. Did 1 golden beet, 1 apple, 1 orange, 1 inch ginger, 3 kale leaves, 3 red kale leaves, 3 collard greens leaves. Kept all of the peels on and it was still sweet and refreshing

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.

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

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.

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.
