Beet the Heat Juice

What better way to cool off this summer than with a refreshing homemade juice that does double duty as popsicles? And now juicing is easier than ever thanks to a little help from the KitchenAid® Maximum Extraction Juicer.

Step aside, green juice. This vibrant red beverage is stealing the summer juice spotlight, and it’s packed with nutrient-rich beets, oranges, apples, carrots and a hint of fresh ginger. Grab your juicer and get ready for a healthy dose of fruits and veggies in this recipe for Beet the Heat Juice.

Juice is only as delicious as the ingredients it’s made with, which is why I turned to Melissa’s Produce to stock up on the essentials for this recipe. I received a large box of crisp and vibrant produce, including small roasted beets, which were the perfect size for popping into the feed chute on the KitchenAid® Maximum Extraction Juicer.

When it comes to juicing beets, you can juice them when they’re raw or roasted, with the roasted variety adding an extra touch of sweetness. Healthy Bonus: Beets not only help lower your blood pressure, they also aid in fighting inflammation and boosting your stamina.

With my ingredients cleaned and prepped, I turned on the juicer, added each ingredient into the feed chute and then sat back as the machine worked its magic. The beets lend a vibrant red color to the juice, while the orange provides a touch of tang. A sliver of fresh ginger made its way easily through the juicer, as it was sliced and squeezed to extract every last drop.

With three different pulp screens, I was able to control the resulting consistency of the juice and collect the pulp to use in veggie cream cheese and quickbreads. A few short minutes later I was staring down a big jar of freshly squeezed juice packed with vitamins and nutrients.

Best of all, this refreshing blend of fruits and veggies can be enjoyed with a straw or poured into molds for a frosty snack sans the guilt of ordinary sugar-packed popsicles.
