Weighing in at just 150 calories, this vibrant, sweet, beet and orange juice is a lovely combination and can help you lose weight as part of a healthy eating plan. Drink well chilled and enjoy the stimulating, yet mellow, flavors.

High in Vitamin C, fiber and minerals, a single serving of beets can boost your energy and lower blood pressure. Eating them regularly as part of a long-term healthy eating plan can reduce arthritis pain and help you lose weight – not to mention the aphrodisiac properties many claim they have!

You can decide if you want to drink this as a juice or as a healthy ‘green’ smoothie – we give recipes for both at the end. The smoothie will have more calories but also a lot more nutrients.

The juice recipe is adapted from the book Juicy Drinks by Valerie Aikman-Smith and was published at the Williams-Sonoma website. The author writes …

Although these two ingredients may sound like a strange partnership, [they] are a match made in heaven.
