Have A Glass Of “Unbeetable” Juice!

The recipe has been featured @ Allrecipes Asia & received popular votes @ FoodBuzz!

Following my discovery @ Picturesque Food At Tung Lok Classic, I decided to experiment with the zesty Beetroot Juice that I’d tried there, while the tang is still tickling my taste buds. So off I went, to the supermarket & selected the famous Sarawak Pineapple, 2 Beetroots & 1 Lemon.

Of late, Chefs in top restaurants have been serving these bloody Beets. I read about the many benefits of Beetroots - rich in the nutrient betaine, which is important for cardiovascular health, blah, blah, blah. Because of this, I’ve tried forcing it down my throat but I simply dislike the taste – be it French, Italian or Asian styled-cooking & usually left it uneaten; till I discover the Beetroot Juice @ Tung Lok.

I guess the sweet Pineapple & sour Lemon somewhat helped to cover up the “raw” taste of this vegetable. These may not be the actual ingredients used @ Tung Lok but it tasted pretty near & I like it! Surprisingly, my fussy son "bottoms up" the entire glass.

The deep crimson colour is lovely to look at but be careful. Wash hands & equipment immediately after use as it can be staining. As a matter of fact, Beetroot dye is also used in ink.

I'm submitting this recipe to Any One Can Cook: Series 26 @ Taste of Pearl City as it is For beginners, With less ingredients & With minimum amount of time spent.

Ingredients:
1 Sarawak Pineapple
2 beetroots
1 lemon
1 tray of ice cubes
½ cup of water

1. Remove skin of pineapple, beetroots & lemon. Rinse thoroughly & cut into small chunks. * Remove seeds in lemon if using blender.

2. You may use a juice extractor or blender to prepare the juice. Many commercial juicers are filtered to remove fiber or pulp, but high-fiber juices are popular as these fibers contain vitamins essential for our body.

3. If using a blender, place a strainer on top of a glass to filter the juice. Remember not to remove all fiber as it’s good for health. It is said that Beetroot Juice “could save your life”, claimed the Daily Mail. So start making yours now! Nothing beats a glass of icy, refreshing juice on a hot summer day!

  6. Beetroot is definitely good for you but the earthy taste can be hard to swallow! Pineapple and lemon with beetroot sounds perfect!

  7. Beets are very good for health. It's a blood tonic. But don'd drink too much for a start. Build up slowly. Also, when making juices, try not to mix vegetables and fruits together because of its different enzyme activity. Apple is the only one that's recommendable. It's also best to eat fruits as they are because of its high sugar content. Have fun juicing! It will make you stay young and healthy! :D
