” ‘Beet’ the summer heat with this energizing beetroot drink.” – Chef Noel Cunningham,Cuisine by Noel
4 medium beets, washed, peeled and quartered
1 1-inch piece of peeled, fresh ginger
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 medium lime, juiced
Boil beets in a reasonable amount of water as it will be needed to blend the juice then let cool.
Once cooled, in a blender add beets with the water it was boiled in, add ginger and blend on high speed until well blended.
Press blended liquid through a fine-mesh strainer until all of the juice is out and free from pulp. Discard the pulp and sweeten with sugar.
Fill 2 glasses with ice, if desired, and pour the juice into the glasses. Serve immediately.
