A Valentine's Day Pick-Me-Up Beet Juice

This is my latest morning squeeze.

Besides all its aphrodisiac qualities, this juice is simply the perfect energizing, detoxifying and immunity-boosting tonic for ANY day, particularly during these cold-weather months.

The ingredients are seasonal, both in the sense that most are sweet, fall-harvest favorites AND because this jewel-toned juice happens to be aesthetically and functionally matched with our annual love day! It’s so vibrantly hued and filled to the rim with sexy ingredients.

I Heart Beet Juice

Adapted from: The Big Book of Juices

Makes 2 servings


  • 2 beets *
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 apple
  • 1 orange**
  • 1 celery stalk
  • ½ - 1-inch piece ginger root


Put each ingredient in the order listed into your electric juicer according to the manufacturer’s directions.

*If you have a few beet greens (leaves) attached to your beets, feel free to juice them as well. This will result in a darker, more vegetal-flavored juice.

**Unless your orange skin is very thin, you will need to remove it and only juice the flesh.

Juicing tip: always juice your stringy, fibrous ingredients (like celery and ginger) last so they won’t accumulate inside your juicer and prevent the other ingredients from passing through properly.
