My ABC Detox drink ( Apple Beetroot and Carrot juice )

Its Detox Monday. After the feasting and indulging on weekends, it is time to cleanse our body with this wonderful drink/smoothie. Give your body added ammunition with the ABC of detox: Apples, Beetroots and Carrots which figure high on the list of detox ingredients.

Apples are known to flush out toxins and give the digestive system a kick-start. Beetroot is the most potent detox juice known to mankind and is renowned for its blood purifying properties. But a word of caution. Always mix beetroot juice with other vegetable/fruit juices. Carrots are power packed with Vitamin A and are great for eyesight and skin. They also improve the immune system and help metabolize fats and lipids. This drink contains the combined goodness of all three with a dash of lime. No need for adding sugar as all three contain natural sugars. Read on:

Preparation Time - 10 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1/2 cup apple (peeled & sliced)
  • 1/2 cup beetroot (peeled & sliced)
  • 1/2 cup carrot (peeled & sliced)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Preparation - Take all the fruits/vegetables in a blender along with 1 cup water. Blend well so that no chunks remain.

Drink it as it is (with the added benefit of fibers) or strain it to get the juice. Do not forget to add a dash of lemon.

Note - If you find the flavor of beetroot to be too strong, use apple-beetroot-carrot in 2:1:2 ratio.
