This recipe makes a dark Magenta drink. I just love the distinct taste of this root vegetable, so I added some extra beet juice to it. But you can simply adjust the amount of beet juice according to your taste.
And you will get a sweet magenta drink, which will be dark or light depending upon the amount of added Beet juice.
You can also make it bit sparkly by adding some soda water to it. And your alluring and sparkly pretty drink is ready.
We all know the health benefits of beets. And also that they are sweet in taste. Beets are full of antioxidants. They help in regulating the blood pressure, and are also a good source of energy for your body.

So to make this healthy drink even healthier, I added some honey instead of sugar. So it’s a bonus point that the only thing which is used here as a sweetener is honey. So don’t be scared of drinking this too much. You can drink as much as you want.
So YAY for this guilt-free, refreshing and citrusy drink! A happy Beet is a key for your healthy heartbeat!
To me, lemonade is the perfect summer drink because it’s so light, cool, and refreshing. I absolutely adore the bright pink color the beets lend to the lemonade, and they provide a sweetness to the mix that reduces the amount of other sweeteners you need to add.

Serve it over ice and enjoy your beautiful and nourishing pink lemonade! Cheers!
So let me share the recipe for the Beet Lemonade with you.
If you don’t have a juicer you can simply make fresh beet juice using any food processor. To make the beet juice, wash your beet and chop it into chunks, put the chunks in a food processor and grind them up into pulp.
For 1/4 cup beet pulp, add 1 cup water to the food processor. Blend the water and beet pulp together for a few minutes. Strain the beet juice through cheesecloth to remove the pulp. The juice is ready.
To make this veggie lemonade, begin by squeezing several fresh lemons. Add water and honey to the lemon juice to tone down the sour taste. Then add beet juice to it and mix everything well. That’s just it.
