Brent’s Beet Juicing Recipe

Published by under Juicing Recipes

So my husband Brent bought a Breville Juicing Machine last week and he is having a lot of fun making up juicing recipes – testing them for taste.

So I started a new category on Mom’s Recipe Site for “juicing recipes”. This one is the best tasting one so far!

Brent’s Beet Juicing Recipe


This makes three full milk glasses of juice. Basically a full Breville pitcher (1200 milliliters/1.26 quarts) . If you are in a rush just get rid of the flax seed, chia seeds, goji berries, and wheat germ. MAKE sure you add all the seeds and wheat germ into the feed whole without the juicer on and then stuff a bunch of greens down the feed tube before starting the juicer up. OR ELSE the seeds and germ with go flying all over the room.

  • 2 medium granny smith apples
  • 1 pear
  • 4 tbsp of ginger
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup of goji berries
  • 1 small lemon (peeled)
  • 3 large stocks bok choy
  • 3 large stocks of kale
  • 1 six inch english cucumber
  • 1 medium sized beet including stock and leaves
  • 1/2 tsp stevia

Juice it all, chill, and serve on ice. Huge taste and huge energy boost for hours.

Brent’s own words;

“Holy crap – this one tastes amazing.”

This is a great carrot cake recipe, plus it freezes really well. I usually double it, to make a 13×9 cake. You never know
when you will have company come over. If  we go out for dinner to see Family or Friends, it is so easy to have something
ready to grab out of your freezer. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake, if it comes out clean
your cake is complete. Let cool and top with cream cheese icing.


Cream Cheese Icing

1/2 cup of icing sugar

4 oz. of softened cream cheese

1/4 of softened butter

1 tsp. vanilla



Beat well with a hand mixer

Fresh Garlic – 5 cloves

Fresh Cilantro – one whole bundle

Fresh Tomatoes – 10 medium sized

Fresh Limes – 3 (to taste)

White Onions – 2 medium sized

Crushed salt (not normal table salt) The chunky kind – TO TASTE

Dice tomatoes fine

Chop Jalapeno peppers fine (remove seeds)

Tajin mexican spice, Valentina hot sauce (optional)


STIR IT UP Then thoroughly squeeze limes in and mix

Add salt and lime to suit your taste

Mix well



Keep adding salt until the flavours start to go BOOM!.

If you don’t add enough salt it will never get that great
flavour. If you don’t add enough lime then it won’t get
that great taste. If you don’t add enough Cilantro you
won’t get that great taste.

This is my Husband’s specialty. We have a few Corona’s with salt and lime while he makes this.
Everyone likes it a little different, so taste test often as you go.
