Chili Beet Corn Juice Recipe

by | May 19, 2022 | Dinner Juice

Description

Have you ever tried making your own corn milk?

It is super easy to make in a cold press juicer and it provides a nutritious sweet base to mix in other ingredients. You don’t need to soak anything, you don’t need to strain anything either when using your Kuvings cold press juicer.

This recipe is spicy, sweet, lemony, and tangy.

It is best served cold from the fridge.

You can always use less chili and less lemon if you want to tone down the tangy chili kick.

I really enjoyed it!

Next, add the thyme sprigs and the chili together followed by the apple.

Juice the beetroot next adding about 1/4 of the slices at a time.

Corn kernels are incredibly rich in manganese which has several benefits like bone health, teeth health, diabetes control, boosting metabolism, and reducing inflammation.

Beetroots are regarded as the "jewel" of the vegetable kingdom. They are the sweetest of all vegetables, they're loaded with nutrients and plant-based minerals that can ward off disease and help you experience amazing health.

The folate in beetroots helps lower high levels of homocysteine in your blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid produced when animal proteins are broken down. They can damage and narrow your arteries, which may lead to heart attacks and strokes.

The nutritional qualities of beetroot profoundly affect the pulse and the rhythmical pattern of the heart. I like to say that beets help your heartbeat.

Beetroot leaves can also be eaten or juiced if you have them available. They have known benefits for improving eye health, vitamin K, and vitamin C, for boosting the immune system. The leaves are actually higher in iron than spinach leaves.

Lemon

Lemons are a must have ingredient in any juicing kitchen. They help make veggie juices taste better and help fruit juices last long when stored in the fridge. Lemons are rich in bioflavonoids which can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. Lemon juice is known to be particularly beneficial for colds, coughs, and sore throats.

Lemons act as a cleanser and astringent; they squeeze toxins from the tissues and stimulate the liver to detoxify. Lemon juice is good for asthma, headaches, pneumonia, and arthritis.

Lemon juice is also beneficial for removing poisons in the form of old drug residues from the body.

Apple, Golden

Golden apples if you can find them are deliciously sweet and juicy.

They are rich in carotenoids, a group of potent antioxidants. They’re also a good source of potassium, iron, and zinc.

The yellow light protects cells against radiation and helps build a sense of wonder reconnection and willpower.

The phytochemicals in apples make them a true brain food, feeding neurons, and increasing electrical activity.

Yellow apples have traces of flavonoids, rutin, and quercidin—phytochemicals that are responsible for heavy metal and radiation detoxification—as well as the amino acids glutamine and serine, which help detoxify the brain of MSG.

Thyme

Thyme has some of the highest antioxidant levels among herbs. It is packed with bioflavonoids such as lutein, zeaxanthin, and naringenin

Thyme has a powerful ability to kill off bacteria and viruses and should be used at first signs of a cold or illness. 

It contains a compound called carvacrol which is an excellent natural tranquilizer and has a calming effect on the entire nervous system.

Thyme is a great purifying herb for the digestive tract and has been found to destroy certain intestinal worms.
