Why we ❤️ it

We Dominicans love juices, after all, this is a tropical paradise with warm weather, and a wealth of vegetables and fruits to choose from when in need of refreshment. Some of our juices have more nutrients and health benefits than others, and a favorite option is this jugo de remolacha (or jugo de betabel) with orange or lime/lemon.

If you are looking for something lighter and more healthful compared to excessively sugary drinks, this beets juice recipe is a popular veggie and fruit combination you will love. Our beet juice recipe combines the earthy beetroot flavor with the sharper taste of either orange or lime/lemon juice, making it a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A as well as minerals.

What's remolacha?

Remolacha is the Spanish name for beetroot in the Dominican Republic and many other Spanish-speaking countries. Another common name for beetroot in Spanish is betabel. Beetroot juice is also known as jugo de vampiro or vampire juice in Mexico, often as a co*cktail with the addition of tequila.

Aside from making juice, another common way to serve remolacha is in our traditionalDominican saladand inensalada rusa. The pink stems and green leaves of the plant are also edible, similar to chard or spinach.

Remolacha benefits

Remolacha is a carbohydrate-rich vegetable (10% carbohydrates). Sugar is extracted from remolacha azucarera (sugar beet), a variety of beetroot that is common where sugarcane does not grow. It alsocontains2% protein and is a rich source of folate and fiber, a good source of potassium, and a moderate source (16% DV) of manganese. Some research suggests it will also lower blood pressure and enhance blood flow. It is also said to increase your stamina so a good choice when exercising.

Combining it with either orange or lime juice, makes this a good source of vitamin C.


How do you make beetroot juice?

The beetroot is blended, the juice extracted and mixed with lime or orange juice, and the preferred sweetener added (if any).

Should I boil beets before juicing?

No, this recipe calls for raw beets. You peel the beets, mix them with water and blend them to extract as much of the juice as possible, before sieving with a fine mesh strainer, or cheesecloth. The resulting beetroot juice is then mixed with orange or lime/lemon juice and sweetened to taste with sugar, honey, or your preferred sweetener. You could even add a dash of ginger for extra zing!

Can you make juice with beets from a can?

Canned beetroot is pre-cooked and often contains salt. The recipe calls for raw ones. Definitely better to go with the real thing.

Top tip

Use a juicer if you have one instead of a blender, and you may need to add less water to the juice.

About this recipe

This recipe has been simplified for modern audiences and conveniences. An older, more labor-intensive method is to grate the beetroot. Dominicans typically don't have a juicer, so that is not a method we commonly use.

And if you enjoy the occasional cool drink with your meal, then do we ever have great ones for you. This traditional Dominican vegetable juice is supposed to have medicinal properties. And while that is an area outside of my expertise, I can attest that it tastes much better than the combination sounds.
