This may sound a little weird to you, considering most people don’t eat beets all that much. It isn’t too flavorful on its own, but when paired with the right foods and prepared the right way, it can taste delicious.
Beet is full of benefits for your body. It has potassium, magnesium, lycopene, phosphorous, calcium, several vitamins, and antioxidants. As you can see, this is a powerful food.
It also has the benefit of looking AMAZING! I mean, who wouldn’t want a purple drink? It gets its color all on its own, making your drink naturally spectacular.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 Medium Beetroot
- Half of a Lemon (Lime works too)
- 2 Stalks of Celery
- 1 Green Apple
To prepare, just put all of your ingredients into the blender (EXCEPT FOR THE LEMON!) and blend into a beautiful purple drink. Squeeze your lemon into your drink after blending. For the best results and taste, drink your drink immediately after preparing it, otherwise it will oxidize and lose its rich flavor.
Celery has always been known to be good for you, and it is now even trending to drink celery juice, as it promotes many benefits. It promotes weight loss, strong immune systems, and a healthy gut.
90 percent of celery is water, which promotes hydration as well as weight loss. Celery also contains Vitamins K, A, and C, as well as potassium, folate, and antioxidants. Water is important for healthy hair as it strengthens follicles and hydrates your scalp. This is essential to achieve the shiny hair you want. This drink will help balance the pH in your scalp and hydrate your hair, which prevents dandruff and an itchy scalp.
Once again, this ingredient is not too flavorful, but mixing it with delicious ingredients will excite and amaze you, leaving you wanting more.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Half of a Cucumber
- 5-6 Stalks of Celery

- Half of a Lemon (or Lime)
After cleaning you ingredients, put the celery, cucumber, and apple through a juicer. Once again, do NOT do this with your lemon. After juicing your ingredients, squeeze in your lemon and then enjoy!
And that’s all there is to it!
Enjoy these delicious drinks for happier, healthier hair and have the silkiest locks of your life!
