Healthy Ruby Zinger Recipe
- 1/4 cup canned beetroot pieces, drained
- 1 slice fresh ginger, about the size of a 5 cent coin
- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice, cold
- 1 1/2 cups soda water, cold
- Add beetroot, ginger and apple juice to a blender or jug that can be used with a stick blender. Blitz until smooth.
- Just before serving, divide into glasses (strain if desired) and top with ¾ cup of soda water per glass.
Variation: For an earthier flavour, use more beetroot. To up the “zing” use more ginger.
Having a party? Serve vegie sticks and water crackers with salsa rather than high-fat chips and dips.
