225g (8oz) or about 1 large beetroot, trimmed & scrubbed
175g (6oz) raspberries
100g (4oz) blueberries
2 teaspoons runny honey or to taste
1. Cut the red cabbage and beetroot into pieces that will fit in your juicer shoot then press through an electric juicer.
2. Puree the raspberries and blueberries with a little of the red cabbage and beetroot juice in a liquidiser until smooth then add the remaining juice and sweeten to taste with honey.
3. Pour into two glasses and serve immediately or pour into a sports drinks container, seal well and take to the gym for a post workout energy boost.
No juicer? No problem! Use 300ml (1/2 pint) store-bought cranberry, raspberry, pomegranate juice or coconut water instead and puree with the raspberries and blueberries in a blender.
