  • Question: Does the beet get peeled as well as trimmed and halved? :)

    Cheryl on

  • Hi Cheryl, we’re so glad you tried it and shared these pictures with us! You were right in not peeling the beet – just make sure any dirt is rinsed off. :) So happy you loved it! Keep sharing your experiences with us. Happy blending!

  • Couldn’t wait to try it so I did not peel the beet. It was just fine but I think I may have used too large a beet because that seems to be the strongest taste I detect. I also used one cup fresh pineapple with one cup frozen because my frozen was much sweeter than the fresh and I just used a bit less ice cubes. Very refreshing and I love it! :)
    Made enough to almost fill my 32 ounce bottle and my 8 oz glass.

  • The beet does not need to be peeled; just make sure any dirt is rinsed off. :)

  • What is a wildSide jar?

    Nicky on

  • I’m going to try this. I like that it’s a beautiful Scarlett color and lower in sugars. Just getting over an illness I spent three dollars on a little bottle of beet/veggie juice to perk me up. (Temporary insanity) Never again!! Thanks for the inspiration to get well BlendTec.

  • Can this be made with cooked peeled beets?

  • Hi Nicky, you can learn about our WildSide+ jar here: http://www.blendtec.com/jar…

  • I used organic apple juice instead of water and the juice was excellent!

    Orv Neconie on

  • Hi, Donna! Yes, you can use cooked beets but the nutrients are reduced when beets are exposed to heat – just something to keep in mind. :) Happy blending!

  • I entered the information for this recipe in MyFitnessPal and the nutritional information was completely different. Very different actually. The above information says it was 85 calories, but MFP said it was about 325 calories. You might want to look into this.

  • Well, that explains it. I thought it was 1 serving. :\

    Mentalward on

  • It is 85 calories per serving (3 servings in this recipe). :)

  • This juice is delicious! I decided to skip pineapple to cut down on sugar and it still came out pretty sweet.

    Toma on

  • This is my very favorite drink now! Thanks for sharing

  • This looks YUMMY! Can’t wait to try it. :) Thanks Blendtec!
