Whenever I run out of ingredient ideas for my juices, I like to challenge myself by aiming for one color in particular. Last week, I shared a juice recipe with only orange ingredients. This week is all about the color red with this watermelon cherry berry beet juice.

Why This Recipe Works

  • Simple ingredients (with suggestions for alternatives)
  • Packed with nutrients
  • A perfect blend of fruits and vegetables
  • The sweetness of the fruits evens out the earthiness of the beets
  • Kid-friendly (they won’t even know it includes beets!)
  • Flexible (you can adjust the amount of beets used to make it more or less sweet)
  • Hydrating and filling
juice ingredients: watermelon, berries, cherries and beetPin

Ingredient Notes

Watermelon: I used a baby watermelon for this recipe, but any watermelon will do. 1/4 of a baby watermelon is the equivalent of about 2 cups of watermelon cubes (without the rind). If you can’t find or simply don’t like watermelon, you could use 3-4 blood oranges instead.

Beets: Beets are the secret star ingredient in this watermelon beet juice recipe. They’re rich in folate and manganese and support heart health.

Berries: You can use any mix of (preferably red) berries. I used strawberries, red currants, and raspberries and loved the blend of those three. To keep things simple, you could also just pick one type of berry and increase the amount.

Cherries: I used to love cherry juice as a kid, so I like to add them any chance I get when they’re in season. Any kind of cherry works, just remember to remove the stems and pits before adding them to your juicer. If you can’t find cherries, simply use more berries or watermelon.

🍒Tip: Cherry pits are toxic, so it’s very important to remove them before you start juicing!

Other red fruits and veggies that would work in this watermelon beet juice recipe: you can also use tomatoes and/or red bell peppers. I would just recommend being careful with the amounts and adjusting them to your liking. Tomatoes have quite a strong flavor profile, so if you add too many, they might overpower the other elements of the recipe.

  • A juicer: a cold press/slow juicer is ideal for this watermelon beet juice recipe. Scroll down to see the one I recommend. 
  • Optional accessories: all other accessories are optional, but I’d recommend drinking juice with a reusable glass straw to protect your teeth. For easy storage, glass jars are always useful and can be repurposed in multiple ways.

How to Make This Watermelon Beet Juice in 3 Easy Steps

Step one | Prep the produce: to prep your produce, first cut up the watermelon and remove the rind (this is optional as the rind is edible, just made sure you thoroughly wash it if you do use it). Next, wash the beets, berries, and cherries. You can leave the berries and beets as the are (although, I do sometimes like to cut off the ends of the beets). Lastly, remove the stems and pits of the cherries. Cherry pits are toxic, so this step is very important! They can also damage your juicer, so removing pits from any fruit is recommended.

Step two | Juice the ingredients: Add the ingredients to your juicer and start juicing! If you’re using a different kind of juicer, you might need to cut the watermelon and beets into smaller pieces before adding each ingredient one by one.

Step three | Serve & enjoy: I personally love to add ice cubes to my glasses or jars to make the juice even more refreshing. Another way would be to refrigerate your produce before juicing it. This recipe yields about 750mL/3 cups, enough for 3 small or 2 larger servings. You can enjoy it as part of your breakfast, instead of your morning coffee, or as an afternoon snack.

🧊Tip: fresh juice is best enjoyed right away, but you can store it in the fridge for up to 2-3 days in an airtight container like a glass jar or bottle. Another option is to freeze the juice in ice cube trays.
