Skip To The Beet


I’m back with another cold pressed juice, I know, such a hipster! This one is from innocent, I’m sure most of you are familiar with the brand. This time they’ve stepped away from smoothies and created two juices; skip to the beet and easy greens. I’ve only tried the former so that’s what I’ll be telling you about today.

Innocent have combined beetroot, apple, carrot, lemon and ginger to create Skip to the Beet. As you would imagine, this juice has a very earthy base but it’s not too overpowering and you still get the sweetness from the apple to balance things out. I thought it was really tasty and easy to drink. However, I was surprised to see that the highest content within this juice is the apple which comes in at 73%, then there’s beetroot at 20%, carrot 5% and lemon, ginger 0.4%.

I personally prefer a juice to have a higher quantity of veg than fruit, especially if I’m starting my day with it. But, I do understand that when you’re buying a juice or smoothie from the supermarket as opposed to making them at home you can’t be too fussy. Brands have to create something which will appeal to the mass market and I think a lot of people are likely to prefer a fruit based juice as they’re more palatable and sweet.

I really enjoyed skip to the beet. I’m usually quite peckish after the gym and this gave me a kick of energy and prevented me from snacking on unhealthy food. I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying this again, it tasted good and compared to some juices in the supermarket it has a good quantity of beetroot in. If you’re going to give this a try then be open to an earthy juice and give it a chance. I hear that beetroot is very good for you and this is an easy way of adding it into your diet.

I’ll try to get my hands on their other juice, easy greens this week and get a review up for you. You can find out more about the range on the site.

Have you tried any of the juices from Innocent? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
