Berry Beet Smoothie
Updated: Nov 8, 2019
Beets are one of my all-time favourite root vegetables! They are sweet, slightly bitter, juicy and taste delicious. They have a gorgeous deep red hue and can add a pop of colour to any salad or smoothie.
Beets are loaded with phytonutrients that provide antioxidants, anti-inflammatory support, and aid in detoxification. The phytonutrient in beets is called betalain. This nutrient is heat-sensitive which means the more you cook it, the more it will lose its nutritional value. So be sure to have them raw every now and then.
This Berry-Beet smoothie is a perfect power breakfast that is rich in Vitamin C, B Vitamins, protein, fiber, healthy fats and not to mention, it tastes absolutely delicious.
