For the love of beets, it’s Sunday! Happy Sunday! Cheers to Sunday… with water.
No more celebrating a holiday… thank goodness. Time for good cleansing foods and drinks, like this great beety red smoothie.
If you took a look at yesterday’s post on Facebook or here on the blog, you know beets can be used for a variety of dishes, including Strawberry Brownies.
Beautiful Beet Smoothie
- 1 handful spinach
- 1 scoop protein powder of choice (I used Vega Complete Whole Food Health Optimizer, Vanilla Chai Flavor)
- 1 beet, steamed/baked and roughly chopped
- 1 tbsp cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 cup almond milk
- dash of cinnamon
- Stevia or honey to taste
Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Add in ice, as needed for a thicker, more ice cream-like shake.
You can use any fruit or protein powder flavor you’d like. Banana and strawberries. Blueberries and raspberries. Pear and mango, even! The beet adds a thicker, smoother texture, and lots of beautiful color and fiber!
Beets are great, but did you know that angelica root is too?
Angelica root is anti-spasmodic and gastric stimulant that is another key ingredient in the Rebootizer daily detoxifying system (in a fun squeeze pouch). Tomorrow you get the last ingredient and the last day of your chance to win a pack of Rebootizer to try.
All of these 7 key players are what create this daily detoxifying system, perfect for athletes, body-conscious people, and the occasional indulger. 😉
Enter here for a pack of your very own!
