Beets are a magical food. Their deep crimson colour is what makes them a uniquely healthy choice. They are high in vitamin-C and fiber, which is extremely important in maintaining bowel health and normalizing your stool. Beets also contain betaine, which is an amino acid that helps to promote protein synthesis in our bodies, helping with muscle gain and fat loss.
That being said, this smoothie is refreshing, nourishing and rather filling! Using the whole beets as a smoothie, rather than a juice allows you to also consume important finer, keeping your intestines healthy and helping your body process foods. I love this as an afternoon snack or an early breakfast energizer before my yoga practice.
Bonus: beets and apples are usually inexpensive (even organic) so they won’t break your bank!
