The colour and taste of this smoothie was unbelievable, my mouth was stained for part of the morning, but it was worth it. I recently got a juicer and beets are one of my favourite things to juice because of their earthy and sweet flavour. Not to mention that beet juice packs a big nutritional punch. Some of the cited health benefits of beet juice include:
- Increased stamina or energy because of it’s high concentration of natural nitrates. Nitrates help increase blood flow in your body.
- Lowered blood pressure
- Decreases inflammation in the body because it’s a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
- It’s ability to detox the liver
…And the list goes on, but just as a reminder, if you’re not going to drink this smoothie for it’s health benefits, you can still drink it for it’s delicious taste.
- 1 cup of frozen organic blueberries
- 1 cup of beet juice
- 1 – 2 frozen bananas
- 1 cup water or nut milk
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth, drink and enjoy!
