Ready in 10 minutes | Serves 2


Don’t let the beets put you off! The berries in this super healthy drink mask all flavours of the earthy root vegetable. That said, beets are antioxidant rich, liver-loving vegetables that contain a number of cleansing and detoxifying nutrients. Beets are a unique source of betaine, a nutrient that helps protect your body from environmental stress. What’s more, beets are also a rich source of folate, manganese, immune-boosting vitamin C, phosphorus, zinc and copper, and B-vitamins.

Here’s a tip. If you want to get more antioxidants for your buck, choose organic. Studies show that you can get up to 40% more antioxidants in organic foods! This smoothie contains mega doses of antioxidants to help cleanse and detox your body, so go forth and blend.

Ingredients

1 medium beet, roughly chopped

1 cup frozen raspberries

1 frozen banana in chunks

¼ cup Organic Ground Flaxseed

½ cup milk of choice, more if required
