Can I tell you guys about my newest obsession? BEETS! I know, gross, right? But they’re really not that bad! Ever since I started dating my husband I’ve been less picky about my eating and willing to try new things. I even started putting onions in our food and I HATE onions! So I tried the beets out of curiosity and I was not disappointed. They are high in vitamins and minerals and also have a lot of other health benefits including cleansing your liver and purifying your blood. In my research I came across a recipe for a detox smoothie from Oh She Glows and decided to try it out, so I wanted to share it with you all:
Pink Power Detox Smoothie
Steam beet if necessary before starting (If you have a heavy duty blender like a Vitamix that you know can handle raw beets, skip this step. I used my Ninja blender and it works amazing!)
Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Adjust sweetness if desired, adding an apple to taste if needed.
*my local grocery store is really small and unfortunately doesn’t have a wide variety of produce, hence why I used canned beets instead. The health benefits are the same but just not as many vitamins and minerals as fresh beets.
**I did not use coconut oil because I could not find mine.. Seriously, who misplaces a whole jar of coconut oil?!
