The Benefits of Beets and a Red Velvet Smoothie

In the past, I never embraced beets. I'm becoming more fond of them and today I used them in my smoothie. Two weeks ago, I used beets in my burger. Here is a smoothie recipe I saw on IG and I was inspired to make it!

The benefits of beets:

1. Excellent source of fiber, calcium, potassium, Vitamins A & C and iron.
2. Helps digestion
3. Stimulates liver function
4. Lowers cholesterol
5. Anti-cancer

The red velvet smoothie I made this morning....
Juice 1 beet, 1 carrot or 6 baby carrots, a small piece of ginger and an apple.
Add the juice to your blender and blend with another beet, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 frozen banana and 2 tbsp of cacao powder. Add oat milk and filtered water to thin out the smoothie. Pour in a glass.
Blend 2 frozen bananas and milk to make ice cream and add to the top of your smoothie.
It tastes like red velvet. Chocolate, slight beet, oat milk tasty :) Recipe courtesy of @veganista_q8 on Instagram.
