Beets are full of powerful antioxidants that fight inflammation and support detoxification of the liver. The deeply colored red beets contain betalain, a unique compound that contributes to these detoxification benefits.

Beets are also great blood builders. Detox depends on mineral-rich blood, and beets deliver iron, copper, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and dietary nitrates. Full of folate, beets are a cell regenerator, too. The anti-inflammatory betalain fights infections, and combats abnormal cell development. Beets also help to cleanse the colon and lymph system.



This recipe is flexible based on what you have on hand. Frozen avocado provides a perfect creamy texture, but could be replaced with any nut butter. Frozen zucchini could be replaced with frozen cauliflower. Strawberries could be replaced with any berry. If you prefer a lighter smoothie, you could use water instead of non-dairy milk.
