Beet & Berry Smoothie

Try this bright red smoothie when you need a surge of energy in the late afternoon or post-workout. Beets are a wonderful root vegetable to consume; they are known for their ability to support liver function and are thought to act as a blood tonic to improve circulation. Additionally, during a detox, when refined sugar is removed from the diet, this naturally sweet drink helps satisfy sugar cravings. And it is anti-inflammatory.
Beet Raspberry Smoothie

Ingredients

cup
raspberries
1⁄2 cup
strawberries
1⁄2 cup
pineapple
1⁄2 cup
beet, sliced
cup
water

Instructions

Place raspberry, strawberries, pineapple, beet and water into a Vitamix or other high-powered blender, then blend until smooth. 

Notes

If you use frozen fruit instead of fresh, you'll get a thick, icy drink that tastes more like a sorbet than a smoothie.
