Spicy & Sweet Beet Smoothie

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

When using root vegetables in smoothies, you do not need a large amount. They are very dense and high in fiber but if you’re wanting a thicker smoothie, you are certainly welcome to add more! This smoothie is an antioxidant dream due to anthocyanin glycoside content which is found in red, blue and purple pigments in fruits and vegetables. The cherries are an excellent anti-inflammatory and are often recommended for people suffering with arthritic conditions, gout, fibromyalgia and other inflammatory conditions. Enjoy!
