Beetroots are one of the most nutrient-dense foods available. They contain a color pigment called betalain, a detoxifying agent that has powerful antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory properties.

I made this smoothie with raw beets, feel free to replace them with steamed, roasted, boiled, or canned ones (make sure you get the no salt added version).

I prefer to use frozen raspberries, if you use fresh ones add a few ice cubes. Raspberries can be substituted with strawberries, blueberries or mixed berries.

If you don’t have a high-powered blender, I recommend grating the beet before blending because it takes a bit of power to cut through it.
