I love making bright colored smoothies. And one of the best foods to get a bright colored smoothie is beets!
Beets are very beneficial for you.
- are full of antioxidants
- can help purify the blood
- support the liver
- can help lower cholesterol
- can help lower blood pressure
- protect against diabetes
- can help with digestion
- are detoxifying
And any kind of berry really would go with beets, but I chose raspberries to stay consistent with the color, but feel free to use any berry of your choice!
