Beet Turmeric Smoothie: Energizing, Cleansing, and Fortifying

“Beets are a high-antioxidant vegetable that contain a number of nutrients that have been shown to be cleansing and detoxifying. A few of these include betaine, which helps the liver cells eliminate toxins; pectin, a fiber which clears the toxins that have been removed from the liver so they don’t reincorporate back into the body; and betalains, pigments with high anti-inflammatory properties to encourage the detoxification process.”

This is the perfect energizing, cleansing, fortifying smoothie for the winter, or any, season. It has everything you need to keep going: beet root, greens, fresh turmeric, whole citrus, and berries. 

Like ginger, fresh turmeric has some great health benefits. It boosts the immune system, it aids digestion, and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Tastewise, it’s mildly sweeter than ginger, but still invigorating. Turmeric in this smoothie adds zing. It’s got a great flavor I really love.
