Golden Beet & Citrus Smoothie a.k.a. Electric Green Smoothie

A really energizing smoothie with all the good stuff. Yes, it’s another beet smoothie, but if you’re experiencing a cold winter, and have access to plenty of root vegetables, this is the time of year to go crazy on beets. I never really cared for beets, but raw, in smoothies they have a pleasant, earthy taste. And, they really help the liver in detoxifying the body. This particular smoothie is full of antioxidant powerhouses that boost your immune system and wake you up on a cold, dark day.
