The reason for that is I grew up eating lots of beet soups and salads. Did you know that beets are very low in calories? However, they are packed with so many minerals and vitamins including Vitamin C, B6, folate, magnesium, potassium, iron and manganese. Beets help to lower blood pressure, fight with inflammation and improve digestion. Moreover, beets help your body detox and lose weight. How beets will detoxify your body? It all happens in the liver when phytonutrients called betalains help to detoxify and remove the toxins from the body.

Tips to make Beetroot Smoothie
- It is not necessary to cook the beet, however I found it easier to blend. The beet is softer.
- Don’t drain the water from cooked beet. Use it in the smoothie! It contains flavor and nutrients.
- Add more water if the beetroot smoothie will become thick.
- I used my favorite Ninja Blender for this smoothie. It blends fruits and vegetables smoothly. I use my blender basically daily for smoothies.
