Raspberry Beet Smoothie

Printable Version

Smoothies and juicing is all the craze these days. This is another healthy smoothie you can add to your try list. It has so many great beneficial fresh ingredients that it can only do you good. Beets are fantastic for the liver and to stabilize blood sugar levels when eaten on a regular basis. Watercress is packed with vitamins A, C, K and Calcium. This is just a fraction of great tasting health in a glass but I won’t bore you with all the specifics! Just remember this, using a blender or food processor is better than using an actual juicer. Juicers separate the fiber from the fruits and veggies. Both soluble and insoluble fiber is essential to our daily diet and to prevent so many easily prevented diseases. So don’t waste your money on a juicer. And as always I encourage to add, replace or take away whatever you want in this recipe to make it your own!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 small raw beet
1 cup frozen raspberries (or more to your liking)
1/4 cup packed fresh watercress
1/2 inch piece fresh ginger, skin removed
1/2 red delicious apple, skin on
1/4 cup almond milk

Place everything into a blender or food processor until smooth and serve in your favorite glass.
