For a light, energizing, and refreshing snack on your way to the gym skip the stove and reach for the blender.
The star of this simple smoothie is the beet. The beatine found in beet aids liver function, and the iron and B-complex vitamins help in fighting an iron-deficiency. They're also packed with nitrates known to significantly lower blood pressure and thereby increase blood flow.
As a booster toss in a bottle of Living Juice-- for this recipe we recommend Carrot Kick. We tried it ourselves, and the popping flavors combined with the increased nutrients make for a great combination. Better blood flow means better athletic performance, so combine the below ingredients in a blender and get to work.
All you need is:
1 small pre-cooked beet
1 organic blood orange, peeled
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
6 oz freshly squeezed organic orange juice
1/2 cup ice
Living Juice Carrot Kick
Place ingredients into the blender, blend to desired thickness, and enjoy.
