Rockin’ Red Smoothie: Vegan & Anti-Inflammatory

vegan-beet-smoothie-anti-inflammatory

A delicious vegan & anti-inflammatory solution for breakfast. This smoothie is full of anti-oxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals!

In response to the avalanche of green smoothie recipes that have infiltrated the pages of cookbooks ’round the world, I created this ultra-red smoothie recipe. I think it might literally explode with all of the amazing antioxidants from the acai, raspberries, and beets. Speaking of those bad-ass beets, think of them as red spinach—nutritionally speaking! Just like Popeye’s power food, this crimson vegetable is one of your best sources of both folate and betaine. These two nutrients work together to lower your blood levels of homocysteine, an inflammatory compound that can damage your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease. Plus, the natural pigments in beets called betacyanins have been proved to be potent cancer fighters! Serves 2 to 4

Ingredients

  • 1 small beet, peeled and chopped
  • 1 bunch of beet greens (from one beet)
