Photography by Julie Morris
- 3/4 Cups roasted beets
- 2 oranges, peeled, de-seeded, and segmented
- 1 Cup unsweetened almond milk
- 3 Tablespoons acai powder
- 2 Cups ice
- Sweetener, to taste
The benefits of beets are huge: They help to purify the blood, enhance circulation, and support the kidneys... and that’s just the beginning. Unfortunately, not everyone likes beets. This recipe leans on the inherent sweetness and creaminess of roasted beets, but is balanced with citrus and acai flavors. A delicious and unique healthy treat.
