Acai and Beet Smoothie

Photography by Julie Morris

Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cups  roasted beets
  • 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.
