Beet and Citrus Smoothie

 

Beets are good for you, especially if you lift. In addition to vitamins and minerals, they lower blood pressure, fight inflammation, and boost stamina. They also boost nitric oxide and improve muscle performance. This smoothie is a good way to get them; it also gives you some citrus and sea salt for vitamin C and electrolytes, which you’ll need if you are sweating a lot.

For the oranges, I like to mix 1 ruby and 1 Florida orange, but feel free to experiment.

Beet Smoothie

  • 1 whole beet, peeled and roughly chopped
  • Beet greens from 1 beet
  • 2 oranges, juiced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Ice water, to taste

Add ingredients to a blender and blend until you reach the desired consistency.
