My newest smoothie creation is made up of unsweetened hemp milk, beet’s and blueberries. Of course I add my favorite protein powder, Vegan Complete which has 15 grams of protein along with fiber.

Beetroot is a rich source of phytochemical compounds  that includes ascorbic acid, carotenoids, phenolic acids and flavonoids. Beetroot is also one of the few vegetables that contain a group of highly bioactive pigments known as betalains. A number of investigations have reported betalains to have high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities. This has sparked interest in a possible role for beetroot in clinical pathologies characterized by oxidative stress and chronic inflammation such as liver disease.
