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.
We all know that blueberries are a rich source of antioxidant and 1 cup has 8 grams of fiber!
1/2 cup unsweetened hemp milk
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen red beets
Vegan Vanilla Complete Protein powder – 2 scoops
Put in blender and blend until smooth and creamy! Enjoy!
