Health benefits of this beet smoothie
Dietary fiber is what your gut bacteria feed on so that in turn they can produce short-chain fatty acids that are essential for your health in general!
Dietary fiber is also what makes you evacuate without strain! So if you are having constipation, this as a great smoothie to start with because not only apricots are sweet but they help in improving digestion.
This smoothie contains anti-inflammatory properties, making it an ideal smoothie for us who are fighting chronic inflammation! Apricots are a good source of catechins which are great for fighting inflammation.
Apricots are primarily a good source of vitamin A.
You'll get the anti-inflammatory and antioxidants from beetroots which are high in betalains. These betalains are mostly found on the skin, so choosing young beets that you don't need to peel would be the ideal.
Beetroot is a very good source of minerals like;
You'll enjoy the benefits of cucumber which is high in vitamins C, K, and B.
Tips to make the best beet smoothie
- Make sure the apricots are very ripe
- Soak the cashew nuts to soften them, ideally leave them soaked the whole night
- Choose new or young beets, the red ones are perfect for the color and also for health benefits
- We've made this smoothie with water, almond milk, soy milk, and coconut milk. All weren't tasting the same! So play around till you get the best flavor that'll love... We find coconut giving the best results.
- Don't peel or deseed the cucumber, the skin holds the most nutrients
- Add bananas if you want, but try not completely replacing the apricots, they add the tart flavor that's awesomely delicious, besides, they bring different health benefits altogether.
So, my dear, I hope you gonna love this anti-inflammatory red beet smoothie. I believe that if you add it to your weekly menu, you can see a huge outcome in the course of a short time.
