After a week of being away from home and perhaps not eating as clean as I may normally, this smoothie is a refreshing way to get back into the swing of things. Beets and spinach both have cleansing properties and the chia, should you choose to add it, is full of fiber, calcium and iron, along with lots of Omega-3s for some brain power.
In blender, combine:
1 raw beet, peeled and cubed, 50 g
1 handful of beet greens, 30 g
1 handful of baby spinach, 32 g
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
fresh ginger, peeled, 1-2 cubes 1” in diameter
8 ounces unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon chia bran, optional
1 tablespoon chia seeds, optional
Drink immediately. Nutritional info, below:
