You can’t beet this red blend! Get it? You know I had to do it haha 😉 I call this the Red Dragon because it has an unexpected bite at the finish. Let’s carry on to whats inside my super stylish mason jar.
- 2 medium apples
- 4 large carrots
- 2 beets
- 1 bunch kale
- 5 inch piece of ginger
- 3 ounces water
Yields two 12 oz servings.
Here’s why you should care. Take a moment and consider your current food intake. How many times in the last month have you had beets? Yeah…how about in the last week? It goes without saying, but I’ll give it to you straight– eat more beets! Your liver function will improve to detoxify the body. Moreover, you’ll get a healthy dose of manganese which is responsible for forming connective tissue and bones. Annnd may even help balance your sex hormones.
The apples add natural sweetness.
Carrots offer beta-carotene.
The ever popular kale is chock full of various vitamins and minerals. Google it.
And ginger definitely gives this blend a nice kick. I basically add it to everything because I love the way it tastes. #givemealltheginger
What about the water? It tames bitterness, keeps you hydrated, and makes the experience much more enjoyable.
