It’s Springtime and summer isn’t far away, so I’ve definitely had detox on my mind. “Detox” is quite the buzz word and it’s all about lightening up, getting the junk out of our diet, and most importantly, supporting digestion and liver function.
This Strawberry Beet Smoothie requires only 4 ingredients and is so incredibly vibrant and pigmented with a gorgeous crimson red colour thanks to the beets! Here are two big benefits of this smoothie:
Beets: Beets are a very liver loving vegetable and contain a phytonutrient called betaine that helps support detoxification.
Chia Seeds: a great source of omega-3 fats and fibre for healthy digestion and preventing constipation. Regular bowel movements are essential for detox as toxins and debris need to be moved out of our body as efficiently as possible.
