Strawberry Beet Detox Smoothie

by | Apr 17, 2018 | Beverages, Detox

This Strawberry Beet Detox Smoothie requires only 4 ingredients and is so vibrantly pigmented with a gorgeous crimson red colour thanks to some liver-loving beets.

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.

    Tried the strawberry and beetroot smoothie this afternoon. I found the beetroot taste slightly strange together with the strawberries as I normally eat them as a salad, but got used to it. Today is probably one of the last weekend days where the sun is out and I could sit out after walking our dog so would not use anything frozen when it is cold outside but I am sure this would work with defrosted strawberries. I have all the ingredients in to make the other two detox smoothies, so very curious how this will work out. Thank you for sharing Meghan!

      The beets and strawberries together can be a bit strange at first! You can use a little less beet if you prefer. Enjoy the other two, I LOVE the orange turmeric smoothie 🙂

    Thank you for these fun smoothies! My fiancé and I just bought our vitamix so we’re having a lot of fun! A high powered blender really changes a smoothie. We’ve made both the orange-banana and beet/strawberry. Very good 🙂

    I tried the strawberry and beetroot one and the beetroot tasted a little bit weird but I love the health benefits and I drank all of it so I guess I got used to it, really liked the recipe despite I don’t think its really my thing 🙂

    Hi Meghan. I was curious if using the water from the beet prep would be of any benefit? I’ve heard boiling creates nutrient loss? What are your thoughts? I have NAFLD and I am trying to change my eating and start by detoxing to reverse or prevent further damage or worse! (cirrhosis or cancer)
    Thank you in advance
