Beets are a perfect food to help with inflammation especially when combined with ginger. These two root plants go perfectly together. In addition to helping reduce inflammation, beets support the liver during phase 2 detoxification and provide other forms of antioxidants.
I chose to cook my beets first and peel them to help reduce the earthy beet flavour. I wanted something a little sweeter today. This smoothie is very similar to a beet ginger juice but thicker because I haven't just extracted the juice, so I get a bonus with a bit of extra fibre.
