Ok, so your childhood memory of beets might come straight from a can. We’ve been there. Today we challenge you to turn your bad beet experience around with this tasty and nutritious shake made with Vi-Shape® and fortified with antioxidants and vitamin C from beets along with other beneficial vitamins and nutrients.
Red Beet, Carrot & Kale Vi-Shape Shake with Hemp Seeds
- 2 scoops Vi-Shape Shake Mix
- 1 red beet (raw)
- 1 apple
- 1 carrot (raw)
- ½ orange (peeled)
- 1 cup kale
- 2 tbsp. hemp seeds
Did you know? Little, but mighty, hemp seeds dish up 9 essential amino acids, which your body cannot naturally produce. Amino acids are the building blocks that make up protein and can help fight fat buildup, strengthen muscle development and offer an immune boost. Hemp seeds also contain omega fatty acids, which promote heart health. Eat hemp seeds raw, ground or sprouted in shakes, baked goods and salads.
- ½ cup ice
- ½ cup water
In a juicer, combine all ingredients until well blended and smooth. Garnish with additional hemp seeds as desired.
Beet Eater Beware
Beets are high in many vitamins and minerals like potassium; magnesium; iron; vitamins A, B and C; beta-carotene; folic acid and more. The savory greens that grow above ground are edible and pack additional nutrients. Clearly, beets are your best friends. We recommend incorporating beets into your diet sparingly, however, as they are high in natural sugar and count as a carbohydrate.
