Beetroot & Ginger Detox smoothie
Makes 3-4 cups
1 Beet (stem removed, washed, quartered)
1 Apple, (stem removed, washed, quartered)
1/4 cup Carrots (tops removed, washed, loosely chopped)
1/2 cup Sunflower Shoots (rinsed, drained)
1 Tbsp Ginger (peeled)
1/2 cup Ice Cubes
Water (as needed to thin)
In a high-speed blender, add Beet, Apple, Carrots, Sunflower, Ginger, and Ice Cubes.
Add enough water to reach surface of produce and ice.
Pulse or blend on high speed until smooth (15-30 seconds); don’t overblend (friction causes it to ‘cook’).
Serve immediately; alternatively, store in freezer and thaw up to one hour before drinking.
