We absolutely adore this smoothie’s bright pink colour, courtesy of the phytonutrients in the beets and strawberries. Fruit gives the smoothie a sweet flavour, and you’ll be happily surprised by how the citrus calms the earthiness of the beets—so much so that you can barely taste them. Ginger gives this a little extra spicy kick, which will help altered taste buds and nausea. 

NUTRITION NOTE: The turmeric in this smoothie pro-vides potent anti-inflammatory properties, and the pinch of pepper helps increase the absorbability of the turmeric.
