Mixed Berry and Beetroot Smoothie.

Beetroots are very high in in antioxidants, have an excellent source of folates, vitamin C and vitamin A.Beetroot when consumed uncooked aids in the protection of heart disease, strokes, to lower cholesterol and helps with anti aging.
We try and eat beetroot in salads and also use it in cooking but since beetroots are better eaten raw, I also sneak them into my smoothies. The earthy taste compliments most fruit but I particularly like to add beetroot to apples and berries. This mixed berry and beetroot smoothie has a lovely fresh earthy taste.
