Beets. You either love 'em or hate 'em, right? I never ate them growing up, so I wasn't particularly a fan, but I started eating them pickled a few years ago and fell in love. Now I eat them whenever I get a chance! I know they can be messy, but I think their benefits outweigh the mess.
You'll want to make this smoothie if you're looking to support detoxification of your liver while helping to offset damage from toxins in the body being released from the liver.
Whether you love or hate them, you can't taste them in this smoothie! Go ahead, give it a try. And why not? If anything it's pretty to look at ;)
