Rich & Creamy Red Velvet Smoothie

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

This is a creamy red velvet chocolate smoothie — perfect for you to make for your honey on Valentine’s Day (or for yourself of course). It’s also perfect for those days when all you want is chocolate but also want to consume wholesome goodness! Beets are an excellent tonic for the liver and provide iron, magnesium, folate, potassium and nitrates. Nitrates are excellent for muscle energy and have been shown to improve muscle strength and endurance while exercising.
