Whose heart wouldn’t skip a ‘beet’ just taking in the gorgeous, vibrant color of this berry and beet smoothie? Simple to make, it’s a delectable way to celebrate Mother’s Day–and any day–that the whole family will enjoy. Best of all, this berrylicious beverage comes with some radiant health benefits, not least with the inclusion of our ORGANIC INDIA Shatavari.
An Ayurvedic herbal supplement for women that supports healthy hormone and reproductive functions, Shatavari can also help relieve stress, fight oxidative stress, maintain healthy blood sugar metabolism, and support a healthy inflammatory response. Although Shatavari is best known for supporting women’s wellness and vitality, it has also been used for men in combination with adaptogenic Ashwagandha for all-around hormonal support and balance. Feel free to combine both, or switch up supplements of choice, in this versatile recipe!
Beloved berries, a joy to snack on, are delicious, nutritious, and packed full of antioxidants. Key to the gemlike pop of color in this smoothie, beets are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, including folate, which plays a key role in controlling damage to blood vessels, helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. While beetroot isn’t quite so lucky as berries when it comes to universal love, this luscious blend is sure to convert any skeptics and give Mother’s Day an extra special glow.
