Beet Detox Smoothie

This week the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness brings to you one of our favorite detox drinks! There are dozens of benefits from making your own detox drinks, from reducing weight loss, lowering inflammation, cleanses the liver, and promotes skin health. More water can be used if the smoothie is too thick. Also, the remaining water from cooked beet can be used. Check out the beet smoothie detox and let us know how you feel after!
