A lower sugar, lower carbohydrate smoothie that is rich in colour and full of antioxidants and minerals. Beets are particularly rich in folate. One 2-inch diameter beet contains up to 22% RDA of folate. Beets are also a great source of copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and potassium. A small beet provides 35 calories and 1 gram of protein. Beets have been used for centuries in folk medicine. The pigment in red beets, betanin, is said to have antioxidant properties.
