This beautiful dark purple smoothie is light and very delicious, without any hint of beet greens, yet it full of them! This smoothie can be a wonderfully sneaky way to serve vegetables to your children.

Beet greens are a great source of  immune-boosting vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, folate, fiber, and protein. They also contain minerals like potassium, copper, phosphorus, zinc, calcium  and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas).The betalin pigments in beet greens support the detoxification process.

As reported by the World’s Healthiest Foods:

“[Betaine’s]… presence in our diet has been associated with lower levels of several inflammatory markers, including C reactive protein, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor alpha. As a group, the anti-inflammatory molecules found in beets may eventually be shown to provide cardiovascular benefits in large-scale human studies, as well as anti-inflammatory benefits for other body systems.”
