This vibrant beetroot smoothie combines sweet and earthy beets with berries, bananas and orange juice for a well-balanced flavour. Look for packaged cooked beets where prepared fruits and vegetables are sold. Beets are high in betalains, an antioxidant that may help reduce inflammation in the body. Other nutrient-rich ingredients add even more anti-inflammatory power, like anthocyanins in blueberries and gingerols found in ginger.

Mango Raspberry Smoothie

A squeeze of lemon juice adds bright flavor to this frozen fruit smoothie. The mango provides plenty of sweetness without adding any juice, but if it’s too tart for you, a touch of agave will do the trick.
