This joint smoothing smoothie is quick and easy to whip up.
Cayenne pepper, ginger, and garlic are excellent remedies for inflammation that causes pain. The remainder of the ingredients in this drink hold a storehouse of nutrients.
One of these ingredients is sweet raw beets. Please be aware that beet juice can leave bright purple stains. The good news is these stains are water-soluble and usually come out quite readily if they have not had time to dry.
How do you cut beets for smoothies?
Scrub your beet with a vegetable brush, cut off the very top and bottom. Then I usually cut the half into quarters so that they blend more easily.
So if your joints are aching today, whip up this joint soothing smoothie.
I use my Vitamix blender and it’s ready in an instant.
Let me show you how easy it is to make this smoothie.
