Beets are very healthy for cleaning the colon out! It’s a great way to detox if you’re having trouble having a bowel movement…but if you’re eating an abundant amount of vegetables and fruits you should not have those issues! To prepare I cut one beet into cubes, cut the stems and leaves as well. Place in bowl to wash off. Added to blender, with a little blueberries and two dates to sweetened up some. I also, added powder chlorella. Added water and pulsed really well to break down beets, stems and leaves. Mixed very well! If you want to add ice to make it cold, you can. I just drank it warm! It made about two 8oz full jars. Enjoy!!!
