This smoothie contains some of the best detox fruits and veggies like beets and acai berries, and will have you feeling refreshed and energized. Beets contain betaine, a compound known to help protect against liver damage, and help the liver process fats. Acai berries are a detoxer’s dream. They are packed with fiber, vitamin C, antioxidants, and anthocyanins, which work together to protect cells from damage. Beet the winter blues with this sweet and delicious drink!
