This simple smoothie is overflowing with so many health benefits, it just might be better than a pot of gold! Golden beets are very mild and sweet compared to their red counterpart. Cara cara oranges are sweet and tangy, providing the perfect contrast to the earthy taste of beets. These oranges also load this smoothie with vitamin C and folic acid, keeping your immunity strong and heart protected. Cara cara oranges are a cross between the Washington navel and the Brazilian Bahia navel and are known for their pinkish red color.
