This is one of our favorite smoothies that we whip up about once a week. This Wild Root Smoothie is loaded with root vegetables, including beets, carrots, turnips and fresh ginger.

Beets have been used medicinally since the days of the Ancient Romans, who recognized the colorful root as a potent aphrodisiac. Beets are high in boron which aids in the production of human sex hormones. There are naturally occurring nitrates in beets which can also increase blood flow, which is code for “awesome” whether you’re a guy or a gal.  

Here are a few more benefits of the powerhouse root veggies in this smoothie:

Carrots are packed with vitamin A and beta-carotene, and are known for improving vision, protecting against cancer, slowing aging, promoting healthy skin, preventing infection, and cleansing the body.

Beets are loaded with vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorous, iron, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and beta-cyanine.

Turnips boost your intake of vitamins C, B-2, B-3, B-9, E, K, as well as magnesium, potassium phosphorous, and zinc.

Ginger improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body, making it a great addition to this smoothie. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and works wonders on upset tummies.

And greens? Well, we all know that they’re basically the healthiest thing on earth. 🙂

    • We’ve tried both – usually lightly cooking beets/turnips/cabbage/etc. makes it a little easier on the stomach. But see how you do with raw beets – you’ll know in a few hours! 🙂

    1/2 tbsp ginger powder
    1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
    1/2 tbsp cinnamon powder
    1/2 tbsp pepper
    fresh rosemary leaves
    fresh basil leaves
    fresh sage leaves
    fresh oregano
    pinch of cloves powder
    1 tbsp rhododendron juice
    1 tbsp ghee
    1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
    scoop of whey protein powder

    put everything in blender, pour freshly brewed organic coffee and blend. liquid thickness is your choice.
