Red Carpet Smoothie
This refreshing smoothie is a delicious and easy way to get the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants your body needs. During a flare-up, consider decreasing or skipping the agave nectar. And if you’re sensitive to seeded fruits, use caution when adding the strawberries and blackberries. If you can’t find beet juice, a great substitution is equal parts cranberry and orange juice.
