BEET THE HEAT SMOOTHIE

Standard

Let’s face it. Its the middle of summer and sometimes its all to easy to give in and get a cold drink or smoothie from your local smoothie shop. Many of those stores add additional sugar to their drinks or artificial sweeteners. Besides who wants to go outside into the heat when you can satisfy your thirst for something cool from the comfort of your own home. This recipe not only is healthy but is  a delicious way to hydrate yourself.
