While not the most popular vegetable out there, beets are very nutritious and low in calories. For one, they contain a high-fiber content, which makes them healthy for promoting digestion, lowering blood sugar levels, and helping you feel more satisfied. Beets are also a good source of vitamin C, potassium, iron, folate, and manganese.

Since they are high in fiber, beets have a low glycemic index, making them safe to eat for those with blood sugar problems. The pigments in beets are also believed to be beneficial in fighting off inflammation.

Why avocados?

Who does not love good guacamole here and there? But why not have avocado in your drinks too? The truth is, avocados are a very versatile fruit that can lend themselves to create creamy textures without the added calories.

To start, avocados are high in vitamin C, E, K, vitamin A, and B complex vitamins. These are also high in potassium, magnesium, pantothenic acid, and omega 3 fatty acids. The type of fat in avocados is considered to be healthy, particularly because of the omegas that we all need in our diet, but so many of us do not get enough of it.  

Time to make this Beet and Avocado Smoothie!

Now that you know about the health benefits of beets and avocados, consider yourself ready to get your almond milk, cocoa powder, and stevia. You can substitute the almond milk with coconut milk, cashew milk, or any non-dairy milk of your choice.
