This fall smoothie is perfect as we move into the season. The beets and cherries are both antioxidant rich, good for lowering blood pressure and for easing adrenal fatigue, especially with the added dash of cinnamon. The avocado balances out the natural sugars with good fat and the lemon adds a pop of brightness.
This is so easy to satisfying to make and nourish the body.
