The benefits of beets are huge: They help to purify the blood, enhance circulation, and support the kidneys . . . and that’s just the beginning. Unfortunately, not everyone likes beets. This recipe leans on the inherent sweetness and creaminess of roasted beets, but is balanced with citrus and acai flavors. A delicious and unique healthy treat.
