The following recipe is not only delicious and an amazing colour, it is bursting with nutrition! The use of raw beet provides liver friendly betalain pigments (otherwise destroyed by heat) as well as B vitamins, iron, and betaine - all blood building and cardiovascular friendly nutrients. Cherries contain antioxidant anthocyanin pigments as well as melatonin important for relaxation and sleep. Both chia and coconut water are mineral rich.
