Unbeet-able Pre-Workout Smoothie

Beets are high in nitrates, which help our bodies to better utilize oxygen, which equates to better athletic performance and recovery. Beets are also great for cleansing and detoxifying the liver. Maca powder provides an added boost of energy and helps to improve hormonal balance. If coconut water is added, this ingredient helps to re-hydrate the cells with electrolytes!
