Cooler temps and back to school mean the start of cold + flu season is upon us. And the easiest, most delicious way to fight off all the nasties is with a colorful, nutrient-rich smoothie.

This particular one features a mega dose of antioxidants with raspberries, beets, and camu powder — a superfood berry from Peru that contains 60% more vitamin C than an orange.

If you’ve made this smoothie before, you know I love blending in beets for their detoxifying and grounding properties.
