Mixing vegetables into a smoothie is a quick and easy way to get them into your diet. Nitrates in beetroot juice may enhance athletic performance. The nitrates reduce the amount of oxygen your muscles need, giving you more stamina.
If your blender isn’t powerful enough to cut through raw beets, roasting them is a great way to soften them and intensify their sweetness. To roast, scrub the beets and dice them into 1/2 inch chunks. Scatter onto a baking pan and roast for 30 min at 400 degrees F.
