Looking for ways to sneak a little more dark green action into your life? This is it… After one sip of this delicious shake you’ll be so lost in the zesty, citrus-infused chocolate flavor and thick, creamy texture to ever suspect that hidden within is one of the world’s most healthy and nutrient dense foods: beet greens. Try it out for yourself – in doing so you’ll benefit from loads of Vitamins K, C, A and minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and copper – all of which are found abundantly in beet greens!
