Beets are one of the most nutrient-dense root vegetables we can get our hands on. They have an incredible amount of health benefits – such as vitamin c, potassium and fiber – which are all essential for healthy bones and liver function. Besides throwing your beets in the juicer or in a smoothie, they are a sweet addition to salads and make for an addicting party dip! This recipe is a kid-friendly, party-pleasing WIN:

3 medium-sized beets, rinsed
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp agave
1/4 cup filtered water
Sea salt


  1. Throw your beets in a large pot with water and boil for about 40 minutes, until fork-tender
  2. Once they’re cool, peel the skin away (it does not have to be perfect!)
  3. Add to a food processor with walnuts, agave, and  a pinch of sea salt
  4. Blend well, then after about 10 seconds, add the filtered water
  5. Blend again until creamy
  6. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and pinch of flaky sea salt
