This smoothie is designed to support full digestion of fat. It contains high amounts of betaine from the beet leaves which helps create bile in your liver. You'll find lots of bitter foods (lemon, beet leaves, and chocolate) that stimulate lipase enzymes and even more bile to break down fats. The avocado and sprouted almonds are made up of easy-to-digest fats. The figs and honey add a sweet flavor and extra digestive enzymes. Plant-based protein powder completes the smoothie, making it a nutritious meal or satiating snack.
