Beet Berry Chia Cups

—  found in  Food  —

Note from Joy: This recipe is from the healthy and beautiful Sisley of The Pure Life. She has featured my carrot cake squares on her blog with a giveaway for my book -- woohoo. You can enter here. 

These Beet Berry Chia Cups are the best addition to your Joyous Detox lifestyle!

Packed with antioxidants, which are essential during the detoxification process, these chia cups make for the best breakfast or on-the-go snack. They are loaded with blackberries and raspberries, which are not only great for detoxing joyously, but also help promote healthy skin, support the immune system and combat free radicals.

Chia seeds are a good source of essential fatty acids and protein as well, which is especially important during Phase II of liver detoxification (also known as "conjugation"). This is the part where amino acid fueled molecules in our liver, attach onto toxins, neutralize them and make them water soluble so they can be excreted easily through urine or sweat.

I also love adding beet juice to this recipe for a pre-workout snack, as it contains nitric oxide which encourages more blood flow to the muscles, help us increase our energy levels for a healthy, happy heart!

Directions don't say where or when to add the beet juice.

Where does the beet juice come in? Looks like it is just poured on top with the berries?

How long will the pudding be good for in the fridge, without adding the beet juice or berries?

Could you use beet kvass in this instead or would it end up weird?
