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!
Chia is an incredible superfood whether you're detoxing or not, I encourage you to eat them regularly.

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

How long will the pudding be good for in the fridge, without adding the beet juice or berries?Reply
Hey Veronica! It could last about 3-4 days if you wanted to meal prep all of the chia pudding base at the beginning of the week and add the toppings later. It does become a bit more thick/glue-y, so just be mindful of that. You can usually thin it out with almond or coconut milk though! Rachel - Joyous Health Team
OBSESSED with the color of this! Looks so tasty, not to forget healthy! This is right up my street- will definitely be trying this!Reply
Hey Ashley! Isn't it beautiful?! Just imagine what all of the benefits that vibrant phytonutrient-packed colour is going to do for your body too! Hope you enjoy it :) Rachel - Joyous Health Team
Could you use beet kvass in this instead or would it end up weird?Reply
I don't see why not! Good for the gut :)
