Oprea’s Beet Juice Shots contain eight beets, 1-inch piece of ginger, and three lemons. The concoction is similar to a lemonade “with a kick,” thanks to the natural sweetness from beets, acidity from the lemons, and hint of spice from the ginger.

While this three-ingredient recipe is healthy on its own, The 4×4 Diet author also adds six scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to help support stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints.
