Add Erin Oprea's Beet Juice Shots To Your Pre-Workout Routine

by Grace Gavilanes - February 17, 2019

Looking for a pre-workout energy boost? Then you need to make celebrity trainer Erin Oprea's Beet Juice Shots recipe!

“It’s my favorite recipe that I take every day,” the fitness guru behind Carrie Underwood’s strong physique tells Vital Proteins® of her pick-me-up beverage. “This is what keeps my energy going. It keeps me training all day,” she adds of the bright red drink.

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 healthy hair, skin, nails and joints.**

“I take two of these a day,” Oprea says of her Beet Juice Shots. “[I take] one in the morning after I have breakfast … and then the second I take about an hour before I work out. Because I want to have a good workout!”

Prep for your workout with a taste of the superfood beverage. Get the recipe below.
