Need a pre-workout energy boost? Then you need celebrity trainer Erin Oprea's Beet Juice Shots recipe in your life.
“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 stronger 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!”
