Yes, I post a lot of smoothie recipes. Get used to it! This beets and berries detox smoothie has been my morning breakfast routine for 3 weeks straight now. I can’t get enough of it! It’s sweet, it’s creamy, it’s a little earthy, but mostly it’s amazingly healthy. You can feel your body thank you with every sip. Beets do wonders for your blood and digestive system, plus they are full of anti-oxidants!
We’ve got frozen strawberries and blueberries, a banana, some chia seeds, almond milk, and BEETS of course! I find these pre-cooked beets in my produce section which are perfect for this. I think frozen or raw would work too, just make sure you have a good blender! I just love how easy the pre-cooked Love Beets are to pop in, especially at 6:30 in the morning when I have mere moments to get out the door.
If you love beets, you’re going to be OBSESSED with the beet-strawberry combination here. I. Can. Not. Get. Enough. Are you iffy about beets? Give it a try. Yes, you’ll get a little bit of the earthy beet taste, but the sweet berries do a great job of counteracting the flavor, and the creaminess and perfect pink color will win your heart over. And if you hate beets, why did you even click on this?
Look how pretttttttttty. I just like want to paint my walls that color. Or find that color sweater. I just love it.Also shout out to the Nutri Ninja Pro Blender, Silver (BL456) for having single-serve cups that get me out the door without washing out a blender (ugh) and for having the power to whip frozen fruit and raw beets to smoothy, creamy perfection without breaking. Hallelujah.
My final thoughts on this: I like to add a couple Tbsp. of chia seeds or a couple scoops of flavorless protein powder, (sometimes both!) to give this smoothie the oomph it needs to keep me full until lunch. Highly recommend.
- 1 banana
- 1 beet, cooked, (I buy pre-cooked beets at the store, but a scrubbed, diced raw beet would work too)
- ¼ cup frozen blueberries
- 6 frozen strawberries
- ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk, plus more if needed
- Optional: 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
- Optional: 2 Tbsp. flavorless protein powder
- Add everything to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more almond milk if it's too thick to blend.
