Red Beet Smoothie

Red Beet Smoothie

Sneak in more vegetables in your diet with this red beet smoothie. It’s made with ingredients that you can easily find!

I know it’s difficult for us to get our daily servings of fruits and vegetables sometimes. Even I struggle with it. That’s why I created this collection of vegetable-based smoothies to get us to eat more vegetables every day.

Ingredients

  • 1 small red beet, trimmed and peeled
  • 1 large apple, cored
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 cup carrot juice
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2/3 cup frozen sliced peaches
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced

Preparation

  1. Roughly chop beet, apple, and celery.
  2. Add all ingredients in a blender, and mix until smooth. Taste the smoothie and see if the sweetness is to your liking. Feel free to add a little more fruit if you want something sweeter. Serve immediately.

You can store smoothie in a jar for up to 2 days.

Ohh I’ve never put beets in my smoothies before but this looks incredible! That color is EVERYTHING!! Can’t wait to try!

Beets– These bright purple root veggies get their pigment from antioxidant betalains that not only ward off cancer and other degenerative diseases, but promote healthy, young-looking skin by boosting collagen production. Beets bolster immunity, manufacture red blood cells and promote liver detoxification as well. They are also naturally high in folate, great for pregnant women since folate prevents neural tube defects in growing fetuses.
