We’ve had a bunch of beets in the house lately and while I know a lot of people like to roast them, I still haven’t looked into the best recipes to do so because it’s even easier to add them to smoothie.

If you’re curious about the benefits of beets, you can read more here and here. Oh, and don’t forget to use the beet greens also when you’re juicing or making a smoothie because they too add a powerful burst of nutrients.

Now onto the good stuff, the recipe for a delicious smoothie.

And the Beet Goes On Smoothie

1 small beet with greens (this should be the size of a golf ball, tops)
Handful of grapes (about 10 or so)
2 slices pineapple
Handful of fresh spinach
2 – 3 mini carrots
2 broccoli florets
4 – 5 pieces of frozen mango
3 medium-size frozen strawberries

What are your favorite smoothie recipes that use beets?
