Beet Banana Berry Smoothie

If you’re thinking you don’t like beets, you have to try them in a smoothie or juice form.  Beets are on of the most nutrient dense foods available!   We’ve blended a healthy, yet tasty beet smoothie for you to try.

Note:  Drinking smoothies is a simple way to get in your daily dose of  fruit and vegetables.  

Benefits of  Beet Smoothies:

  • helps fight chronic disease
  • relieves skin problems
  •  helps prevent cancer
  • improves eye health
  • known as natures viagra. 
  • Helps heal gout
  • Anti- inflammatory properties
  • Helps lower blood pressure
  • Natural energy booster
  • Helps improve digestion

 

Ingredients:  

  • 1 large beet or 2 small 
  • 1 whole banana
  • 2 cups organic spinach
  • 6 strawberries
  • 1 fresh lime (juice only)
  • 8 1/2 onces of Coconut water

 

Beet Berry

 

Instructions:

  1. Peel  beets and cut into chunks. Peel banana. Toss all ingredients into the blender, pour in coconut water &  blend until smooth.  **You can add ice cubes for a chilled smoothie**
  2. With this recipe, I was able to fill 4 1/2  small Mason Jars.  
  3. I drank the 1/2 before the picture 🙂

NOTE: I like to make several smoothies in advance for meal prep.  Saves time doing it that way. If you’d like to make 1 serving, please use less ingredients.
