We recently took a liking to mixing veggies into our smoothies. If you are not fond of most vegetables, this is a great way to get that nutrition that you need by sneaking it into your fruit smoothie. We were inspired by a certain Jamba Juice smoothie to give beets a try. We formulated our own recipe, and the texture is somewhat unique, but very yummy! Give veggies a try in your smoothie. If you are not wanting to risk it as much, we might recommend substituting one of the beets for an extra apple. Hope you enjoy! (*A side note: beets very easily stain your skin, countertops, and clothing. When working with them, use caution and wear clothing you don’t mind getting a little messy.)
2 c. Mixed berries
1 c. Coconut Water
1. Peel/chop beets and place them into blender first. This allows them to get blended throughly since they are more firm than the rest of the ingredients. Also, I would recommend wearing gloves when peeling and chopping the beets because the pigment in them will stain your hands and whatever else it touches.
2. Place bananas, apple, and mixed berries in blender.
3. Finally pour the coconut water over the top of everything and blend throughly.
4. Garnish with goji berries. Enjoy!
