Very Berry Beet Smoothie
  • ½ cup peeled and chopped cooked beets (about 1 medium beet)
  • 2 cups mixed frozen berries
  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 large handful of ice
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, about 60 seconds.
* Beets: You can either buy cooked, peeled beets or prepare them yourself. To do so, either steam or roast. To roast, place washed and scrubbed beets in a small baking dish and add water to come ½ inch up the sides of the beets. Cover with aluminum foil and place in a 375 degree oven. Bake until very tender, 45 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. 
Peel the beets and roughly chop, discarding the skins. To steam, peel and wash the beets. Cut into chunks and steam on the stovetop until tender.
