The Red “Green” Smoothie


Alright, here is a delicious red “green” smoothie inspired by the beets in my fridge that were soon going to perish. I had originally purchased them to make a beet-nut dip but time has been tight and I needed to eat (drink) them straight away! I had tried berry beet smoothies before, but I decided to experiment with a different, less orthodox mixture, and it turned out great!

2 beets, peeled
3-4 kale leafs (mine were frozen)
1 banana (frozen again)
1/3 pineapple
scoop of green powder (any will do, but this one was Barlean’s)
1 cup of water
I would add ice if you don’t use frozen ingredients šŸ™‚

Blend in a high power blender until smooth and enjoy the beautiful colour this delivers! This really turned out better than I expected. Very rich in beet flavour, so if this is not your thing, you could reduce to 1 beet.
