Berry Beet Smoothie

Tue. April 25, 2017

Although all the seasons are important, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t revel in all the benefits of spring! This recipe from Nutrition & Integrative Health student Jessica Waller will help you kick off the season with a smoothie that has that “spring” feeling. Nutrient-rich beet juice is blended with bright, energizing ingredients like carrots, blueberries, pineapple, and baby greens, to help you feel refreshed and revitalized!

Makes 2 20-ounce smoothies

1 1/2 cups frozen organic blueberries*

1 cup frozen organic pineapple*

1/2 cup shredded organic carrots*

1 cup organic baby kale or baby spinach*

2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger*

1/4 cup hemp hearts*

1-2 tablespoons MCT oil or coconut oil

1 cup beet juice (Trader Joe's sells beet juice in the refrigerated section) 

1 cup filtered water

pinch of salt
 

Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend on smoothie setting.

*Meal planning tip: Make smoothie freezer bags by adding starred ingredients to a ziplock bag and storing in freezer for convenience. Pull one out and add remaining ingredients.
