The Finished Drink

Serve immediately and enjoy. Think of it as a super tasty nutrition bomb packed with nutrients and fiber. Although, we drink it because it tastes good. If you have kids who don’t like to eat fruits and vegetables this a great way to sneak some into their diet.

  • I call this an “anti-aging” smoothie because it’s so full of antioxidants! Also, I’ve grated the ingredients before making the smoothie and it makes the texture a lot better. Love the recipe!

  • Chey

    Exactly what I was looking for – a simple beet smoothie with what I had on hand! Thank you for posting this. It is absolutely delicious! I did add more honey because I have a sweet tooth :)

  • Maggie

    Loved the combination. An inch of ginger really kicked up the flavour. I found no need for honey
