I have become a huge fan of this delicious smoothie from Run Fast. Eat Slow. It can be made pretty quickly- especially if you’re using a Vitamix and don’t need to cook the beet! I did make one modification to the recipe yesterday by leaving out the frozen banana- sometimes bananas in a smoothie make it too filling for me to drink pre-workout. It was still satisfying, just not as thick.
1 cooked beet, peeled and quartered
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 small frozen banana
1 cup unsweetened almond milk or other milk of choice
1 cup coconut water
1-inch knob fresh ginger, peeled (use edge of spoon)
1 Tbsp almond butter
In a blender, place the beet, blueberries, banana, milk, coconut water, ginger, and almond butter. Blend on high speed for several minutes until smooth.
