RED BEET SMOOTHIE RECIPE
Made with raw beets, fruit, and greens, this smoothie has been life changing for me! The energy it gives helps keep me fueled to teach 3-4 hours of fitness classes back to back. I highly recommend this smoothie for so many reasons but mostly for the nutrition it contains. Making a batch and storing in airtight mason jars can allow you to grab and go! I keep mine for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. You can add fresh ginger, cilantro, jalapeño, etc. to it.
- 1-2 red beets. I use RAW beets. (a great way to save time is to cut beets in cubes and store in the freezer to have on hand)
- 1 Cup berries or mango (fresh or frozen)
- 1-2 Cup kale, beet greens, or spinach
- 1 grapefruit
- 1 small apple, cored.
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds or flax seeds (optional)
