Beets and Berries Smoothie

If you visit your local farmer’s market in the early spring and summer, you’ll discover an abundance of organic beets, as well as bright red organic strawberries. These nutritious ingredients (along with addition of avocado and unsweetened almond milk) blend up beautifully to create a gorgeously hued and healthy Paleo smoothie that tastes just as good as it looks. This unique berry smoothie is packed full of antioxidants and healthy fats, making it perfect for a quick breakfast or snack. Be careful when handling this beet smoothie however…as beets will stain anything and everything that they come into contact with!

  1. Hi I have a question – is the large beet raw or does it need to be cooked? If cooked, what way do you suggest? I really want to try this but don’t want to ruin it by doing it incorrectly

    1. Hi Carol,

      It should be raw, but I am sure you could use a cooked one too, if that’s what you have on hand. Ideally, peel a raw beet and then use for the recipe.
