Healthy Living: Banana Beet Smoothie


Banana Beet SmoothieI’ll confess: the first thing that drew me to this recipe was the pretty pink color in the picture on the recipe!

I’m easy that way.

Then, I read that it contained beets, and I wasn’t going to try it. However, beets are often called one of the world’s healthiest foods. They have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties.

They are high in folate, manganese and potassium. They also provide significant fiber and copper!

I can’t even taste “beets” in this smoothie recipe. Try it and you’ll see! 

Banana Beet Smoothie

Ingredients:
4 small raw beets, peeled and cut in bite-sized pieces (if your blender is not strong enough, steam beets first for easier blending)
1 small banana (for a thicker smoothie, use a frozen banana)

1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice

Directions:
Place all ingredients in the blend. Blend until smooth.
