IMG_8662.JPG

It’s a heat wave in Boston. Cool down with this vibrant Berry Beet Smoothie. Look at that color! The magenta is amazing, and you can’t even taste the beet. The mango and berries leave it perfectly sweet. Enjoy this smoothie as breakfast or a snack – -it’s utterly refreshing either way.

Ingredients (serves 1).

  • 1 small beet, peeled and steamed
  • 1/4 c frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 c frozen mango
  • 1 c unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1-2 T plant-based coconut protein powder like Tone It Up’s (optional)
  • Ice

Directions.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add milk and ice as needed.
  2. Pour into a glass. (Carefully! — beets will stain.)
  3. Enjoy!
