This pretty in pink vibrant beet berry orange smoothie is packed full of veggie and immune-boosting Vitamin C and antioxidants for a burst of nutrients to start your day!
Who’s the prettiest smoothie of them all? You can’t help but have a big smile on your face when you make this gorgeous coloured pink smoothie. I know looks aren’t everything when it comes to a delicious smoothie, it’s about the taste! But I can’t help and think about the tropics and sunshine when I make this beautiful smoothie, especially on those gloomy rainy fall days. So let’s turn up the beet! (sorry I had too!)
I know it may seem unusual to add beets to your smoothies (aren’t they for salads and borscht?), but they are an awesome way to add a ton of nutrients, like immune-boosting Vitamin C (which we all need during the cold months),, fibre and of course antioxidants from that deep ruby red hue. And lets not forget the detoxifying benefits which your liver will thank you for. Not only do beets add gorgeous colour to your smoothie, but they also add a slight sweetness which is boosted with the bananas and balanced with the tartness of raspberries and citrusy orange.
Keep in mind If you don’t have a high-speed blender, it may be a bit difficult to get a smooth consistency when using raw beets. But don’t worry, all you have to do is grate them right into the blender – this will make them easier to blend. Or, you can buy pre-cooked or frozen beets at your local grocery store and enjoy this recipe all year round.
