Blueberry Beet Smoothie
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 serving
Lightly sweet, refreshing, and full of antioxidants!
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup plain yogurt (regular, or greek)
  • 1 1-inch piece raw red beet, peeled
  • 2-4 TBSP milk, or almond milk
  • Optional: a drizzle of honey for extra sweetness
  • Optional: a handful of ice, if you want a thicker smoothie
  • Optional: 1-2 small mint leaves, to make it even more refreshing
  1. Place all of the ingredients except the milk in a blender, and blend until smooth. Add the milk a little at a time, until the smoothie has reached the desired consistency. If you want a thicker smoothie, add a handful of ice. Taste, and add a little honey if you'd like it sweeter.
Note: if you don't have a good, high-speed blender, you may find that the skins from the blueberries don't get blended as smoothly as you would like. If the texture is a little rough, you can add ice to thicken it up, which will make any bits less noticeable, or you can pass the smoothie through a sieve to remove any pieces the blender couldn't manage.

You can use fresh berries instead of frozen, but in this case I recommend opting for a handful of ice to thicken the smoothie and cool it down.
