Servings: 2 (Smoothies) Category: Smoothie Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegan Freezer Friendly 1 Month (in ice cube trays) Does it keep? 2 Days

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup peeled + chopped raw beet (organic when possible)
  • 1 ⅓ cup frozen strawberries (if fresh, add ice // organic when possible)
  • 1/4 ripe frozen banana (optional // peeled + sliced)
  • 2/3 cup fresh apple juice (recipe in our cookbook!)
  • Fresh mint or shredded coconut (for garnish // optional)

Instructions

  1. Add beet, strawberries, banana (optional for sweetness) and apple juice to a blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed.
  2. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more banana for sweetness, apple juice to thin, or strawberries for a more intense fruit flavor.
  3. Divide between two serving glasses and enjoy. Optional: Garnish with banana slices, fresh mint, and/or shredded coconut. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Freeze leftovers in ice cube trays or popsicle molds for an afternoon pick-me-up.
