I've been on an extra huge fruit and veggie kick lately and beets have been my jam. I discovered that strawberries and beets are an incredible combo so I blended them with a heaping spoonful of flax seed and water for a super refreshing smoothie. The color was so intense that it called for a Merlotte's glass. I thoroughly enjoyed my True Blood themed smoothie ;)
Strawberry & Beet Smoothie
- 2 raw beets, washed and peeled
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 tablespoon flax seed
- a dash of vanilla (optional)
- 1 cup water
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Any blender will do, but I use my beloved NutriBullet for an ultra smooth consistency!
