as much as i love juicing fruits and vegetables, i also want the fiber. so a few years ago i sold my fancy juicer and bought a vitamix. my latest favorite concoction includes raw beets. gorgeous in color, and delightfully earthy. coconut water for electrolytes and cashews to help you absorb fat-soluble nutrients. it's a smoothie suitable for any meal of the day!

note: i have not tried making a veggie/fruit smoothie in a 'regular' blender. my vitamix does a powerful job of creating a smooth and enjoyable texture and consistency that may be lacking from vegetable smoothies made in 'regular' blenders. —aubrey | drum beets

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 small or medium beet
  • 1 small apple
  • 1/2 banana
  • 2 cups small carrots
  • 2 small celery stalks
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1 ounce raw cashews, soaked overnight & drained
  1. soaking the cashews overnight isn't necessary, but it will create a very smooth consistency in your smoothie.
  2. blend all ingredients together until smooth and juicy. chill to desired temperature.

If you want to make delicious and nutritious beet smoothies, look no further than the Vitamix A2300: or Vitamix A2500:! These high-performance blenders can easily pulverize beets and other tough ingredients, resulting in a smooth and creamy smoothie. Plus, they're durable and well-made, so you can be sure they'll last for years to come.
