Author Notes: I have never been terribly into vegetables in smoothies (or that into smoothies, actually), but a friend and co-worker brought a beet smoothie into a meeting the other day, and I was so intrigued I got some instructions from her and then made my own version to try. It's different, but I like it! —fiveandspice
Serves: 1 to 2
small, or 1/2 medium red beet, scrubbed and shredded or chopped into small pieces
cup (heaping) frozen strawberries
tablespoon grated fresh ginger
tablespoons fresh lemon juice
cup apple juice, plus more as necessary
Honey, if desired
- Put everything in a blender and blend it until smooth. Add just enough apple juice to make the smoothie the consistency you want.
- Taste, and add honey if you want additional sweetness. Pour into glasses and serve.
