Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized roasted beet (see post above for Easy Roasted Beets)
  • 1 very ripe frozen banana, broken into chunks (see post above for banana-free)
  • ½ to 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage (or variety of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate powder, Amazing Grass Berry Green Superfood, or goji powder or 1 to 2 tablespoons berry-flavored dairy-free protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia seed
Optional Add-ins:
  • Handful of baby spinach leaves (you can’t taste it!)
  • Sweetener, to taste

Directions

  1. Add the beets, banana, milk beverage, berry goodness, and seeds to your blender and blend until smooth. For less powerful blenders, add the roasted beets so they are closest to the blades (the softer texture will allow your blender to get moving before it hits the frozen stuff). If adding spinach, use just enough milk beverage to get things pureed, then add more to your desired consistency.
  2. If desired, blend in your favorite sweetener, to taste.
