A beet smoothie?

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

emoticon I made this yesterday and it actually tasted great:

left-over beet juice from a jar of beets

2 small raw beets

about 10 semi-frozen strawberries--- so no ice cubes needed!

unsweetened cranberry juice

baby spinach

A beautiful red color! Not the weird green I usually drink! Sweet enough from the strawberries! And plenty of antioxidants ! Perfect! emoticon

    Sounds pretty good. Beets are a great blood cleaner. Yours are red and green? My are usually dark brown. Probably from the greens and blueberries. I, too, put in 2 T. flaxseed. My picky granddaughter tried one of mine and said it was good. emoticon

    i am not sure if i like beets. not sure if i have ever had any in a long time. i like smoothies with spinach or kale. i had one without red berries so mine was actually green today.

    Thanks - might be worth a try. I'm not a big spinach fan - how much did you use?
