Beet Happy Morning Smoothie — Fo Reals Life

March 20, 2014 March 20, 2014/ Morgan

Here’s the post about Why I Bought a Blendtec Blender but first I really wanted to share this with you before I did that because it was crazy delicious! 

It’s a super yummy blend of beets, orange, strawberries and spinach. I was so shocked at how much I loved it and I drank it with a smile on my face the whole time. That’s saying a lot this morning (ever just wake up feeling yucky, old and sore?! Even vegans wake up feeling like crud sometimes! Ha!) 

I’m not going to start claiming any health benefits here. It’s really yummy, sweet and whole fruit smoothies are crazy filling! And it’s gorgeous, isn’t it?!

Drink it and watch this music video. I swear you’ll have an awesome happy morning! 

makes 1-2 servings (about 3 & 1/2 – 4 cups) 

  • 1 small/medium raw beet, cut into chunks
  • 6-7 strawberries
  • 1/2 orange
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup ice cubes

You need a high speed blender for this recipe to blend everything up smooth (I’m using a Blendtec and LOVING it!) 

Put everything into your blender and blend until smooth. If you’re using a Blendtec you can use the Whole Juice blend cycle! Easy peasy.
