Truthfully, I don't even love beets, but this smoothie is delightful, thanks to the addition of berries and dates. So, even if you're a little skeptical, I suggest you give this smoothie a try.
- An easy way to add beets to your diet

- Beet - small/medium beet; make sure to scrub it before dicing it and using it in this smoothie recipe

- Almond milk - or ANY kind of milk
I love smoothies so much because they are QUICK and easy!
For this beet smoothie, you'll simply add all of the ingredients to your blender and pulse for 1 minutes until it's smooth.
If you're using frozen strawberries, ⅔ cup milk should be perfect. If you're using fresh berries, start with ¼ cup milk and increase as needed.
I recommend using a high-power blender, like a Vitamix or Hurom, rather than a NutriBullet. I love my NutriBullet, but beets can be a little tricky to blend, so a larger blender is best.
What are the health benefits of beets?
Beets contain a healthy amount of fiber and Vitamin C, along with iron, magnesium and Vitamin B. If you like them steamed or roasted, great! But, if not, adding them to your morning smoothie is a great way to add them to your diet.
