Beet Blueberry Smoothie
I have been enjoying a smoothie or juice every morning for awhile now. I really like making different ones by trying different fruits and vegetables. Well, Ninja Kitchen messaged me on Twitter to try one with a beet. A BEET. That may not sound weird to you, but I will be honest…I was scared! But, I did it! I will openly admit that I bought the smallest beet I could find though for my 1st time using one 😉
For my 1st beet smoothie I used my small beet, cucumber, tart apples, and frozen blueberries. Fresh blueberries would be fabulous as well, I just so happened to have frozen blueberries in my freezer. I will admit, I LIKED IT! I also loved the beautiful purple color 🙂
Here are some of the health benefits of the ingredients in this smoothie recipe:
Beets – They are very high in vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and they also contain vitamin B.
Blueberries – These beautiful blue…berries…are the King of Antioxidant Foods. Antioxidants protect our bodies from damage and can even help with anti-aging.
Apples – They are extremely high in antioxidants, fiber and flavanoids. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, so why not start adding them to your smoothies?
Cucumbers – These are great for rehydration. Cucumbers are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.
Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.
