I just came back from the garden with so many beets and this smoothie sounds great. What kind of blender is that? and is it a glass or plastic jar? Thanks!

Homegrown beets, yum! The blender was an ancient (I think like 20 year old) Waring blender, which I’ve since replaced with a simple handheld blender. The jar was glass, and I’m not entirely sure if beets would dye a plastic container or not. Happy smoothie-making!

Do they have to be roasted, or can you do raw? I have a ninja.

Hi Laura! I roast it just to soften it up, but if your blender is strong it should be able to handle chopped raw beets

So we did the whole hot/savory thing with our Beet Pesto Pizza, but I know you’re just dying to find out how you can incorporate more beets into your diet. Well look no further.

This recipe takes beets to the other side of the flavor spectrum, transforming your everyday strawberry banana smoothie into a health-packed, super pink power smoothie.

You’ll need to roast the beets like we did in our beet pizza recipe, but with water in place of olive oil. So trim, peel, and chop 1 beet into ½ inch cubes, make your aluminum foil pouch, and sprinkle a tablespoon of water over the beets. Seal up the pouch and bake for 50 minutes at 375 degrees F. Once the beets are cooked and tender, take them out and let them cool.

What variation of beet should you use here? Baby beets are a touch sweeter, so I used 2 of those for this recipe. You can also use 1 large red beet.

Once cooled, place beets, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 cup yogurt, 1 Tbsp honey, ½ a banana, and 1 to 2 cups of ice in a blender and blend away. You can use plain or strawberry yogurt, going Greek if you want the extra protein. You can also add more ice to reach the consistency of your liking!

This smoothie is packed with all the great vitamins in beets (head over to the Beets Rundown for the nutrition analysis), and it’s loaded with vitamin C, potassium, and protein. The carbohydrates in it also make it great for an on-the-go breakfast kind of morning!
