- 1 cup loosely packed spinach
- 1 cup cooked beets
- 1 cup peeled zucchini
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup almond milk
- Grain Free Granola
- Hemp Hearts
- Chia Seeds
- Fresh Berries
If you are not buying pre-cooked beets, it’s super simple and easy to prepare them in advance. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Wrap each beet in foil and place on baking sheet. Cook for 1 hour, or until softened. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Rinse under cold water and the skin will rub off easily. Watch out as your fingers will soak up that gorgeous pink color, but you can wash it off immediately after. Store your cooked beets for up to a week in an air tight container.
Place the ingredients in the blender in the order listed through the almond milk.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into 2 bowls. Top each smoothie with a combination of the following and enjoy:
¼ cup grain free granola
1 T Hemp Hearts
1 T Chia Seeds
¼ cup fresh berries
