How to Make a Green Smoothie That Isn't Green

I try really hard to eat healthy. Smoothies seem to make it a little easier. After all, you can always plug your nose and chug, right? Wrong! No nose plugging necessary. Why? Mostly because this smoothie looks yummy. So while it has lots of veggies in it, somehow it's much for palatable.

PS these would also be great as green smoothie popsicles.

I know you are just dying to know how I make my green smoothies such a pretty pink...

The secret ingredient is (da, da, da) beets. You heard me.

I also add:
frozen fruit (a mix of peaches, pineapple, and strawberries)
yogurt
spinach
blueberries
avocado (makes it creamy)
coconut oil (fat for the kids and flavor for me. If you are cutting calories skip it.)
protein powder of choice
mixed field greens
RAW beet and beet greens
water

The depth of the pink will depend how much beet you put in the smoothie. I am using a big chunk here. But you might not be so brave, start small. Even a small piece will make it pretty.

Oh, don't forget to wash the beet! Not washing the beet will make your smoothie taste like dirt. Literally.

I like to add a lime to my green smoothies.

I'm not super into measuring.

Yes, those are the beet greens you see in there. Come on. They're good for you.

See how pretty.

So pretty, even your biggest critics (kids) will think it must be yummy... because it looks like it.
