berries. beets. battlestar galactica.

I recently had a Beet & Strawberry Smoothie like this at Green Bliss Café in Fullerton...and have since then become obsessed with making them at home. I'm sure some of you have a raised eyebrow right now as drinking beets may not sound all that appealing. I was skeptical too...and I love beets. But the strawberries added a nice tartness to it and it was strangely refreshing and dessert like.

Beets are also a great source of energy, so this makes for a perfect breakfast smoothie to get you through the morning. Good and good for you. Boom.

Choose organic produce when and if possible.
You'll need : 
2 cooked beets, skin off (I used one yellow, one red)
1 handful baby spinach
1 cup frozen strawberries
¾ cup frozen pineapple
1 teaspoon Chia Seeds
¼ cup water
1 ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon agave syrup (optional)

Blend till smooth and bright magenta. You always have the option to add more liquid if you want a thinner consistency. Enjoy!
