For this recipe, it’s best to use pre-cooked beets and frozen. There are two easy ways for this:

1.  Boil or roast your beets beforehand, peel, chop into chunks and place them into a zip-lock bag and freeze them. 

2.  Or you can buy frozen pre-cooked beets in the freezer section at your local supermarket.  They are already cooked and chopped for you. 

 

Then toss everything into a blender and puree!

It’s a good idea to keep most of the ingredients already chopped, stored in zip-locked bags, and tossed into the freezer.  This way, it’s less stressful and easier for anyone to make a smoothie when you want one.  

Nowadays, young adults and even kids don’t eat enough healthy meals or snacks.   They’re always looking to grab some unhealthy snacks or junk food to eat.  

So making smoothies are not only refreshing, sweet-tasting, and healthy,  but well worth the effort!   

If you plan to make this smoothie for the kids,  just omit the protein powder. 

 

WHY USE BEETS? 

Beets are low in calories and high in nutrients!  Great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C, plus they contain numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and fights inflammation.   A win-win for everyone!

 

WHICH PROTEIN POWDER TO USE?

We are currently using this Garden of Life protein powder with our smoothie.  And no this is not a paid post (although I wish it was). You can find it at Whole Foods, but it costs less on Amazon.

We have a friend who was told by a renowned nutritionist that this was the best protein powder on the market.  It’s not only high in protein but is loaded with tons of vitamins too. 

So I highly recommend this one.

    I’m always up for anything with spinach. Blueberries are not quite in season where I live, but it should be any day now. In fact, it seems a little late. I especially love that you included pineapple in this smoothie. I think I’d love that.
