Beet and Avocado Smoothie

If I told you that you might be able to get your child to eat beets, broccoli and an avocado for breakfast you’d probably think I’m nuts. Well, this morning I did. Yep, all mixed up in this tasty smoothie. I’ve made lots of fruit smoothies, and my daughter likes them, so I thought I’d try a fruit and vegetable combination.

Raw Beet and Avocado Smoothie
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3-4 servings
  • 2 small raw beets (peeled and cut into 1" pieces)
  • 1 ripe Haas avocado (peeled and pitted)
  • 1 lime (peeled)
  • 1 whole orange, peeled and chopped
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 8-10 baby carrots (or 2 regular sized)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons lavender honey
  1. Add all the ingredients to the blender container and start on medium speed and when the ingredients start coming together switch to high. Blend until smooth. I let this one go for about 1 minute so it turned out silky smooth and creamy. The beets give it a mild earthy flavor and the tang from the citrus juices is a refreshing complement to the vegetables. It was a hit and good for you, so I'll definitely make this one again.
