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
Author:
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3-4 servings
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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.
