roasted beet smoothie recipe

roasted beet smoothie // forage + fodder

this is probably one of my very favorite smoothies because it’s perfect for this odd transition weather in texas when we’re all craving fall flavors but left with the reality of 80 degree days. it’s got great detoxifying quality and tastes delicious.  dates are the secret weapon in my more decadent smoothies because they add a flavor almost resembling chocolate, but it’s important to blend the dates really well, due to the their tough skin. i like to let the beet be the hero of this recipe, but if you’re not as fond of beets as i am, feel free to add in more cherries or perhaps some strawberries to sweeten it up a bit. i like to buy several beets and roast them all in advance, since they take so long both to cook and to cool. stay tuned for another smoothie creation featuring golden beets!

roasted beet smoothie

small handful of pecan halves (8-10)

1 tsp chia seeds

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 date, pitted

1 small roasted beet, cooled & skinned

8-10 frozen cherries

10 ice cubes

dash of cinnamon and turmeric

place first four ingredients in vitamix (or blender) and blend until smooth. add remaining ingredients and blend until ice has completely combined with the other ingredients. if smoothie is thicker than you’d like, add a touch more coconut milk and blend again.
