Tropical Beet Smoothie

Even if you do not really care for the earthy flavor of beets, I would still give this smoothie a try! It is a very mild hint of beet flavor along with lots of tropical fruity tastes as well! I was inspired to make this smoothie beacause of a local juice shop that I like to patronize on occasion. They have a similar smoothie on their menu, but at $9 a pop I figured I could get enough ingredients to make several of these at home for just a little bit more $$. So here is the recipe:

1 Cup of Coconut Water
1/2 cup of Spinach
1/2 Banana
1/2 cup of pineapple tidbits (with juice)
3 frozen Strawberries (or fresh!)
1 tsp. Agave nectar
4-6 Ice cubes

First I added the coconut water and spinach and blended until a smooth liquid. Next add in all of the other ingredients and blend until smooth. (add more coconut water or ice depending on the consistency you like)


  1. Completely new idea for me. I'm wondering how it'll taste as beet has the flavor I'm not much fond of. However, the other ingredients make me feel that the taste will be great. I'm gonna surely try this one. Thanks for sharing such new idea.
