Step Two

Combine the ingredients in a quality blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix. You only need to blend the smoothie for about 30 seconds to get it nice and creamy.

Step Three

Serve immediately! Or, if you want to meal prep this smoothie, you can make it up to a couple of days in advance. Another way to meal prep smoothies is to combine the ingredients in a zip-top bag, minus the almond milk. Place the bag in the freezer and then just add almond milk when you are ready to blend.

Recipe Tips

  • It’s always good practice to layer your ingredients into the blender with the liquids on the bottom. This will help the motor run efficiently.
  • I always recommend using a mixture of fruits in a smoothie, especially pairing fruits with soluble fiber like bananas, mango, and pears, with non-soluble fibrous fruits like berries. This will also help create a nice, creamy consistency to your smoothie.
  • Feel free to use whatever nut butter or seed butter you like, including cashew butter, peanut butter, pumpkin seed butter, or whatever you like.
  • To make this Strawberry Beet Smoothie a balanced meal, try adding a scoop of collagen protein to this recipe to help balance the macronutrients. If you are vegan, try this unsweetened vegan protein powder. Or, you can make my recipe for Homemade Lentil Protein Powder and use a few tablespoons of it in your smoothie.

FAQs

Can I make this beet smoothie in a regular blender?

Yes, but it might not be as smooth as the photos.

Can I use raw beets instead of cooked beets?

Yes, but cooked beets are much sweeter than raw beets.

Can you taste the beets in this smoothie?

Not really. The dominant flavors are banana, strawberry, and almond butter.

How do you cook the beets?

I recommend cooking beets in the Instant Pot (check out my recipe for Instant Pot Beets. This is the absolute easiest, mess-free way). Or, you can wrap the beets in foil and bake them in the oven.
