This Strawberry Beet Detox Smoothie is so vibrant in both color and flavor. I used coconut milk to make it dairy-free.
Has it started warming up at all where you live? We’ve had some warmer days here in California, but the mornings are still chilly. Even with the cold mornings, I still love a smoothie for breakfast. I used some coconut whipped cream on this one to make it extra delish, but that’s totally optional!
This Strawberry Beet Detox Smoothie includes only four ingredients, but it’s full of flavor and nutrition. It is a dairy-free, paleo-friendly recipe. The coconut milk makes it creamy with lots of satiating healthy fat, and the beets and strawberries give it the most gorgeous red color and flavor. As mentioned, feel free to top your smoothie with a dollop of homemade or purchased coconut whipped cream for that extra “wow” factor (look for the pre-made version in the refrigerator section of your local natural food grocery store). This gorgeous smoothie provides for a whole serving of vegetables and is super simple to make. Both kids and adults will love this one.
To make the frozen beets, you can buy them that way, or you can buy the cooked version and just freeze them yourself. I prefer doing it this way, because it’s more budget-friendly and the beets just seem sweeter when they’re cooked.
To make frozen cooked beets, I just lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and then laid out the cooked beets so they wouldn’t stick together when frozen.
The beets need about 4-6 hours to freeze through, and then I like to just transfer them to a zip-top bag to keep in the freezer and use for this smoothie.
I’m not a big fan of the word “detox,” but beets do support the body’s natural detoxification system. Use your favorite brand of protein powder to make this a satisfying breakfast to fuel your busy day. I always recommend this brand of collagen peptides as a great protein powder choice (affiliate link included).
To make the smoothie, you literally just pop the four ingredients in a high-speed blender and give it a whirl.
