Beet Smoothie

As a veteran of several juice cleanses, I’m no stranger to drinking my beets. Not only is this smoothie packed with nutrients, but also it's sweet and easy-to-drink. My raging sweet tooth demands lots of honey, but feel free to cut back — or not include it at all. The hot pink hue means serving the smoothie in an elegant glass is non-negotiable.

Beet Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Beet Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
