Beet & Banana Smoothie

This smoothie recipe uses just four delicious, healthy ingredients

At Terra's Kitchen, we're huge fans of smoothies! Whether it's a quick, nutritious breakfast or a post-workout meal, smoothies are a delicious and easy way to boost your energy and metabolism while also ensuring you're getting the necessary health benefits from fruits and vegetables your body needs.

While the health benefits of a good smoothie are countless, we often hear that it's a struggle to come up with recipes. What are the healthy ingredients and how much should you use? What can be added to a green smoothie so it doesn't taste like a liquid salad? Most want to eat healthy, but struggle with smoothie recipes that taste good in combination.

So, to make the smoothie game easier for you, our test kitchen came up with the Terra's Kitchen Top 5 Smoothie Recipes! Try this one with beets and bananas.

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.
