Beet Treat Smoothie
It’s smoothie week at the Co-op! Smoothies provide a great vehicle for sneaking a lot of healthy raw veggies into your diet and they also provide a great way to use ‘inglorious’ fruits and veggies from your fridge that might be a little past their prime. It’s fun to be creative and experimental with your smoothies and our weekly sale from April 20th – 26th offers up a handful of items to inspire your creative smoothie endeavors. This particular recipe is a favorite for its gorgeous color and nutrient-dense punch. It’s so delicious and refreshing that you’ll forget that it also happens to be super healthy.
Chop the non-frozen fruits & veggies. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. For a protein boost, add a heaping spoonful of hemp seed or chia seed.
