Blueberry-Beet Smoothie

Blueberry-Beet Smoothie

Makes 1 smoothie

The night before you start the cleanse, prepare two beets: Wrap each beet in foil, and roast in a 400°F oven 1 hour, or until tender. Remove from oven. As soon as beets are cool enough to handle, remove foil, slip off and discard skin, and slice beets in half. Stash beets in the refrigerator for smoothies throughout the cleanse (you’ll have enough beets for three breakfasts and one snack smoothie).
  • ½ medium roasted beet (4 oz.)
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup nut, oat, rice, or hemp milk, or water
  • ¼ avocado, cubed
  • ½ Tbs. lime juice
  • Raw honey to taste, optional
  • 2 ice cubes

1. Cut 1/2 beet into large chunks.

2. Transfer beet chunks to blender, and add all remaining ingredients; blend on high until smooth.

My husband and I tried it and liked it with a little change. The beets were so sweet we didn't need the added "sugar". It was tasty.
