Sweet Strawberry Beet Smoothie

We love strawberries! And we are so excited they are coming back in season!

Strawberries are available all year long, but did you know that they are most beneficial when eating in season? You can stock up on fresh strawberries and freeze them to have them extended throughout the year.

You always want to buy your strawberries as well as all berries organic. Berries are one of the fruits that contain the highest amours of pesticides. You can avoid these toxins by purchasing organic and will find that organic is not as expensive when they are in season.

Did you also know how beneficial BEETS are too? Check out 15 benefits here to start with.

Enjoy this fun smoothie this spring as you enter into strawberry season and get your beet on! It is loaded with other nutritional benefits from coconut oil, lemon juice and ginger! It is great for breakfast or a favorite snacks for both kids and adults!

Sweet Strawberry Beet Smoothie

Ingredients:

2 Tb Coconut Oil (can use a lemon cod liver oil to replace if desired)

1 Cup Organic Lemon Juice

1 Cup of Filter Water

1 Medium Beet (roasted/ready to eat Love Beets are a favorite)

1 tsp Fresh Ginger (grated or minced)

2 cups of Frozen Strawberries (may be less or more based on blender)

2-3 droppers of Organic Liquid Stevia (about 1-2 tsp)

Directions:

Combine the coconut oil, lemon juice, filtered water and beet in a blender. Blend on smoothie setting.  Add ginger and frozen strawberries and blend until desired thickness. You may want to add more or less strawberries to get the consistency you want. Ours is in between soft serve ice cream and a thick smoothie. More frozen strawberries will make it thicker. You can add more lemon juice or water if you want it thinner. Add 2 tsp of liquid stevia and blend one last time.  The coconut oil will harden up creating some white “specks” in the smoothie…it is still delicious! We also add fiber powder and a drop of lime essential oil to our smoothie. Enjoy for breakfast or a snack!
