Heart Beet



  • 1/4 cup raw beet root (washed, peeled)

  • 1/2 cup blueberries

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple

  • 1 small banana

  • 1/2 cup almond milk

  • 1 tsp chia seeds

  • 1 tsp flax seeds


If you're aiming to create a similar whimsical effect for serving presentation, you'll have to blend the smoothie in 2 parts, which will give you a dark and light colored layer. First slice the beets, press them over a glass cup and set it aside. In a blender, combine first three ingredients--beets, blueberries and water--pour this into the glass. Using the same blender, mix next three ingredients--pineapple, banana and almond milk--again pour this into the glass. This method of blending the smoothie in 2 parts will help you re-create the way this smoothie is pictured but if you're just in a need of a quick smoothie, simply combine all ingredients at once. That's it!

Berries boast high levels of flavonoids, which studies have shown not only help fight cancer and provide heart healthy benefits but can also reduce the risk of diabetes and cognitive decline. 




1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 orange
1/2 tbsp flaxseed
1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened 
1/2 cup water


Place all ingredients into a blender, and mix until you reach desired consistency. If using fresh fruits instead of frozen, chill smoothie prior to serving or add in 1/2 cup ice cubes.
