Chocolate Banana Beet Green Smoothie

Come join me in and indulge in some beets!  Beets have always tasted like dirt to me however they are completely hidden in this smoothie which tastes like a chocolate banana milkshake!

Beets are such a power-house food because they are so beneficial for the liver.  The liver may be one of the most unappreciated organs in the human body.  It works 24/7/365 to keep the body pure of toxins and harmful substances.  As well, the liver supports nearly every organ in the body in some facet.  (1)  So give your liver some love today and whip up this tasty smoothie!

    I will have to give this a try. I don’t like beets either but I need more iron in my diet and do not eat red meat. Iron supplements are hard to digest.

      Hi Linda, I agree…I’d rather get my iron from food than supplements. Let us know how much you love it when you give it a try!

    Well this is an odd combination I would have never put together on my own but it is really yummy. I made it this morning for breakfast and I couldn’t taste the beets at all. Thanks!

      Thank you, so glad you love it too! It really is a secret way to include beets into your life! Cheers!

    My husband and I love beets so I think this would be a winner in our house. We are just beginning to incorporate more smoothies and juciing into our diet.
