4 servings

Healthy (and Sneaky!) Berry Banana Shake

Ingredients:

  • 3 Large Bananas, chopped and frozen
  • 1 cup Frozen Unsweetened Blueberries
  • ½ cup Roasted Beet Puree, cooled**
  • ½ packed cup Organic Baby Spinach
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • 3 packets Natural Sweetener (Stevia, Truvia, etc.)
  • 2 cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 2 cups Ice Cubes

Directions:

  1. In a high-speed blender (I used my Vitamix), add all of the ingredients.  Blend on high speed until completely smooth (I used my smoothie setting 2x).
  2. Pour into serving cups or jars and enjoy!

Notes:

**I wrapped 2 fist-sized beets in foil and roasted them in the oven at 375 degrees for 1 hour (or until a knife pierced through the center with ease).  After they cooled, I scraped off the skin, chopped them into chunks and pureed them in a blender.  If you don’t want to cook your own beets, you can use packaged precooked beets or canned sliced beets.
