Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 10 mins


  • 3 Large Bananas (chopped and frozen)
  • 1 cup Frozen Unsweetened Blueberries
  • ½ cup Roasted Beet Puree (cooled**)
  • ½ packed cup 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


  • 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).
  • Pour into serving cups or jars and enjoy!

Recipe 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).
