Red Zinger Beet Smoothie

I know that the ingredients list for this smoothie is a bit long, but they all add to the complexity of the flavors. You can pare it down by only using frozen mango or frozen strawberries for the smoothie. Just be sure to use two cups instead of one. 
Prep Time10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240ml) almond milk
  • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) orange juice
  • 1 cup packed beet greens, handful
  • 1 small beet, about 1/3 cup chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced red onion
  • 1 cup (140g) frozen mango
  • 1 cup (140g) frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cayenne

  • Add all of the smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
