Hot Pink Smoothie

Looking for a quick breakfast or snack that is healthy and tastes good.  Try out this smoothie recipe.

You do have to have a high powered blender to make it, like a Vita Mix.


32 ounces raw milk  (or coconut milk if lactose intolerant).  Using coconut milk tonight.

½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 beet, peeled 

1 frozen peeled banana

8-10 dried figs   (to add sweetness)

Beet greens from the top of your beet

Can add a few cubes of ice to make it slushier


How do I Make It?

Add beet greens and liquid to high speed blender like a VitaMix or Blend Tech and blend for about 90 seconds until greens are completely liquefied.  Add other ingredients and blend till all liquefied.  Best when served immediately.

Beets are a blood purifier and coconut contains lots of minerals and electrolytes.  Your banana gives you potassium and figs are full of minerals.  How could this not be good for you and it tastes good too.
