#sundaysmoothieprep: Avocado Berry Beet Smoothie

No.

I’m not joking.

There are avocados and beets in this sweet smoothie, and I’m not going to lie. It definitely tastes like beets… but in a good way.

There’s also coconut water in this smoothie, which I tried for the first time – not in the smoothie, just drank some – huge mistake.

It. Was. Disgusting.

Luckily, in the actual smoothie, it’s fine. Can’t even taste it.

Thankfully…

Avocado Berry Beet is my new color scheme apparently.

I adapted this from oh she glows’ Pink Power Detox Smoothie, but I didn’t have strawberries, and I needed my celery for a soup I’m making later… so it’s mildly different.

Hence the adaption.

Also, I made way more than four cups.

Like, hilariously more. I filled five of my little milk bottles way past the actual full line.

SO MUCH MORE that I made a mess.

Friggin’ gravity.

Avocado Beet Smoothie
adapted from oh she glows
serves 5 really full 8-oz. milk bottles

Ingredients

  • 2 16.9-oz. containers of coconut water (Maybe not the whole bunch of them.)
  • 2 large organic avocados
  • 4 small organic beets, chopped (I definitely steamed these before blending like she recommends. I don’t have a Vitamix.)
  • 2 cups frozen berries (I used blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.)
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. coconut oil

Directions
Blend and enjoy! Recommendation: Put the solids in before the liquids so you know how much room you’ll have in your blender.

I had about 4 oz. extra (which might have been more had I not spilled a bunch on my freshly cleaned and sanitized counter top). Save to pour over yogurt and granola for a morning snack or, if you’re like me, drink it up as you clean.
