Strawberry, Banana, and Beet Greens Smoothie

Smoothie Madness, DAY 3

Strawberry, Banana, and Beet Green Smoothie

Strawberry, Banana, and Beet Green Smoothie

Strawberry, Banana, and Beet Greens Smoothie

This would have been better if I had more strawberries.  And to be honest, although I dearly love beet greens, these were the least tasty in a smoothie of all the kinds of greens we tried during SMOOTHIE MADNESS. Yesterday’s St. Patrick’s Day Green Pina Colada Smoothie had spinach and the day before we had a Blueberry Kale Smoothie.


1 1/2 c frozen strawberries

2 bananas (can be frozen)

1/2 c greek yogurt

1 1/2 c baby beet greens with stems (or spinach would be a good substitution)

2 t honey

Whiz it up in the food processor or blender and enjoy. There are visible green bits in this smoothie.
