Ingredients
  • 1 beet root and greens
  • 1 banana optionally frozen
  • 3 tbsp. raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries I used frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup unflavored soy or almond milk
  • agave or maple syrup to taste
Instructions
  1. Separate the beet greens from the root. Wash greens well (they tend to be a bit gritty) and coarsely chop. Peel the root portion and cut into 1 inch chunks.
  2. Place beet roots and greens into blender, along with banana, cacao powder, almond butter and berries. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides of pitcher as needed. Add milk and sweetener to taste. Blend again until smooth.
