I’m on a pretty tight editing schedule these days, putting the finishing touches on The BrokeAss Gourmet Cookbook, and sometimes I don’t even have time to (gasp!) make lunch. On my extra-busy days, I chow on a handful (or 2) of raw almonds and a frosty glass of this easy, delicious, no-sugar-added smoothie. Even if you think you don’t like beets, give this a try—it’ll change your mind.
- 3 steamed, peeled baby beets (I like the ones from Trader Joe’s), halved $2 for 6
- 1 ripe banana, peeled and broken into pieces $0.25
- 1 medium orange, peeled, seeds removed $0.25
- 1 large handful ice
- 2 tbsp cold water
Total Cost of Ingredients: $2.50
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree, adding more water if necessary. Serve immediately.
