Beet Smoothie

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 $0.50
  • 1 large handful ice 
  • 2 tbsp cold water

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree, adding more water if necessary. 
  2. Serve immediately.

I do like beets and I can not wait to try this…yum!! I do have to admit that this post makes me somewhat sad, as I moved from California to Colorado 7 years ago and Trader Joe did not follow me here. I miss him!

Would this work with canned beets or would that just be gross?
