Pretty Pretty… Smoothie?

Recently I heard about adding beets to smoothies, so since I had some cooked ones in the fridge this morning I decided to try it.  And WOW, do beets gorgeous up a drink! I also added chia kombucha to this for extra fruitiness and tang.

This is the smoothie I made:





And this is how I made it:

1 1/2 cups purple kale leaves
3/4 cup frozen raspberries
1 small cooked beet
1 white nectarine
a 1 inch piece of frozen banana
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup black chia kombucha
1 scoop protein powder
1 tsp camu camu powder
stevia to taste

Camu camu intensifies the sweet tart fruitiness, coconut milk mellows it out a little, and I swear, you can’t even taste all that kale! I prefer purple kale for red smoothies because besides the additional antioxidant benefits of purple foods, it’s nice to sometimes to have normal looking/not swampy smoothies.
