Want to add more beet greens to your diet, but hate the taste?  This delicious tropical green smoothie will give you all the benefits of eating your greens, without the earthy taste. Lots of bright fresh fruits like apple pair nicely with the beet greens, and combines everything together into a delicious and healthy smoothie!

I love the fresh and vibrant flavor of this drink, which is so perfect with sweet fruits – this is one of the best green smoothie recipes, and we make it every time we have beets in season! This is a great refreshing morning smoothie, or great after a workout. It’s sweet, tangy, and loaded with good-for-you ingredients.

Grow Fresh Herbs in Your Kitchen All Year Long

I always add fresh greens to my smoothies, I absolutely love the taste! We got this great 6-Pod Aerogarden which is fantastic for growing greens and herbs in the winter.  We actually got it when we lived in a smaller apartment, but even now that we own an acreage we still use it year-round!  I love growing herbs on my countertop like fresh parsley, basil, dill, mint, sage, thyme, and lemon balm.

It uses LED lights and water, so no messy soil needed – you can have fresh herbs at your fingertips any time. I love picking a few springs of parsley to chop on pastas, adding basil leaves to soups, and tossing some dill in with my pasta salads. This Aerogarden is a great gift for anyone who would like fresh herbs… no big kitchen or green thumb required!

The Best Blender for the Job

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my high-speed Vitamix blender is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This appliance will blend even the toughest of ingredients (frozen fruit, anyone?) into pulp.  I prefer using my blender to my food processor for sauces or homemade hummus, as it’s much easier to clean out the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis, if not twice a day!

Frozen Fruit Recipes For the Win!

I used frozen pineapple and banana in this smoothie instead of fresh. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can have frozen fruit to use in smoothies in no time. Check out all my recipes that use Freezer Ingredients on The Herbeevore – great for those days when you want a meal ready fast! And check out my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples for long-lasting staples that I always keep on hand.

If you grow beets in your garden, you can cut the leaves, wash them, and put them in an airtight bag to freeze. That way you can enjoy frozen greens in your recipes and smoothies all year long!

 

How Do I Make This Beet Top Smoothie Recipe?

  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender.
  2. Blend on low, and increase speed until all fruit/ice chunks are blended and the smoothie is a creamy consistency.
  3. Pour into your favorite glass, sit back, and enjoy!

Dietary Modifications

  • This recipe is vegan and gluten free – if you are adding a protein powder, make sure it keeps with any dietary modifications you require. I like a vegan and gluten free orange and ginger protein for this smoothie, if I’m adding a powder!
