Ingredients

  • 1 apple
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 banana
  • 1 small beet
  • 1 handful of organic kale
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger puree
  • 1/2 bag of frozen organic raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon local honey
  • 1 orange slice

I was at a Vitamix demonstration and a lady told me her doctor said the way to stay healthy is to eat a beet, some kale, and some ginger every day. It makes perfect sense when you look at the health benefits of all three but most people do not include those foods in their diets.

Well, now you can have all three super foods and still enjoy the taste. You will love the flavor and how you feel after you drink this for several days. You may even look younger from the beets!

To make, cut up one apple and puree in a blender with about a cup of water. Add a banana, one small beet, a handful of organic kale, a squirt of fresh ginger puree, and half a bag of frozen raspberries. Puree and then add one tablespoon of local honey. Taste to see if you want more.

Pour into a glass and garnish with a orange slice.

Enjoy!

Note: I use fresh ginger for most of my recipes but prefer pureed ginger in my smoothies so I do not get any chucks left at the bottom. You are welcome to use fresh.
