How To Make a Beet Smoothie
Most of our smoothie recipes usually have spinach or kale, however, there is a whole world of vegetables out there. Beets are not commonly used in smoothies, however, the addition of beets to your smoothie can help turn your smoothie into a nutritional powerhouse.
Fruits that go well with Beets: Beets have a very distinct flavor and not everyone likes the flavor. However, there are a number of fruits that can disguise the unique, earthy taste of beets. Here are a few of our favorite fruits.

How To Prepare Beets for Smoothies
You can use raw or steamed beets in your beets. Which option you use boils down to your personal preference.
Beets tend to have a distinct earthy flavor, so if you don’t like the flavor of beets you can steam your beets before using them in your smoothie. Steaming the beets lessens the earthy flavor of the beets.
I usually wash and peel my beets before using them in my smoothies. I have heard of some people leaving the skin on, however, if you plan to do this make sure you wash the beets thoroughly.
