About this Vegan Beet Smoothie:

It’s cooling and fruity, with just a slight hint of beet, and I mean slight… the perfect, herbaceous counter to the sweet raspberries and coconut. The color….. a hue of magenta that jumps out and glistens, just like these beet deviled eggs!

The bright pink nearly makes my heart nearly skip a beat each time I watch it transform from raw ingredients to creamy smoothie heaven.

Beyond knowing that the raspberries and beets would create such a glorious color, I choose them for their blood boosting, iron rich properties. Deeply pigmented red foods such as beets, cherries, raspberries, goji berries are rich in iron*. For our bodies to absorb plants sources of iron, we need to take in Vitamin C at the same time. In this smoothie, it’s the coconut milk!

I also added MegaFood Daily Energy Boost, the powder being made of B12, beets from , green leaf tea, ashwaganda root, bacopa root – a combination that supports balanced blood sugar levels and energy, and mental clarity.* All things we can surely use throughout our day.

A smoothie without bananas:

There are no bananas or greens hiding out – typical “healthy” smoothie components. Just berries, beets, and a boost! The raspberry and maple syrup bring the sweetness, rather than the usual banana.

What should I use to peel beets?

I like using a y-shaped peeler, but a pairing knife will work too. The skin should be peeled because it can be a bit gritty.

Can I use roasted beets instead of raw beets for this smoothie?

Yes, roasted beets will bring more sweetness to the smoothie and deep flavor. If you have them on hand, use them!

    Where do you buy coconut butter?? I’ve looked at numerous stores & have never found it.

    • Amanda Paa says

      Hi Kathy! You can find at Whole Foods or at a co-op, usually buy the coconut oil. Sometimes they put it by the nut butters as well. You can also get it on Amazon.

    i’m right here with this gorgeous smoothie, amanda. cosmic because it was sometime recently that i queried in my mind if raspberry and beet would do it – and you’ve given proof that they totally do. i really, really like this combination. not to mention the hue! beautiful.

    MegaFood sounds like a great company! I love when I fine a company that fits within my food philosophy. This smoothie’s color is out of this world. No need for lipstick after drinking this! Sounds lovely.

    • amandapaa says

      I’m so glad you enjoyed reading this! I think it’s so important to find the companies that meet your needs, in a way that meets your philosophy too. The combination can sometimes be a struggle, so I’m grateful for Mega Foods. I’ve been taking their Adult B Centered as well, which I know I lack because I eat a smaller amount of meat compared to vegetables. all the love! xo

    I too have always been skeptical of supplements, but I love that you did your research and have found one that fits a different category – real food. Thanks for sharing! Also these photos are ridiculously pretty! i can’t get over the little glisten on the top by the berry – swoon!

    I will have to try the Daily Energy. I routinely take MF’s Blood Builder and love it. And you must know that these photos are just killing me right now. Super stunning, Amanda!
