Red Smoothie Recipe

Lots of great nutrition in this yummy Red Smoothie. | tiaskitchen.com

When you live on smoothies, you really need to come up with some variety in your recipes. At least, I do.

I love variety in my life and certainly in my food. But this restricted diet thing is not lending itself to a lot of variety. That’s for sure.

So I am trying to find different ways to come up with new smoothie recipes. One way I am choosing is to go by color.

Hence, the Red Smoothie you see here.

And, changing up the color also gets more variety of vitamins. Always good.

In fact, did you know that red beets have Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron, vitamins A, B & C, beta-carotene, folic acid and fiber. They lower blood pressure and inflammation. And they helps detoxify your blood and liver.

Wow! Ok, yes please!

In fact my only problem with beets is that they stain everything. So, I solve that problem by throwing them in the blendtec and let it do the work. Whew!

Ginger is good for nausea and digestion.

Carrots are great for munching and saying, “Eh, what’s up doc?”

Also carrots are great source of vitamin A. Eyes, baby! Eyes! I need all the help I can get.

So here is a Red Smoothie to add the arsenal for good health.

    Beeeea-u-ti-ful! But that much ginger? It’s not too much? Love that last pic, Tia. Real food is the most beautiful and I like the backdrop of the blue dish towel. :-)

      Wellllllll, I have learned to love ginger being around my husband’s family. He eats the pickled stuff on its own at the table while waiting for sushi. I think it just gives it a little kick. This also makes a lot so it ends up being 2 servings.

      Isn’t that dish towel great. I went nuts at Cost Plus for my birthday. My own special present for being so good at being me. LOL

      xoxo,
      Tia
