Uncle Matt’s Berry Beet Smoothie
We know beets can be a touchy topic depending on who you ask. People either love them or can’t stand them, but here at Uncle Matt’s Organic, we are obsessed with them. So much so, we concocted this Organic Berry Beet Smoothie to pay homage to one of our favorite root vegetables! Not only are beets rich in antioxidants, but their high concentration of nitrates also helps to lower blood pressure. Pair them with fiber-packed berries, kale that is loaded with Vitamin K, plus your daily dose of vitamin C from Uncle Matt’s OJ, and you have yourself a sippable superstar.
3 cups of organic mixed berries, fresh or frozen, see note
1/2 of a small organic beet, 1/2 cup chunks
2 ripe organic bananas
3/4 cup organic kale leaves, stems removed
1 piece of organic ginger, about 2 teaspoons
2 cups of Uncle Matt’s Organic OJ
1 cup ice cubes, see note
NOTE: If you are using frozen berries, omit the ice. Frozen berries are good all year and keep the smoothie cold and thick.
