How to use beets in smoothies
There are three ways to use beets in a smoothie recipe: raw, cooked, and frozen.
- Raw: peel and chop the beets into bite-sized pieces
- Cooked: purchase pre-cooked beets or boil/steam them yourself
- Frozen: chop cooked beets into cubes and store in the freezer overnight

Kaylie’s tips for perfecting this beet root smoothie recipe
- Use frozen fruit. In particular, I recommend using frozen bananas and frozen strawberries for this recipe. The best smoothie bowls are thick, creamy, and capable of holding all sorts of toppings. If your smoothie has a thin/runny consistency, the toppings will fall right through. Frozen fruit, especially bananas, help to create a thick consistency that’s similar to soft serve ice cream!
- How to freeze bananas? You should always freeze ripe bananas for smoothie bowls. A ripe banana contains a yellow peel with brown specks all over it. Simply remove the peel and place the bananas in a ziplock bag or container. Then, store them in the freezer; they keep for 1-2 months. Once you’re ready to use the bananas, chop them into 1-inch cubes and transfer to the blender.
- The amount of liquid changes the consistency of a smoothie. More plant-based milk creates a thinner smoothie while less plant-based milk creates a thicker smoothie. Use more or less depending on the power and speed of your blender. I recommend beginning with 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Only add more if it’s needed to get your blender moving.
- Get creative with toppings. The best part of a smoothie bowl is the toppings. Add coconut flakes or granola for a crunchy texture, and fresh berries to enjoy a burst of flavor with each bite! Chia seeds, hemp seeds, almonds, shredded coconut, buckwheat groats, pumpkin seeds, and nut butter are other great options.
