"Beet" the heat with this delicious smoothie!
Smoothie fans rejoice! This Mediterranean smoothie recipe manages to include some of the healthiest, least-used smoothie veggies around and still taste delicious.

I tried this and it was sooooo good. I have a problem with my liver so the beet juice is a plus. This is going to be something i will be making alot!! Thank you so much!
This may seem like a silly question…but where can one find beet juice at in the grocery store?? Thanks!
You can purchase beets in a can which have beet juice already. I prefer to make my own. Wash fresh beets, pat dry, preheat oven to 375 degrees, rub the outside of beets with a little olive oil, wrap in foil and roast for 50 – 60 minutes or until tender. All beets to cool at room temperature and peel. Add one beet to smoothie and you’ve got one healthy drink!
Toss all the above ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Or you can get fresh beets and a juicer and make your own nutritious beet juice. It is amazing how much juice comes out of one ugly beet!!!!!!
Brigette, Definitely!!! YUM, YUM. 🙂
This Mediterranean smoothie makes 2 servings, so does that mean we only eat 1/2 the recipe when doing the flush away the fat eating plan? THanks!
Yes, when doing the 2-Day Flush the Fat Away Plan, you can just half the recipe for the Mediterranean Smoothie.
I just started weight watchers and when I calculated the smart points it came to 0. Zero. How did you get 8?
Linda, I just recalculated and still got 8 Smart Points.
I have a huge intolerance to beets- any other type of vegetable juice with the same nutrients I can substitute?
Casey, What about golden beets? If not, any other root veggie is fine. Carrots are a great choice.
How much do I serve myself for breakfast? The whole thing?
Anne, You certainly can. I drink the entire recipe when having for breakfast.
Can uncooked beets be used?
Unfortunately, no. Just beet juice for this recipe.
