Mediterranean Smoothie

Mediterranean Smoothie

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

If you’re not a beet lover don’t worry, there isn’t enough beet juice in this yummy smoothie to make the taste overpowering. As a matter of fact, there is just a hint of beet taste and only enough to make your taste buds ask, “I wonder what’s in this smoothie? Whatever it is, taste yummy”.

Healthy smoothies are such a delight. They taste great and are just filling enough to satisfy your hunger. They make great meal replacements, but smaller servings are also appropriate for snacks. Many people love to use them to refuel after an intense workout. The best smoothie recipes incorporate both fruits and veggies, but use a balance so the smoothie has a sweet, almost dessert-like taste.  Even kids love drinking smoothies!

Our site features a wide variety of smoothie recipes. Check out a few of our best here and here. You can also check out a few of our favorites from our collection of Pinterest smoothie recipes. No matter what your taste buds are craving or what your body needs for a boost of energy, there is a smoothie recipe that can help!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups loosely packed baby spinach (organic)
  • 1/2″ slice fresh ginger root
  • 1 frozen banana (pre-sliced)
  • 1 small mango
  • 1/2 cup beet juice (beets originate in the Mediterranean)
  • 1/2 cup skim milk or unsweetened almond milk
  • 4-6 ice cubes

Directions

Note: 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!!!!!!

    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?
