My #Smoothie Journey: What to do with root vegetable greens #vegetarian #recipe

IMG_0238Did you know that some root vegetables have greens that you can eat? I’ve tried beet and radish greens so far. Here is a recipe that was successful for me. I created this one, but the Blender Girl Smoothies cookbook has other, fancier ones. Happy drinking!

Beet Green Smoothie

serves 2

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbl chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup finely torn beet greens
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Blend this one a little longer than you usually do. The greens are hard to break down. The results are delicious!
