Beet & Berry Smoothie created by Jesica

This smoothie is awesomely hearty and perfect before a run or workout. A fellow instagrammer shared with me that to ultra-marathoners, beet juice is “nature’s gatorade.” How cool is that!? So I thought, add some delicious mixed frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) and voila!

What’s In It (exact measurements are not important):

3 or 4 beets chopped up (use the greens too)

1 handful of frozen mixed berries (fresh are better if you have them, but frozen adds a nice chill to the smoothie, so no ice is needed)

Splash of almond milk

Splash of water

There you have some “natural gatorade”!

Enjoy! (doesn’t hurt that it has a pretty color to it, also!)
