The coloring of this smoothie is even deeper than my red velvet couches that my dad stupidly purchased five years ago despite the fact that we had five dogs and a cat and velvet is impossible to clean.
The “surprise” in this smoothie is the spinach!
– 1 beet, peeled and cut into chunks
– 1 huge handful of frozen strawberries, chopped if they’re big
– 2 heaping handfulls of spinach
– handful of red grapes
– generous splash of orange juice
Since the frozen strawberries and the beets were so hard, I blended bits at a time. I tossed the beet in there with some juice and gave it a whirl, then some strawberries, the spinach and grapes, and the rest of the strawberries.
It’s delicious! And so pretty too. And it lives up to its name: I cut my thumb while chopping the strawberries!
