Blood Red Surprise May 24, 2012

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!
