Deep Ruby Beet Smoothie
This is a smoothie that is unarguably healthy.
You see, when I came up with this one, I was in the mood for something that just SCREAMED healthy right at my face, so I grabbed a whole bunch of fruits and veggies from the fridge and just PACKED them real tight into my Magic Bullet.
Did I say PACK? I mean PACK!
Just take a look at this…
I had a really hard time getting everything to fit, but I miraculously did it though, without spilling it all over the place. Or, well, almost not. I had close to almost no spillage. 😉
Don’t ask why I was so stubborn and didn’t switch to the bigger, better, more power food processor. I guess in my mind, a single serving smoothie HAS to be made in the very convenient small sized Magic Bullet. That’s just the way it goes.
And I also HAD to pack ALL of what I had decided was going to go into that smoothie. I couldn’t leave ANYTHING out. Not one single ingredient.
Did I ever tell you I was weird like that sometimes? 😉
So anyway, that smoothie might look a little bit strange, but it was surprisingly good, trust me. Good enough for me to repeat the experience twice after the initial test. And yes, all three times I struggled to cram everything into my teeny weeny little Magic Bullet.
MAYBE next time I make it, because there will be a next time, I’ll upgrade to my real food processor… make my life easier for a change!
But yummy healthy!
