The Benefits of Eating Beets

If you’re a lover of beets, then you may already know what a nutritional powerhouse they are.

If not, then do know that beets are packed full of antioxidants, including betalains (which gives red beets their bold color and helps reduce inflammation), folate (vitamin B9), and nitrates (which turns into nitric oxide, a natural blood pressure reducer). For more information on how beets affect the body, check out this article from Web MD.

So if you’re trying to include more beets in your diet, but don’t love eating roasted beets, then consider this smoothie for an easy way to implement this powerhouse food.

Growing and Preserving Beets at Home

The beets I used for this particular smoothie were frozen. You can purchase frozen beets from the store or grab some of your own frozen beets from the freezer. Here are some helpful articles all about growing, roasting, and freezing beets:

Freezing beets is one of the easiest ways to store them for long term, and they can just be defrosted for use in salads, or used frozen in delicious smoothies like this one.

I initially tried this recipe with half a banana instead of the frozen pineapple, but it didn’t quite sweeten the smoothie up enough for me. You could certainly substitute in banana for the pineapple, but if you do that, I’d increase the honey slightly to 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons.

Beet Smoothie Recipe

  1. To start, gather all of your ingredients together and grab your blender or smoothie maker. (I have a Ninja Smoothie Blender, and it’s wonderful!)
  2. Place frozen beets, pineapple, and blueberries in the blender.
