Vicki’s Favorite Smoothie – Vicki Parsons, Butler Center for Dance & Fitness Director

“I’m a huge fan of blueberries and put them in just about everything. This is my favorite afternoon smoothie boost recipe. It also makes a great dessert smoothie. It’s super healthy and a pretty color!”

 

Ingredients*:

  • ½ cup fresh cooked beets (I make about 3 cups and freeze ½ cup servings in individual Ziploc bags for the next recipe)
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
  • 3 or 4 fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 individual 5 oz container or about ½ cup of vanilla flavored Greek Yoghurt (frozen ahead of time – I buy individual greek yoghurt cups and store in freezer for use)

*I use fresh ingredients but you can also buy frozen. Beets and blueberries are both super-food powerhouses

Instructions:

  1. Cook and peel 3 to 4 beets. Chop and use ½ cup for recipe and freeze the rest.
  2. Add beets, blueberries, strawberries and orange juice to a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Scrape down the sides once or twice to make sure everything is blended.
  3. Squeeze fresh orange juice or use a natural orange juice and add to the mixture.
  4. Add frozen Greek yoghurt. If you don’t have frozen it’s still yummy
  5. Blend until yoghurt is broken down and well blended into the mixture
  6. Enjoy!
