Nosh On Extra Nutrients With These Smoothie Recipes

Nosh on extra nutrients with these smoothie recipes


Rich in the antioxidant betaine, beets flush the liver, stimulate the lymphatic system, and oxygenate the blood. This blend’s flavor is sweet and spicy—far from earthy—thanks to strawberries, apple, lemon, cinnamon, and cayenne. The ingredients power this potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, alkalizing, detoxifying, weight-loss machine.


1¼ cups coconut water or water (plus more as needed)

1 medium red beet (cooked, if using a conventional blender), peeled and chopped

1 apple, skin on, cored and chopped ½ small avocado, pitted and peeled ½ lemon, peeled and seeded 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more to taste Pinch cayenne pepper 2 cups frozen strawberries 5 drops alcohol-free liquid stevia (optional)


1 tablespoon açaí powder 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil 1 teaspoon chia seeds

Throw all ingredients into your blender and blast on high, about 1 minute, until smooth and creamy. Reprinted with permission from The Blender Girl Smoothies, by Tess Masters.
