It’s time to gather your ingredients!
To make this yummy smoothie, you will need a beet, strawberries, cocoa, greek yogurt, and honey. However, you can try other ingredients, like cashew milk, coffee powder, and turnip.

Finally, the cocoa powder in this recipe is a great addition to give a boost of sweetness and bitterness. Plus, cocoa is a great antioxidant too, which makes this smoothie protective against oxidative stress.
All you need to do is place all the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Add ice and blend again for a minute or so.
