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.

While not many find beets to be their vegetable of choice, this food is extremely healthy and beneficial to you. By adding it to your smoothie, beets will help lower blood pressure, blood sugar, fight inflammation, and promote digestion.

Strawberries are a fantastic fruit! They have the advantage of adding a natural sweetener without actually having sugar, and they contain a ton of vitamins!

When it comes to greek yogurt, you may not think much of it. Still, it is a healthy option instead of dairy, with very few calories and low in fat as well.

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.

Enjoy this delicious and nutritious smoothie as a morning treat, after a long workout, when you get home from work, or any time you feel hungry. Remember to serve it ice cold for better flavor!
