Beet Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

I have been enjoying a smoothie or juice every morning for awhile now.  I really like making different ones by trying different fruits and vegetables.  Well, Ninja Kitchen messaged me on Twitter to try one with a beet.  A BEET.  That may not sound weird to you, but I will be honest…I was scared!  But, I did it!  I will openly admit that I bought the smallest beet I could find though for my 1st time using one 😉

Healthy Beet Blueberry Smoothie

For my 1st beet smoothie I used my small beet, cucumber, tart apples, and frozen blueberries.  Fresh blueberries would be fabulous as well, I just so happened to have frozen blueberries in my freezer.  I will admit, I LIKED IT!  I also loved the beautiful purple color 🙂

Here are some of the health benefits of the ingredients in this smoothie recipe:

Beets – They are very high in vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and they also contain vitamin B.

Blueberries – These beautiful blue…berries…are the King of Antioxidant Foods. Antioxidants protect our bodies from damage and can even help with anti-aging.

Apples – They are extremely high in antioxidants, fiber and flavanoids. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, so why not start adding them to your smoothies?

Cucumbers – These are great for rehydration. Cucumbers are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.

Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.

  1. Beets hmmm I would still be willing to try it I just worry about taste.My mom love them so this may be goo for her too.

  2. Ooh, I never would eat beets as a toddler or kid or adult! Heh heh. But this looks fantastic as a smoothie! Thanks

  3. This actually looks really good. I’m not a beet person myself, however I am willing to give it a shot since you said it tastes good. Thank you for sharing the recipe. =)

  4. I would never have thought of putting a beet in a smoothie. It is a pretty color. Will have to try. Thanks!

  5. I bet the coconut water helps. It looks interesting. People, including me, dont realize the importance of purple veggies.

  6. I think I would question using beets also. But the more I think about it – why not!! I love beets and the gardens harvest is always plentiful so this is a great idea. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us, can’t wait to try it. And knowing it came from Ninja only makes it that more special. My Ninja is my #1 small appliance!

  7. I don’t like beets but, in that context, they may be alright. I’m always looking for healthy drink recipes. I’m looking forward to trying it.

  8. I really don’t know how I feel about the beets but I’m sure my mom would love to give it a try.

  9. Beets are not an ingredient I would have considered for a smoothie. I think I’ll try it, so thanks for passing on the suggestion from Ninja Kitchen.

  10. Thanks so much for the Recipe for Beet Blueberry Smoothie Recipe! I like beets, however, I’m not too sure how I would like an uncooked beet in a smoothie. I guess I’m from the “old school ways” because whenever we made smoothies, it was always a fruit smoothie (never put vegetables in it). I have a question, did you put the greens from the beet in with your smoothie? So many people are using greens like spinach or kale. I’m not a fan of spinach, and, I’ve never tried kale! I’m so afraid to try to make a smoothie with vegetables because I don’t know if I would like it or not. I’m really not a big vegetable fan (especially the types that are used in the smoothies these days), however, I would like to be healthier! Did this smoothie taste more like blueberries? I have a few frozen bags of blueberries and I also have apples, however, no cucumbers or beets (other than canned). I guess what I’m trying to say is that I am really afraid to try these smoothies because I’m really afraid I will not like them. You said it was good and that you would make it again. I believe you, however, I’d love to know exactly what the flavor was like. Thanks so very, very much for sharing this smoothie recipe with all of us! I truly do appreciate it! Thanks so much! Michele 🙂

    • Hi Michelle. Don’t be afraid to add a handful of spinach or kale to your fruit smoothie. I do it all the time. You won’t taste the greens because the fruit (blueberries or strawberries) mask the taste. I use almond milk along with vanilla protein powder (i.e. Juice Plus) and all of this makes a fabulous drink!

      • I have started using more greens – I haven’t used Kale yet – but I definitely will! Thank you 🙂

  11. I may try this one! I eat beets rarely. But, I have smoothies almost daily. This could be one I put into the mix. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Yes, thanks fort his recipe. Beets are so healthy for you. They are blood cleansers. My favorite vegan burger is a beet burger made at a local cafe, so I know I will love this smoothie.

  13. I never would have thought of pairing beets and blueberries together but this does sound really good. I’ll have to grab some of both when I go to the store.

  14. i love beets, but this had me wondering about the taste at first. i am glad it taste good, because i love everything in it. i am going to try this.

  15. Never had a beet smoothie before so I don’t have a favorite recipe. I wouldn’t mind giving it a go though, as long as it had some berries in it.

  16. I really think Id like this. I love all the ingredients. I am so hungry for beets right now lol. Yummmm

  17. I do like beets, but I’m not sure I would want to drink them in a smoothie. It might be okay, but I would be scared to try it. Lol.

  18. I suspect that this is very healthy. It frightens me, I won’t even eat beets. I’d probably like it if I tried it not knowing that beets were in it.

  19. it looks pretty and it looks good but looks can be deceiving.the thought of beets in it scares me.i hate most veggies.i wonder if you can taste them.maybe if you didnt tell me they were in there you might be able to tricj me into drinking

  20. Love beets, love blueberries. love smoothies and purple is my favorite color, so this is a recipe that I will definitely be making!!!

    • Yes – it’s 1/3 Cup – Thank you for pointing that out – I will clarify that in the post. 1/3 cup IS one scoop 🙂 I like to put the 1/3 cup for those that may have lost the scoop (like me 😉 )

  21. This also sounded a bit crazy to me, adding beets but I do like it and love the color. I will definitely have to try
    this one out, I usually use frozen everything loll because it just seems easier for me..

  22. I really don’t mind beets at all, since my grandmother always made them, in fact she even dyed easter eggs with beet juice. so i think this would make it tasty and going to give it a try!

  23. Funny I should run across this post today. My husband brought in some beets pulled from our garden and said “Here’s some beets for your smoothie today” I told him I don’t put beets in smoothies, I juice them. This is because I never thought of using beets in smoothies. I love beets. So guess what kind of smoothie I’m making tomorrow?? Thanks so much for posting this!

    • You are more than welcome! That was the 1st time I have ever used a beet in my smoothie – and I was pleasantly surprised! I’m not scared of them anymore – woohoo 🙂

  24. This is a very good recipe. I have found it is not necessary to use 1/3 cup of JP vanilla shake mix – 1/4 cup is enough to blend in with all the flavors!
