Pink Power Smoothie

Happy New Year! Can you believe that it’s already 2014?

I’ve got a healthy smoothie recipe for you today because I know many of you have made a resolution to be healthier in the new year or at the very least, you want to do a little holiday detox.

This vibrant pink smoothie is the perfect way to kick off the year! I have told you this before I think, but I have a really hard time with green juices or smoothies. I feel like I have tried them all and they just don’t do it for me. Though I like eating veggies, I have a hard time drinking them so most green smoothies and juices make me gag. Most smoothies I make just contain berries and yogurt, maybe a handful of spinach. Kind of boring.

When I spotted this smoothie, I knew I wanted to make it immediately because 1. the color. It’s hot pink! and 2. it wasn’t a green drink. This smoothie has beets (which is obviously where the gorgeous color comes from!), celery, and avocado which were firsts for me to add to a smoothie and they totally work! The smoothie also has strawberries and apple to add a fruity and sweeter taste to the smoothie. This pink smoothie contains so many great nutrients, healthy fats, vitamins, and antioxidants!

    I do love the color. I haven’t had a smoothie with coconut oil or celery. Since I have a smoothie every morning this one will be easy to fit in.

    You’re right, it seems all the detox smoothies are green. This is a nice break– and it looks so much more delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    Ok Stephanie, I have to make this smoothie for the color alone. Not to mention all of those amazingly good-for-you ingredients!

    Um, I’m kind of in AWE at how bright and delicious this incredible smoothie is! I can’t believe avocado and celery are in there — look at that color! Amazing.

    I made this this morning. I didn’t have celery and I substituted pomegranate for the strawberries. It’s really tasty. You can clearly taste the beets but that doesn’t bother me. It’s tasty and healthy. Good smoothie!

      Thanks, Charissa! Pomegranate is a great idea. You can taste the beets in this one, but you might find the flavor not as strong using strawberries.
