Red Fruit and Vegetable Breakfast Smoothie

Recipe: Red Fruit and Vegetable Breakfast Smoothie

Summary: Naturally sweetened and colored by banana, strawberries and beet, this “red things” smoothie makes a satisfying breakfast.


  • Organic Baby Beets from Melissa's Produce on Shockingly Delicious [1]1/2 a ripe banana
  • 5 big strawberries (we are spoiled by the abundance of California strawberries!)
  • 1 Melissa’s Produce Organic Baby Beet (already steamed and ready to use; beets are naturally sweet)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (I juiced an orange off the backyard tree) [*see variation below]
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 1/8 teaspoon (tiny splash) vanilla extract


  1. Add all ingredients to the Magic Bullet (or blender) and whirl for a minute or so until well combined, thick and smooth.
  2. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
  3. Fancy food blogger straw is optional!
  4. Serves 1.

Original recipe by Dorothy Reinhold | Shockingly Delicious


Instead of orange juice, add a half slice of watermelon, cut into chunks. It will add sweetness and liquid to the drink, just like the orange juice does.
