You GUYYYYYZ!! 

Seriously, this smoothie rocks my socks…my blue, fuzzy, woolen socks! You know, the ones I have to wear each and every time I want to drink this…along with my baggy sweat pants, my oversized robe, and the “decorative” blanket from the back of the couch. Well, unless I’ve just come back from hot yoga.

Then I sit outside with it…in ma birfday suit! 😉

But that’s cool too, because you know what? This smoothie doesn’t judge. Nope, this smoothie is part of the new age movement…the one where ALL us ladies get to spend the day lounging on velvet couches, or sprawled out naked on our back porch*, and feeling like princesses.

So grab you a blender, toss in a few beets, and listen for your prince. Then go shoe shopping…online, because clothing is still optional!

    Yum! This looks amazing! I’ll have to pick up more beets this this week :)

  2. This looks SO fantastic. Love it.

  3. Girl… just wow. These pics? Stunning! <3

  4. So i have to admit that I’m a little afraid of working with raw beets (because i’m afraid I’ll end up with a permanently pink kitchen) but I might have to get over this for this smoothie. Because 1. it looks amazing and 2. if I eat/drink spring-y foods maybe that’ll make spring get here sooner?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      1. It IS amazing and 2. Heck YEAH!! Don’t be skeered of the beets, mama! Just don’t wear white and work close to the sink! Oh and wash your cutting board with soap and water IMMEDIATELY! But really, other than my hands getting a little pink while peeling them, I think it’s a lot easier to plop them into a smoothie raw then trying to work with the slippery little buggers after cooking! Ha!

  5. Ohhhh… with the beet greens too! I love it. Totally going to drink this post-workout tomorrow. Sans pants. Coming for glute day? 😉

  6. Kaylee says:

    All about the beets these days :) I’ve grown to love em! Any suggestions for a non-dairy alternative for the cottage cheese in this?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      ActuallEEEEEEEEy…I have a vegan variation of this recipe going up this week, because I was curious myself! I’ve played around with some of the spices/additions too, but the main switch was 1/2 cup of firm tofu in place of the cottage cheese! Workd BEET-ifully! Sorry, I couldn’t resist! 😉

  7. Ahhh I need to make more things using beets! You inspired me again. This is a BRAVE smoothie though. I do like beets in my juice but haven’t tried it in smoothie… maybe, maybe I shall..

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      If you like beet juice, then you’re already there! Most people are just afraid of the flavor of beets, but honestly, in this smoothie, I don’t think that “earthy” flavor they tend to have is very strong…must be the addition of the avocado kinda balancing it out. Now THAT is what a smoothie is all about…creamy avocado buttery goodness! I can’t believe I forgot how much a difference it makes! Not sure I’ll be making a smoothie again soon without it! :)

  8. I’ve never had beets before, so I think this will be a great start to ease into them!
    This smoothie looks so vibrant and thick. Oh my.. <3

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      It REALLY would! I know beets aren’t really for everyone, but I honestly think their somewhat “earthy” flavor (which a lot of people tend to shy away from) isn’t as pronounced in this smoothie. And oh my gosh, the creaminess! I can’t believe I forgot how much I love avocado in smoothies…makes a HUGE difference!

  9. Sarah Pie says:

    I’ve never had beets either but you make them look soooo good I may just have to give them a try. I love the beet-ified logo for the link up too!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Never? As in never ever?? Oh girl, they are definitely worth a try! I know they’re not for everyone though…I think you either love ’em or hate ’em! But in this smoothie, the “earthy” flavor that most people aren’t really down with, isn’t overpowering. And seriously, the creaminess can’t be BEET! Sorry, I had to! 😉

  10. Kat says:

    Darling, you know how I feel about beets, but this little gem? Oh I’m quite certain I can handle this little thing! All I have to do to the beets is dump them in the Vita?! Even I can’t mess that one up!! LOVE the addition of avocado as well. Can you believe Ive never added avocado to a smoothie? I know…shame on me…

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh girl, you MUST try it with avocado! I swear, there is just NO comparison to the creaminess that it lends! Actually, the last time I made this smoothie, I completely forgot the avocado! Once I took a taste, I was like…no, something’s missing here! Yeah, I totally threw that thing back in the blender with the avocado! Haha! Doooooo it! 😉

  11. Lyric says:

    The colour is so pretty! Very beet-i-ful if I do say so myself 😉

  12. This intro is perfect. Short, sweet, with a side of sass and a lot of funny. The pictures are stunning too, and you know how I like to drink my beets. It’s my favorite way to consume them. Plus they’re great for your liver, which counteracts all that delicious wine you’ve been drinking. Well done my friend.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Right? And with all the hot yoga? It’s ALL about the balance my friend! I got this shit in the BAG! hahaa!

  13. Lol I laughed at the thought of you in your birfday suit sipping back on this beetiful smoothie 😉

    I am not a beet fan but I could get on board with this smoothie sans beet but it may defeat the purpose too much.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Honestly, the beet flavor isn’t really pronounced in this smoothie much at all…I think the banana and the avocado help to balance it out well because I didn’t get any of the classic “earthiness” that’s typical in anything with beets!

  17. So I’m one of the weird people who’ve never had a beet. The color of that smoothie is so amazing I might have to try this! Also I’d love to be transported to a castle where I can drink smoothies. In the nude. 😉

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Really? Never? As in never EVER?! That’s it…I’m bringing you a jar of pickled beets to Blend! 😉
