Blueberry Smoothie Recipe – You’ll never guess the Secret Superfood Ingredient!

Have you noticed I have been making a lot of purple and red recipes lately? I attribute this rosy compulsion to the proliferation of beets and blueberries that have made their way into my refrigerator in the past two weeks. Of course, my first inclination is to try out a new smoothie recipe!

I’ve made plenty of smoothies in the past, and one of them even included golden beets. 

I took home some dazzling red beets from my local CSA (Wickham Farms if you’re interested) and felt compelled to make a beautiful purpley-red drink with them.

Using only ingredients I happened to have on hand, this gorgeous concoction happened:

Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • 1 large red beet, cooked and peeled
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and cored
  • 1 peach, peeled and pitted OR 3/4 cup cut up pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup water

Instructions:

Blend all ingredients together on the highest speed setting of your blender. If it’s too thick and not blending well, you can add a little more ice water. If it’s not thick enough, add a banana or some more apple.

Note: I get my produce from Wickham Farms. You can Learn more about Wickham Farms here and check out all my favorite CSA-friendly recipes.
