Pretty Delicious Mango Beet Banana Smoothie with Coconut Milk

Summer is a great time to enjoy a cool, refreshing, and nourishing treat such as this Pretty Delicious Mango Beet Banana Smoothie with Coconut Milk. The name says it all. I use frozen mangos, beets, bananas, and some unsweetened coconut milk (almond milk works well too!).

When ripe, peel the mangos and bananas, then freeze them. I roast beets covered in foil in a 350 degree oven for about an hour, cool, and peel off the outer skin. I use beets in sautés, salads, and even chocolate cake and freeze the remains for smoothies.  A little beet goes a long way and, in addition to its nutrition, beets add a pretty pink color to your smoothies.

Blend all ingredients in a high speed mixer, such as Vitamix to reach desired consistency. If youare lucky to have any left overs, you can freeze them as popsicles to be enjoyed another time. Enjoy!
