I saw this smoothie in a magazine and figured I’d try it. Beets, blueberries, red lentils, and avocado sounded pretty healthy and it looked very pretty so I gave it a try.
It didn’t taste that great.
But this is really unfair.
I realize now it was really because I’d just been eating ice cream before tasting it. I couldn’t believe something such a beautiful purple could taste like cool mushy creamy dirt.
After a few more sips it started tasting better. It really wasn’t that bad. I just don’t recommend eating ice cream right before.
Beet Blueberry Lentil Smoothie
- 2-3 beet slices cooked
- 1/2 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
- 1/4 avocado
- 1/4 cup red lentils cooked
- 1/2 cup milk, cow, soy, nut or water
- honey to taste
- lemon juice or lemonade concentrate to taste
- 2-5 ice cubes
add all to blender and blend until smooth. Serve before ice cream not after.
