Beet-Berry Smoothie!

Shown below is what my daily beet-berry smoothie looks like, and the recipe!

Recipe:

1 lb of mixed frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries, cranberries)

1 large beet  (8-13 oz.)

1 vanilla bean (2-3 grams)

Put it all in the blender with ~10 oz. of water, blend, and drink!

For an extra boost of taste and nutrition, I also mix my beet-berry smoothie with my spinach-ginger-pineapple smoothie (https://atomic-temporary-71218033.wpcomstaging.com/2015/08/09/pineapple-spinach-smoothie/). Enjoy!

Pineapple-Spinach Smoothie!

In a previous post, with the goal of reducing all-cause mortality risk I wrote about obtaining (at least) 1000 micrograms of Vitamin K per day. To do that, I’ve begun making pineapple-spinach smoothies!

To make it, I used 8 oz of fresh pineapple, which I put in the freezer for 1 hour (because I like frozen drinks). Then, I added 6 oz of baby spinach, 15 grams of fresh ginger, ~3 oz of water, and blended it. All that adds up to 170 calories, 821 micrograms of Vitamin K, and it’s delicious!
