My son is obsessed with the color red right now, new red jacket, red cupcakes for his birthday, red comforter (you get the picture...) everything is red. So, needless to say I've been doing a lot of "red" smoothies as its the one thing this currently picky eater will guzzle down. 31/2 to 4 has been a tough stage for us in terms of what he'll eat, so I'll take it where I can get it. Here's what's in today's red smoothie!
2 cups frozen pineapple (if using fresh add ice etc)
1 cup your choice of strawberries or raspberries (I often alternate or even mix)
1 small beet (feel free to use more or less to your liking... note even a little bit of beet adds a lot of color)
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup coconut water
1 cup+ loosely packed spinach
Add all the ingredients and mix in your Vitamix or high speed blender. If you are using a traditional blender, I'd recommend cutting up the beet and it with the mixing the liquid and greens first and then adding the other ingredients.
Enjoy! Happy Thursday!
