Directions

  • Rinse 6 beets, then wrap in aluminum foil.
  • Bake at 350° for about an hour.
  • When the beets are cooled, trim off the top and use a spoon to peel the skin from the flesh easily. Store any extra beets in the fridge for future smoothies.
  • Place the water, cubed beet, mango, raspberry, & Greek yogurt in the blender and puree until smooth.


Cooking Tip

To make this recipe faster, purchase pre-cooked beets. Substitute 100% juice for the water & honey to add your own flavor. Add a half scoop of protein powder post-workout for recovery, or freeze it and top with grated chocolate for an Italian ice-like dessert treat.


Performance Fact

Mangoes are a great source of Vitamins A, C, and E, powerful and important parts of our antioxidant defense system to combat cell damage. They also contain folate, which helps form new DNA strands, and vitamin K, which helps with blood formation. Tart and sweet raspberries add a significant amount of fiber to the smoothie.
