    I love beets, and the smoothie sounds delicious. Plus, it’s beautiful! I think the kid would be excited about it rather than stating that the smoothie is so “green” or so “ugly” (the browner versions I make) again. 🙂

      Thanks Andrea! I would love to hear what “the kid” thinks if he gives it a try 🙂

    Sounds wonderful. I miss beets so much. They contain fodmaps, as you know, and they are one food I can’t seem to even have just a small amount of without getting pain. It stinks! Pun intended…. Either way, I love the idea of adding them to a smoothie!

      I know…such a bummer about beets being high in FODMAPs-sorry you can’t enjoy them Gina 🙁

    I love smoothies but I do get why some people are put-off by the color. These, however, are SO gorgeous – no one could resist these. And love that they have so much good stuff in there!

    Okay, what color have you missed? Orange? Yellow?! I’ve made murky smoothies and brightly colored ones. Aren’t they the best?

    OOhh!! I just love those beats from TJ’s!! I’ve been eating them in salads. My only experience with a beet smoothie though was less than satisfactory, so I’m eager to give yours a go. We’ve been having veggie/green smoothies/Drinks every morning. I’m going to make this for my husband!

      Sorry your beet smoothie experience has been less than satisfactory so far Kim 🙁 The beet flavor can be really strong sometimes, but the Swiss chard and ginger in this smoothie help to mellow it out 🙂

    What a pretty color!
    I have yet to use beets when it comes to juicing or smoothies. After reading your post, I need to try!

      Thank Jeanette! I was going to buy kale at the store, then I saw the gorgeous Swiss Chard and thought it would be perfect in the smoothie. Glad I tried it 🙂

    I love green smoothies, but hey, I love pink smoothies too! I love smoothies in any color, in fact! My husband loves beets, but I’ve yet to put them in a smoothie. I might have to try this soon! 🙂

    Such a smart idea to throw in red chard!
