This delicious breakfast smoothie is a nutritious and delicious way to kick off your morning. Although this combination works best in a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, you can still achieve good results in a regular blender. The trick is to start with small enough pieces and add them a little at a time.
This recipe calls for a golden beet because the coloring works well with the other ingredients. However, a red beet will work just as well, but it will change the presentation completely.
8 oz. water
½” piece of ginger root, peeled
3 T. fresh lime juice
1 small golden beet, peeled and cut into chunks
2 stalks fresh celery, rinsed and cut into chunks

6–8 ice cubes
Add all ingredients to blender and turn on to its lowest setting. Gradually increase the speed and continue blending until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated into the smoothie.
Pour into a frosted, heavy glass and serve immediately.
Blending time and techniques will vary depending on your blender.
