I love this smoothie, I hate beets and I think the lemon in this smoothie almost completely masks the beet flavor, I also add about 1 tbsp. of ground organic golden flax and shake in my blender bottle right before I drink it, if you do it in the Vitamix it becomes too thick and clumpy. I do however but full flax seeds and grind them in my Vitamix and then store them in a plastic bag in the fridge. I really love this smoothie, it tastes so clean and fresh and healthy but it's still super delicious. I didn't add any greens to this one simply because I already make so many green smoothies and it IS possible to over do greens, so I am trying to make smoothies that are packed with vitamins but that don't always involve spinach, kale, collards and chard.
What goes into this smoothie:
1/2 beet peeled
2 carrots peeled
1/2 cucumber with skin (cleaned)
Juice of one whole lemon
