365-Day Challenge

Strawberry Apple Beet Smoothie

Hi family, friends and fellow bloggers!

I’m excided to relaunch Ellie Bleu with new recipes, interviews, and book reviews.

Over the years I’ve flirted with plant-based nutrition. To be honest, I found it hard to fully commit. There’s a lot of prep-work involved if you want to stay clear from processed foods. Then I watched The Game Changers and saw how a plant-based diet helps elite athletes, veterans, and first responders. I started wondering if it would also aid those dealing with anxiety and PTSD. It was then when I decided to blog about my journey.

With my doctor’s thumbs-up, a few supplements, and extensive research, I’m ready to commit to my 365-day challenge. Yep. One year without dairy, meat, fish…turkey…sausage stuffing…Okay, I know its a little crazy to start this during the holiday season. I’ll need some suggestions on what to serve for family gatherings.

I got out my juicer and blender today and made a Strawberry Apple Beet Smoothie. This would be a fun one to make with little ones.

Strawberry Apple Beet Smoothie

Yield: 1 serving    Prep Time: 10 minutes    Total Time: 15 min

2 apples of your choice juiced *
2 beets juiced *
1 small frozen banana already peeled and cut into slices
4 frozen strawberries
3 tablespoons of hemp hearts

1. Clean and juice the apples and beets or boil them in water before blending.
2. Blend all ingredients together and enjoy!

*I made a huge batch of beet and apple juice. Then, I filled up ice-cube trays to have for later on. In the past, I’ve also peeled and boiled the beets and apples before blending them together.
