Cool Red Strawberry Smoothie

Cool Red Strawberry Smoothie

A cool and refreshing Strawberry Smoothie recipe made with California Strawberries.

Who doesn’t love a refreshing, sweet and healthy smoothie made with just the right ingredients? It’s amazing the different ways they can be made. One of the best things that has happened to smoothies recently is that we’re learning just how tasty the addition of veggies can be.

What’s most fascinating is that adding veggies doesn’t detract from the sweetness of smoothies when the right ingredients and proportions are added.

This smoothie, created by registered dietitian Sylvia Klinger, is a perfect example with a combination of strawberries and vibrant and healthy beets. The taste is as wonderful as the color!

    oh I was just commenting on FB about adding a beet – I love this smoothie and want to try it – even though it isn’t perfect season, the strawberries look pretty good at whole foods.
