Rated 5 out of 5 by MazzyBird from Healthy, almost raw, vegan smoothie. Seeing that I had all three main ingredients on hand I decided to try this recipe. I did alter it though. I added silken tofu for a thickener and for a protein component. I also added 2 handfuls of beet greens and 4 clementines. I probably added 1 1/2 the amount of ginger, too. I love ginger. Oh, and I didn't bother to steam the beets, just cut them into 1/4s and put them in. It's a beautiful red color. My smoothies are various shades of green, so it was a pleasant surprise. This smoothies is delicious. I'm glad I made a full blender worth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenLav from I don't even like beets. I have been looking for a way to consume beets since I am not a fan of the earthy dirt taste they give off. After seeing the reviews on this drink, I thought I would give it a try. All I can say is yum and yay!! I have found a way to enjoy beets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by torched from I love this smoothie It's delicious. The second time I made it I added some briefly soaked chia seed for more nutrition, and didn't notice any difference. This one will be in my smoothie rotation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sooz from too much unnecessary prep No need to core the apple or peel the carrots or the beets. The great thing about the vitamix is it blends everything. Use cold water too, not just ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leelu2 from Delicious! I made this as a puree for my baby. I skipped the lemon and it still taste really delicious. I'm freezing the extras and hope that it won't defrost too runny. If it does, I have no problem drinking this myself! Will definitely make this again for the rest of the family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisa C from Yummy! A Keeper I followed the recipe, except I added just under a cup of plain yogurt because I like to add protein to every smoothie I make. Added a small amount of cold water too. Made plenty, about 2-12oz servings. Next time, I plan on making this with raw beets. Later in the year, I will probably try this with orange juice instead of lemon. Very yummy! A good accompaniment with lunch or dinner. I’ll be making this smoothie quite often. It helps that my friends have a surplus of beets! I get to help them out. Yum!
