Tips for Making Creamy Strawberry Beet Smoothie
This smoothie has a light beet flavor that's well balanced by the dates and strawberries. If you're not a fan of beets, you can decrease the amount to 1/4 cup and will hardly notice them.
To make this a green smoothie, add a large handful of baby spinach - just know the color will change.
Any milk can be used in place of the coconut milk.
Each 11 oz serving has approximately 6 grams of protein, but you can add more collagen to increase the protein.
