We absolutely adore this smoothie’s bright pink colour, courtesy of the phytonutrients in the beets and strawberries. Fruit gives the smoothie a sweet flavour, and you’ll be happily surprised by how the citrus calms the earthiness of the beets—so much so that you can barely taste them. Ginger gives this a little extra spicy kick, which will help altered taste buds and nausea. 

NUTRITION NOTE: The turmeric in this smoothie pro-vides potent anti-inflammatory properties, and the pinch of pepper helps increase the absorbability of the turmeric.



  • ½ cup unsweetened dairy-free milk
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut water
  • 2 tablespoon coarsely chopped beet (raw or cooked)
  • 10 small or 5 large strawberries, chopped
  • ½ banana, peeled
  • ⅓ cup orange segments
  • ½ teaspoon minced peeled ginger root
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • Pinch of pepper


  1. Add ingredients and blend together.
