I like that you have provided a basic formula for constructing a smoothie. Also, working in herbs and spices for added nutrition and flavor. Looking forward to making it.
As written, how many calories in this?
Hi Linda! We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one
Can you add ice to the blender, or would that take away from the taste?
Hi, Juan! You can certainly add ice. It would make the texture more slushy rather than creamy, but you might prefer that! Let us know if you try it!
Will it be fine to throw in some lemon juice or will it ruin the taste of this smoothie?
Hi, Tushar! This recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, so I would go ahead and add it! Happy smoothie sipping!
Thank you for the recipe. I tried it and the smoothie is just so delicious and healthy.
can the leaves from the beets be used for blending
Yes, they are totally safe to eat, Carolyn and by all means throw them in the blender. They’re also great sauteed in some olive oil and salt and pepper. Enjoy!
At last, I found the information that I needed. I always tried to get weight loss smoothies and have been confused on what to use or what not. Thanks.
~so I read the comments before asking this; how many detox smoothies is recommended daily?
When she says 2 servings, is this 2 servings for one person
Hi, Natalya! Two servings means that it makes enough for two meals. You can either share with a friend or save the second serving for later.
Beautiful! I never grow tired of healthy smoothies, and Tess has such great tips for incorporating a balance of different ingredients. Such a quick and easy way to get more veggies into my kids, too. Thanks for sharing.
This is such a great resource for taking smoothies to the next level! I stopped making smoothies for a long time because I was bored of the same old berry-banana-kale smoothies. Tess showed me how to add cayenne, bell peppers, rosemary and parsley to my smoothies and the results blew my mind. This is a great guide for making awesome smoothies at home!
I always enjoy a bit of tart and spice in my smoothies. However, too often have I had a smoothie come out unbalanced in flavor or texture so this little guide is super handy! Nice to have some basic steps to follow instead of always just winging it! Thank you!
Smoothies are hands-down the best way I can think of to get a healthy amount of greens. My smoothies were totally boring, verging on “ugh,” until I met Tess. She’s more than a smoothie-maker — she’s a flavor whisperer. I wish I had that woman’s palate!
I love anything Tess makes! She’s so talented! She throws cayenne into a smoothie and it turns out to be the world’s best-kept secret. Thanks for sharing her tips!
This looks so lovely. The strawberry/beet combination sounds like perfection. I think I’ve got every ingredient in the house right now, and you’ve inspired me to have a smoothie for dinner! Yum!
Great ideas! But organic, please.
I am all about the smoothies these days!
I never tried broccoli in my smoothie. I will have to try that. Thanks for the tips.
I love this guide! Thanks for sharing =)
I always toss a slice of turmeric root in my detox smoothies. For me it has been WONDERFUL for alleviating my back pain. From what I’ve read, it’s a natural analgesic. I like your base recipe, though. I have to try it this week. Thanks, Tess!
I love turmeric, isn’t it wonderful? So naturally anti-inflammatory.
