The only thing more beautiful than the mulberry hue of this smoothie is the host of health benefits you get from it. Beets are loaded with Vitamin C and fiber, as well as anti-inflammatory and detoxifying nutrients. They're naturally sweet and make a great pair with blueberries and fresh mint. Blend it up and drink to your health!
Trim top off beet, peel, and grate on large holes of a box grater. Grating beets can be a messy proposition, so place your grater directly in a bowl to make cleanup easier. Measure out ½ cup grated beet and reserve rest for another use (like topping for a salad or stirring into a sauce or spread). Halve lime and juice half. Cut two rounds from other half for garnish and juice remainder. Stem mint and reserve a couple leaves for garnish.
Add all ingredients to blender canister (reserve mint leaves and lime rounds for garnish). Add 2 cups ice and blend on high 2 minutes, or until smooth.
Serve and Drink Up!
Divide smoothie between two glasses, garnish with reserved mint and lime rounds, and enjoy!
