This Veggie Smoothie is a deliciously sneaky way to get an extra serving of veggies in your day. Bright, colorful, and packed with healthy veggies and fresh fruit, it’s both sweet and refreshing, perfect on a hot summer day.
Two delicious, super healthy smoothies layered together as one–what could be better? These berry beet and mango carrot smoothies are two of the best veggie smoothies out there, and combining them brings you double the flavor and double the health benefits.
Whether you’re looking to improve your digestive health, are on a weight loss journey, or have picky eaters to satisfy, this recipe has got you covered. Plus, this smoothie is an easy way to try something new and out of the box for breakfast with minimal effort and cleanup.
You can even adjust the recipe to your preferences–i.e. adding protein powder for an energy boost, peanut or almond butter for healthy fats, or coconut milk for creaminess. If you’ve got some fruits and veggies on hand to use up, look no further!
Best Veggies to Add to Smoothies
This recipe calls for beets and carrots, but you can also try dark leafy greens (kale, spinach, chard), sweet potatoes, celery, cucumber, butternut squash, or pumpkin. It’s technically a fruit, but avocado is also a great way to add healthy fats and makes for quite the creamy smoothie.
How to Make a Veggie Smoothie
First, make the berry beet smoothie – add the yogurt, milk, and beet juice to a blender or food processor, followed by the cooked beets and spinach, and finally, the frozen mixed berries. Blend on low, increasing the speed until fully blended (add more of your choice of milk/yogurt/juice if needed to reach your desired consistency).
Next, make the mango carrot smoothie – add the yogurt and milk to a blender or food processor, followed by the frozen mango and frozen chopped banana, and finally, the chopped carrots. Repeat the process of starting on low and increasing speed until fully blended, adding liquid as necessary/desired.
Finally, assemble your smoothie by alternating layers in each glass. Top each glass with a garnish of chia seeds and fresh fruit (if desired) and serve immediately.
How to Serve
Serve this smoothie immediately. You can garnish it with chia seeds and any fresh fruit you desire. It can also be served as a layered smoothie bowl with any desired toppings like fruit, nuts, seeds, and granola. It makes a great on-the-go breakfast, snack, or even a super healthy dessert.
Storage and Freezing
It’s best to serve this smoothie immediately, but it will stay fresh in an airtight container in your fridge for about 24 hours. I don’t necessarily recommend freezing it, but it will stay safe to eat in the freezer for up to three months (and can be thawed or enjoyed as an ice pop).
