INGREDIENTS
  • 3-4 medium beet leaves (about 1 cup chopped greens)
  • 2-3 frozen bananas
  • 8-10 fresh mint leaves (add more for extra minty flavor)
  • 1/3 cup vegan yogurt*
  • 1 scoop of unflavored plant-based protein powder, such as Vega or Plantfusion, for extra protein!
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Optional Toppings
  • Raw cacao nibs
  • Shredded coconut
  • Chocolate chips
*For a sweeter taste, use vanilla or honey coconut-milk yogurt.

DIRECTIONS

1. Buy organic beet greens when available.

2. Thoroughly and gently rinse beet greens and mint leaves. Remove beet greens and mint leaves from stems. Save stems for an awesome beet stem side-dish.

3. Blend almond milk, mint leaves, and beet greens until smooth. Add frozen bananas and yogurt and blend, adding more liquid if needed.

4. Top with chocolate chips, raw cacao nibs, or shredded coconut.
