Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1



  • 1 juicy clementine or tangerine, peeled and broken into segments
  • 1 small beet, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup red berries of choice (such as raspberries or strawberries)
  • ½ ripe banana, preferably frozen
  • 2 tablespoons raw or roasted almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch fine sea salt


  • In an upright blender, combine the clementine segments, beet, berries, banana, almond butter, chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, and sea salt. Blend until completely smooth. Enjoy immediately!


  • I'm recommending a high speed blender for this one because raw beet, as you may know, is quite firm.
  • This smoothie is equally good with a cooked beet though--maybe even a touch creamier!
