Red Smoothie?  That's right not all healthy smoothies have to be green.  The taste of this red drink is unbelievable.  I have had it a few times this past week and I am overwhelmed how easy it goes down. 
Have you tried beets before?  Is it because you are intimidated by the delicious taste of beets?

Fred, did you just say beets were delicious?  Yes, I did.

When you add them to a smoothie, they taste wonderful.  It makes the smoothie sweet, cream and thick.

Below are the ingredients for the Fat 2 Fit Fred Red Smoothie:

  • 4-6 ounces of water
  • 4-6 ounces of unsweetened almond milk
  • kale (you choose the amount, the more there is, the more healthy it is)
  • spinach (same as kale)
  • 2 tablespoons of flax seed
  • 1/2 scoop of your protein choice
  • 1/4 piece of beet
  • 1 banana (cut in half)
  • 2 plums (cut up in smaller pieces without the seed)
  • 3-4 chunks of pineapple
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons of hemp seed
  • Ice (I typically add a lot in at the end)

The order (top to bottom) you see above is the way I put them in my Vitamix blender.  I always let the blender go until I can see that all items have been blended well and no chunks are left.  Sometimes I will need to add a bit more water to ensure it mixes very well.

NOTE: Let me know what you think if you decide to give this one a spin.  Feel free to reduce the fruit amount and increase the greens if you are worried about calories and "sugar".  Or if you want to use less items, reduce the liquids.
