Mango Beets Blast


It’s been so hot and humid lately, that this is a perfect, refreshing drink to jump-start your day or after a workout at the gym or just about anytime actually. This is inspired by a recipe I saw in the Prevention Magazine.

Chop the mango and freeze for 30 minutes. Meanwhile slice and cook the beet in a little water. Cool. Transfer the beets, frozen mango, orange juice, and almond milk. Add 3-4 mint leaves and pulse in a food processor.

  1. Try this! In a mixer – add: 1 banana or half a small mango (no skin), 1 small cup yogurt, 3-4 spoons sugar, a pinch of salt, 4-6 oz of ice-cold water, cilantro, basil, 1 tiny jalapeno (or a small piece of it), a tablespoon of ginger, 2 tablespoons honey – then turn on the grinder until everything mixes well together. Filter it – makes a very tasty drink for summer afternoons!
