  • Food Processor
  • Wooden spoon
  • Smile with a "can do attitude!"


  • 2 cup Non-dairy milk plant-based milk; almond, oat, coconut
  • 2 Ripe bananas sliced frozen
  • cup Strawberries sliced and frozen
  • cup Beets * raw, cubed, and frozen
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder 100% Cacao Special Dark Hershey's Cocoa
  • 1 Medjool date pitted optional
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds ground
  • 1 scoop Plant-based protein powder optional...I use Orgain Organic Protein Powder


  • Blend: Blend high speed frozen ripe bananas, strawberries, beets, non-dairy milk, cocoa powder, date, vanilla extract, chia seeds, and protein powder in a food processor until smooth & creamy (not runny).
  • Pour: Pour from food processor into four 8 ounces or two 16 ounces glasses. Don't judge! It's just that delicious.
  • Serve: Serve immediately. Have fun and enjoy!


* Taste and add additional natural sweetener to your liking.
* Prepare ahead of time by keeping frozen ripe bananas, diced beets, and fruit stored in the freezer.  
* Optional toppings: Add vanilla bean/extract, dark chocolate, coconut whipped cream, or beetroot powder. If you add beetroot powder, it will give it a more earthy taste and crimson color. If you add more cocoa/cacao powder, you'll have a deeper chocolate flavor.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate.
