In the Kitchen

Beet and Cherry Smoothie


10 oz unsweetened almond milk such as Califia

3 tbs Beauti-fuel

1 raw beet (peeled)

1 cup frozen cherries

1 tsp hemp seeds

dash of Belgarian rose water


Add all ingredients to the blender and blend for 60 seconds. If you don’t have a robust blender, use cooked beets.

I borrowed this recipe from my dear friend, Rebecca Leffler’s, book Très Green, Très Clean, Très Chic. She paired the unusual combination of beets and cherries and it worked beautifully – earthiness juxtaposed against sweetness. I added some hemp seeds and a dash of rose water help intensify the skin’s radiance.
