Here are just a few of the amazing concoctions that make for a super smoothie that includes one of nature’s most nutritious vegetables: beet greens.

Ingredients and directions
Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of chopped beet greens (with thick stems removed!), 1 medium-sized banana, 1 tablespoon of chia seed gel or the seeds themselves, and an optional sweetener of your choice (maple syrup or honey will do the trick).

Mix all ingredients, plus an ice cube or two, in the blender for no more than 60 seconds. Stop after about 30 seconds and see how you like the thickness. At that point, decide whether it’s “good to go” or needs a tad more time on the blades.
