Beet, Orange, Carrot, and Banana Smoothie

There are things people shouldn't waste any time in telling you.


  • 2 large beets chopped
  • 3 oranges - Peeled and removed of pith roughly chopped
  • 3 medium carrots chopped
  • 1/2 inch knob of ginger optional
  • Cold water enough to fill a 9 cup blender or 36-48 ounces
  • 3-4 very ripe large bananas chopped
  • Flax seed optional


  • To a blender add beets, oranges, carrots, and ginger (if using). Add cold water to the blender, right up to the fill line. Blend until smooth, about 3-5 minutes, depending on the power of your blender.
  • Turn off the blender and strain the solids over a cup with a lip. I use a 1 quart measuring cup I purchased at the .99 store. Press on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the solids.
  • Return the strained mixture to the blender and add the bananas. Blend on high until smooth. Taste and if you find it is not sweet enough, add another banana.
  • Serve over ice.
  • Makes about 7 cups.
