Red Rooster Smoothie

Red Rooster Smoothie

I am in love with light smoothies right now.

Just a touch of fruit, a little water, a bunch of veggies and; if my body needs it, a scoop of protein powder, seeds or healthy oils, and I’ve got a big, summertime smile painted right across my face.

Red Rooster Smoothie-9252 The family and I; Kevin, my little sister, her boyfriend, Mom and Dad (plus our two dogs), have spent the last couple of days camping in British Columbia. Friday, we loaded up a large cooler with cucumbers, spinach, beets, berries, grapes, oranges, peaches and protein powder, all for making smoothies. We’ve kayaked, golfed, went for glorious walks in the sunshine, napped… It’s been quite fun. Of all the different smoothies we’ve experimented with, the Red Rooster has been everyone’s favorite, by far! Red Rooster Smoothie-9302 To print, email or text this recipe, click here.

A bright red smoothie made with loads of veggies and a touch of fresh fruits.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 strawberries
  • 2 slices of raw red beet, chopped (approx. 2 tablespoons)
  • 15 green grapes
  • ½ cucumber, skin removed
  • ½ orange, skin removed
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • 4-6 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to the jug of your blender in the order they are listed and blend for 20-30 seconds, until smooth.
  2. Serve immediately.
Notes
Adding protein powder or chia seed into the mix will help with natural separation of the ingredients. I don’t mind the separation (I just swish the mixture around a bit as I'm drinking it and it tastes fine!) but it’s a preference thing.

Interested in adding a boost of protein, healthy fats or fiber? Vega One protein powder would be fabulous in here. 3 tablespoons of shelled hemp seeds or 1 tablespoon of chia seeds would add protein, fiber and healthy fats. 1 tablespoon of flax oil would help lower your cholesterol and maintain a healthy digestive system. Red Rooster Smoothie-9295 I’d love to know, what is your favorite ingredient to add to your smoothies? Are you in love with protein powders? Have you tried cooked grains like quinoa or oats?
