Pink Power Detox Smoothie (from Oh She Glows)

I have made this smoothie many times and I always enjoy it!  This is a recipe from Angela Liddon of Oh She Glows.  If you have never heard of her, you MUST check out her website full of amazingness HERE.

I have never tried a recipe from my fellow Oakvillian’s (made up word?) cookbook or website that I do not absolutely love!!!  This smoothie is no exception.  Here is the original recipe for Pink Power Detox Smoothie.

I used a Golden Beet this time so the colour isn’t as much fun as the regular bright pink, but still tasty 🙂

Ingredients I used:

  • 1 cup coconut water 
  • 1/2 medium avocado, pitted
  • 2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup strawberries (frozen preferred), hulled if necessary
  • 1 small/medium beet (I used golden this time, peeled and chopped-ends removed)
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons or so)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 large ice cubes

You can also add an apple for sweetness if you like, as Angela suggests.

Blend all ingredients in high speed blender until smooth.  Serve and enjoy!  I did!

I knew Button liked coffee, but apparently she likes smoothies now as well.

Just like her Momma 🙂 haha

No, I didn’t drink this one afterwards…luckily the other half was still in my Vitamix!

Thanks a lot Button! lol
