A Birchbox Pink Smoothie: Well-Balanced

You wouldn’t know it from how much we talk about cookies, but Birchbox staffers are a pretty healthy bunch. We love our veggies and mind-clearing workouts, and are always up to try the latest fitness class or nutrition bar. Which is why we have new regular column: Well-Balanced. Check back weekly for our latest wellness obsession.

You may know our contributor Natalie Alcala as an LA-based blogger with access to fashion and beauty insiders. But what you probably don’t know is that the pint-size whiz is also a total wellness geek. She knows as much about chia seeds and kale as she does about runway trends and celebrity shenanigans. Recently, she emailed me out of the blue to say, “You need to try my beet n’ berry smoothie! It’s Birchbox pink!" Since I’ve never met a smoothie I didn’t like, I promptly went out to buy the ingredients and whipped it up for Sunday breakfast. The verdict? An antioxidant-rich fuchsia smoothie with a sweet, earthy taste. Click through for the recipe!

Beet-n-Berry Smoothie
Yields: 1 serving
1 medium beet, raw, steamed or roasted*
1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup fresh orange, sectioned
1 cup of almond milk
-If using raw beet, carefully peel the beet and cut into squares. 
-Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. Enjoy!
 
*Use steamed or roasted If you don’t have a high-speed blender
If you’re not a huge beet fan, try adding a bit of frozen banana. It will make the texture creamier and soften the beet flavor. I also added a tablespoon of ground chia seeds to make it more filling. 
For something a bit, well, more chocolate-y, try goop’s Chocolate Love Smoothie.
