Pomegranate, Beet & Lime Smoothie

Total Time 5 minutes
Author Noelle Parton

Ingredients

  • Collard greens, or other greens
  • Celery, perfect time to use the inner stalks and leaves
  • Beet
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Banana, fresh or frozen
  • Fresh parsley, as desired
  • Lime, juiced or simply peeled

Instructions

  1. Add as much greens and celery as desired. I use a ratio of about 1:1 for vegetables to fruit, which ends up being about one large collard leaf and all of the inner stalks and leaves of a celery head.
  2. Roughly chop or slice a beet, and add as much as desired. I use about 1/2 of a large beetroot.
  3. Add about 1/2 the amount of veggies used in pomegranate seeds, or more if desired.
  4. Depending on how sweet you want the smoothie, add 1/2 to 1 large banana. I like my smoothies on the tart side, so I use about 1/2, but use as much as you'd like. The more you use, the thicker and creamier it will be, especially if frozen. I recommend using at least 1/2 of a banana for 1 to 2 smoothies for that creaminess; use less, and the smoothie will separate easily and be watery.
  5. Lastly, add a few sprigs of fresh parsley and about 1/4 of a lime, or more if a super tart smoothie is desired. I simply peel the lime and throw it in rather than just juicing it.
  6. Fill up your blender with water until it reaches about 1/4 of the way up your ingredients. Blend on high until smooth and creamy! Enjoy!
