Red Velvet Smoothie

This easy four ingredient recipe not only refuels you after a workout, but will make your taste buds dance! I love red velvet cake, so a red velvet smoothie was totally on my to-do list!SO delicious! I’m in the process of making another version of it to add more nutrients and minimize the use of sweetened almond milk.

BUT since we don’t drink or eat many sweetened items (we try and stick with natural sugars from fruit, raw honey, and maple syrup), we don’t mind indulging. So, indulge away!

If you like this red velvet smoothie, check out our birthday cake smoothie or carrot cake smoothie!

  • 1 Cup of Chocolate Almond Milk
  • 4 Tbs of Grated Beets (I skin my beets & then pulse them in a food processor until they are chopped up into tiny pieces.)
  • 1/2 Banana
  • Grass-fed Vanilla Whey Protein (Follow instructions on how many scoops should be used on your particular protein)


  1. Put all ingredients in blender & blend until smooth. Enjoy!
