This Red Velvet Beet Shake is ideal for a morning smoothie when your body needs an extra oomph from antioxidants. Yes, there are beets in here and they’re raw, not cooked, which makes this shake super easy to make first thing in the morning (or at night for a naturally sweet and healthy dessert)!

I hope you’re keeping cool wherever you are. As the temps start to rise this summer, you’re going to want to have a few cooling recipes up your sleeve that you can rely on when you’re about to melt.

Please don’t melt.

Instead, you can enjoy this chilling shake that will hit the spot when you’re living in front of your air conditioner for some relief from the heat. All you’ve gotta do is toss everything into a blender and puree away!

Yes, that’s it.

This recipe is from my friend, Ali Maffucci and her new book, Inspiralized & More, which just hit stores last month. Ali’s recipes (see her site, Inspiralized) are easy, they’re fresh and they’re delicious. She’s all about inspiralizing veggies and I’m sure you’ve seen her previous cookbooks, which were all spiralized. This book, however, has more than just inspiralized veggies in it. It’s chock full of dishes for all ages that aren’t spiralized, so you don’t need a spiralizer to buy this book (see below for the cover)!

Now, go make this shake and let us know how you like it.

Enjoy!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
