Green Smoothie Gone Red

SGS_challenge_mainimage

My first smoothie drink, Peach Coconut Dream lasted two days, and today I made up a new batch. I’m calling it the Gone With The Red. The beetroot turned the smoothie red, but it was still very delicious.

Because today’s challenge is to add protein to the smoothie if you’re using it as a meal substitute, I added a handful of almonds on the side. It’s a hot summer day here, so it was perfect to sit outside with my chilled smoothie and almonds:)

On a separate note, I’m using my Bubba Gump glass I got from the New York Times Square restaurant when I was there last year. So many fond memories.
