Raspberry Beet Mint Protein Smoothie

Raspberry Beet Mint Protein Smoothie

I love a dash of mint in my smoothies. It really brightens the flavor and matches well with just about every smoothie flavor. So, when I saw this recipe, I knew I’d love it before I even tried it… and I wasn’t disappointed.

I received a review copy of 175 Best Superfood Blender Recipes Using Your Nutribulletwhich includes several yummy recipes that I’ve already tried, and many more that I look forward to trying. You don’t have to have a Nutribullet to make these recipes – any quality blender or food processor will do.

I have to admit… my blender is on its last legs. I’ve been meaning to purchase a new one for the past year, but have been putting it off. I just can’t decided which one I want. My old blender does get the job done, so I keep eeking out a few more blends. One day, I’m sure it will die mid-blend and I’ll be forced to make a decision. But not today!
