This 5-min beet banana smoothie is prepared using raw beet, banana, chia seeds & skim milk. Try this vibrant pink smoothie to fall in love with raw beets.
Making smoothies are a super quick option for any morning. I love making smoothies as they are so versatile to prepare. Combine what you love the most with what you like the least. In this way, you will get the nutrition, and you won’t feel you are eating things that you hate to eat.
For example, this beet smoothie! We both don’t like a beet. It is one of the many things that I don’t like to eat (:P), and for Tushar, it is rare that he doesn’t like a beet.
What I love about this smoothie is that it is…
- super quick to prepare
- and its vibrant pink color
Beet Banana Smoothie
This smoothie is a blend of raw beet, ripe banana, chia seeds, and skim milk. You can substitute dairy with your choice of milk for vegan options. All these ingredients are healthy and will help you boost your energy in the morning. Just blend all the ingredients in a powerful blender until smooth in consistency and enjoy.

I absolutely despise beetroots lol my 13 month old son eats them but he always makes funny faces because he isn’t a fan of the taste. I made this smoothie (I left out the honey) and when I tell you that it tasted divine… like omg I LOVE it !! Finally I can eat beetroots with a smile on my face (my son too xD)
I just tried this and was pleasantly surprised as to how much I liked it! I didn’t have chia seeds so I used ground flax seeds instead
This smoothie recipe is perfect!! I loved it. I used frozen banana and added 3 ice cubes. I believe the trick is to use a high speed blender so there are no pieces of the beets. I used my ninja blender and it was amazing, very smooth. Thanks for the recipe!

Hi Mayrim, I’m glad you liked this smoothie. You are right. A powerful blender does make a difference in the texture of the smoothie.
Did you use fresh need or can need? If fresh did you cook it ? I k ow some people juice it raw???

I used fresh raw beet in this smoothie. I never felt its raw taste in the smoothie. Hope this helps.
This sounds like the perfect way to mix up my breakfast routine. Never thought of putting beets in a smoothie, but it makes for such a beautiful looking drink!!

Your recipe is featured on Full Plate Thursday this week. Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy your new Red Plate!
I really love beets. We love to roast them or pickle them. And we plant tons of them in our garden every year. We have them on salads and we really just love beets. But I have never taken a raw beet and eaten it, or thrown one in a blender for a smoothie. I am definitely going to try this, I love bananas too. It sounds like it might be right up my alley and it’s pretty gorgeous. I will pin this recipe and go pick up some Beets!
