Since we started running our breakfast challenge every October and January, I’ve tested and discovered so many yummy healthy protein smoothie recipes.

While they’re all super tasty, some of them are huge hits during the challenge, which makes me think they should go on the blog so I can share them with everyone.  In fact, that’s how my Kiwi and Kale Smoothie was shared on the blog and why, today, I’m sharing this Pink Power Protein Beet Smoothie.

Fact: Lots of fun protein smoothies in your recipe box is always a good thing.

Another Fact: I bought ALL the ingredients for the 7 recipes in this challenge for less than $50 at Whole Foods Market 365.  If you’re near one, I highly recommend checking it out for great produce and healthy ingredients at lower prices!

The ingredients required to make a pink power protein beet smoothie, including a raw beet, almond milk, frozen strawberries, banana, flaxseed meal, and raw honey. Blender with frozen strawberries, flaxseed meal, almond milk, beet, and raw honey, about to be blended and made into pink power protein beet smoothie.

Plus I just like the name.

There’s something about making a “power” smoothie that gets me all hyped for the day.

Why You Should Make This Pink Smoothie Recipe

Beets are an amazing addition to power protein smoothies because they’re PACKED full of…

  • fiber
  • protein
  • antioxidants
  • vitamin C
  • potassium
  • vitamin K
  • folic acid
  • omega-3 essential fatty acids
  • manganese
  • B vitamin folate (which helps reduce the risk of birth defects so I’m all about that right now)

See? Power and Goodness.  Thanks, pink power protein smoothie goodness.

And it’s so pretty!

There’s nothing like drinking in this vibrant, sweet, filling, and satisfying protein smoothie in the morning to get your day started off right.

If that’s your thing, I think this smoothie will definitely be your new best friend.

Substitutes For Protein Powder

While you don’t have to add protein powder if you don’t want to (without it, the smoothie has about 7 grams of protein), adding it will up the protein to make this a very well-balanced meal.  I like adding vanilla protein powder when I make it, but unflavored or strawberry flavor would work as well.

BUT some people don’t really like protein powder or find it doesn’t agree with them.  So here are some great healthy substitutes for protein powder that will also work in this pink protein beet smoothie recipe:

  • peanut butter
  • almond butter
  • cashew butter
  • whole fat plain greek yogurt
  • whole fat cottage cheese
  • flaxseed meal
  • chia seeds
  • hemp seeds
  • egg whites (pasteurized)

Hopefully, there’s an idea here that sounds good to you.  You can pick any of these up at Whole Foods Market 365!

Raw or Cooked Beets For Beet Berry Smoothie?

This Pink Power Protein Beet Smoothie recipe uses a raw beet, not a cooked one.  Not cooking beets is way easier than cooking beets – you’re skipping all those steps which makes this breakfast protein smoothie an even easier breakfast choice.  There isn’t any major difference, nutrients-wise, of eating raw beets versus cooked beets.  That being said, you can use either a raw or cooked beet and you’ll be fine.

  1. Interested to see how exactly you got the nutrition info for this! Even taking out the honey and using a 1 carb/cup milk, every calculation I get is 50+ carbs. Even a small banana is over 25 carbs and 15+ g sugar. I would love to know how to make this recipe with the reported 37 carbs, as it sounds delicious and I love beets! Just not seeing how to get there with the banana, cup of strawberries, and honey. Thanks for your help!

  2. Hi, I would like to make ahead everything and just chuck it in the blender in the morning, how can I do that?
    Do I freeze every thing together and just add milk?

  3. 5 stars
    Looks so great! Thank you for sharing it with us, I really appreciate it. Can’t wail untill i come home i try to prepare it! 😀
