How to Use Garden Greens in Green Smoothies

Why waste those precious garden greens, when you can make green smoothies. You can blend up a delicious beet tops recipe that the whole family will enjoy.

Did you know that there are more nutrients in beet tops than the actual root? Most people cut the beet tops off and leave them in the garden for fertilizing the next crop. Or we cook a lot of those nutrients out of the tops and smother them with butter. Instead of cooking your beet tops, try making a tasty green smoothie.


This harvest season, a friend of mine gave me a whole bag of beet roots and around 4 large bags of beet tops. I went home and washed the beet tops really well and placed 1 packed cup size servings in freezer bags for my future green smoothie recipes.

Beet top smoothies are a little more mild than the radish tops smoothies. I suggest using 1 packed cup beet greens for a 4 cup smoothie. If you like a super raw food green smoothie, you can add more greens, like spinach or lettuce.
