Use Garden Greens in Green Smoothies

Why waste those precious greens, when you can make green smoothies and your body can benefit from them. You can blend up delicious beet, kale, broccoli greens 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 compost pile. When I do that... our deer and rabbits love the compost pile during late summer/fall. It is fun to see the wildlife.

During 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 green smoothies are a little more mild than the radish tops smoothies, but they still have a strong flavor depending on how mature the leaves are. 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.
