Berry-Beet Kvass Green Smoothie Recipe
I love beet kvass, but getting my family to drink it is an ordeal. Beet Kvass is known for it's medicinal qualities and also provides beneficial bacteria to the gut. This green smoothie is a great way to get it into them along with some greens. This smoothie is more like a juice as far as consistency and is completely dairy-free. I serve this type of smoothie alongside a nourishing egg breakfast. It is not filling enough to use as a meal replacement.
3 1/2 cups of filtered water
2-3 cups organic baby spinach
1 cup mixed frozen organic berries (I used combination of blueberries, strawberries and raspberries)
1/2 cup beet kvass (try this Orange Ginger Kvass!)
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 heaping tablespoon of raw honey (optional)
Rinse spinach well.
Blend water, kvass and spinach until thoroughly combined. This creates a smoother smoothie by blending the greens first.
Add the frozen berries, cinnamon and optional honey. Blend until smooth and frothy. Skim off the foam or allow to settle before drinking. I kinda like it, personally. :)
