Introducing Vegan Glow + Pink Power Detox Smoothie Recipe

After years of drooling from the sidelines, this marks my first year participating in Vegan Mofo which challenges participating bloggers to write about vegan food for the entire month. [For more details, see the Vegan Mofo website.] Colour me excited.

I considered all kinds of random themes for September, but in the end I decided on something I know I could put my heart and soul into. Even though my sweet tooth voted for “DESSERT MONTH!!”, my head decided otherwise. Vegan Glow will showcase wholesome, vegetable-heavy vegan recipes that will leave you feeling energized. The recipes will be similar to my own style of recipe creation, but they’ll be kicked up a few notches. Given that it’s back to school and work season, I’m aiming to share as many quick and easy recipes as I can.

In other news, I now have a “thing” for making rather pathetic “glowing” suns in Photoshop. Oh dear.

What can you expect to see on Oh She Glows this month? Well, I have several recipes lined up from raw recipes and juices/smoothies to healthy desserts and energizing fall-inspired soups. And who knows what else. I sure don’t.

I hope you are hungry because it’s going to be a great month!

Up first, I’m sharing this power smoothie that I’m obsessed with lately. Power smoothies are what I call the mega dose, nutrient-packed smoothies of the bunch. You know that’s how I roll. This one surely is up there on the list of health drinks. I’ve been drinking it for breakfast several mornings a week and it makes me feel incredible. Best of all, it makes just shy of 4 cups…aka one big ass smoothie. I like big smoothies and I do not lie. All you other bloggers can’t deny…

Seeing as we’re just coming off a holiday weekend, I figured this was a good “back on track” smoothie to kick off the new month. Let’s do it up.

Here are a few reasons to chug this down, from a nutritional standpoint. I’ll talk more about the flavour in the headnote below.

Beet – cleanses the liver, purifies the blood, anti-inflammatory, source of iron

Avocado – helps lower blood pressure, lubricates joints, anti-inflammatory, loads of healthy fats, high in fibre

Strawberries – high in antioxidants, rich source of vitamin C, benefits digestion

Celery – acts as mild diuretic, promotes feeling of fullness, rich in B vitamins and fibre

Lemon – antibacterial properties, aids digestion, high in Vitamin C, detoxifies and alkalizes, mild diuretic

Virgin Coconut oil – fights viruses, fungi, and bacteria, metabolism booster, healthy MCT fats, increases good HDL cholesterol

Apple (optional) – helps balance blood sugar levels, helps lower cholesterol, aids digestion

This recipe directly below is an updated version (April 23, 2016). The original recipe follows.

Pink Power Detox Smoothie

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, no bake/raw, nut-free, oil-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free

By

Print

Beet, strawberries, avocado, and lemon unite to create one kick-butt, surprisingly delicious, bright pink smoothie! This smoothie is lightly sweet and creamy, while packing in the detoxifying power of beet and lemon. If you're not a beet fan you might be wondering if you can taste the beet. The answer is yes you can definitely taste the beet! However, I think the beet flavour is balanced quite nicely in this smoothie (keep in mind this is coming from a beet fan).

Yield
3 1/2 cups (2 servings)
Prep Time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Total Time

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (250 mL) water*
  • 1 cup (150 g) frozen strawberries
  • 1/3 cup (45 g) chopped fresh beet**
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) avocado
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large sweet apple (200 grams), roughly chopped
  • 5 to 6 large ice cubes
  • Liquid sweetener, to taste (optional)

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Taste and add liquid sweetener, if desired.

Tips:

  • * For a sweeter smoothie, try using coconut water instead of water.
  • ** You might want to steam the beet until tender before blending if you don't have a Vitamix or other capable blender.  I just blend it raw because I know my Vitamix can handle it.

Pink Power Detox Smoothie

Beet, strawberries, avocado, and lemon unite to create one kick-butt, surprisingly delicious, bright pink smoothie! This creamy & thick smoothie is not overly sweet - it's more on the tart side thanks to juice from a whole lemon. If you prefer sweeter smoothies, I suggest adding an apple to the mix or your preferred liquid sweetener. I also suggest using a small to medium sized beet, anything larger and the earthy beet might overpower the other flavours. Consider gently steaming the beet until tender before blending if you don't have a Vitamix or other capable blender.  I just use the beet raw because I know my blender can handle it. Best to be safe than sorry if you are unsure!

Yield
4 cups
Prep Time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Total Time

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water or coconut water
  • 1/2 medium avocado, pitted
  • 2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup strawberries (frozen preferred), hulled if necessary
  • 1 small/medium beet, ends trimmed and roughly chopped*
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons or so)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 large ice cubes
  • 1 apple ( if sweeter smoothie is desired - optional), cored and roughly chopped

Directions:

  1. Steam beet if necessary before starting. See my tips in the headnote.
  2. Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Adjust sweetness if desired, adding an apple or liquid sweetener to taste if needed.

Tips:

1) If you are not a beet fan, try adding a handful of leafy greens instead of the beet and include the optional apple. 2) Smoothies shown in pictures does not include apple. Yield may be slightly higher with an apple added in.

This smoothie looks so pretty! I juice beets all the time but I have never added raw beets to a smoothie, what a great idea. I usually add protein powder to my smoothies so they keep my full for 3-4 hours, do you think it would taste OK in this smoothie?

Reply

2 Angela (Oh She Glows) September 3, 2013

I think it would depend on the flavour of the protein powder – if you like the taste then go for it! Maybe add a bit at a time to taste?

Reply

3 Jesse @OutToLunchC September 3, 2013

Awesome, I was thinking of using a plain hemp protein because vanilla might be too overpowering. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Is it ok to make smoothies the night before to drink in the morning? I was just wondering becuase my roommate usually sleeps in late (he works nights) and using a blender in the morning is really noisy. I’ve heard some people say that the enzymes in fruits degrade with time, and that nutrients will be lost if you leave it in the fridge for 8 or 10 hours.

Reply

5 Angela (Oh She Glows) April 7, 2014

yes you can certainly make it the night before! Just give it a good stir in the AM. I’m not sure about nutrient loss though, but I think it’s still much better than not drinking one at all.

Not true, you’re losing all the good stuff. Just use the blender for a few minutes in the morning – he can get over it!

I love beets, so much. I know many people don’t, but I think they’re nature’s candy, right along with medjool dates. And with the coconut oil and creamy avocado, I bet this is dynamite! I just got done doing a 3-day juice cleanse and so especially enjoyed your little one liners about what each item is good for or helpful for.

And Vegan Mofo. Last time I did it, it was either 2009 or 2010. Wow, memories :) Good for you!

Hi Angela,
Is it best to cook the beat first or to put it in raw? Sorry i couldn’t find the head note you mentioned..

Reply

14 Angela (Oh She Glows) September 3, 2013

I use a vitamix and it blends the raw beet just fine (of course I chop it up small to help it along), but if you aren’t as confident in your blender you might want to cook it or steam it before making the smoothie. I suggest doing so the night before so it doesn’t make your smoothie hot! hah. Hope you enjoy

15 Jessica @ conveganence September 3, 2013

Talk about “Pretty in Pink”!!! What gorgeous photos. Using the beet was brilliant. I’ll have to steam it – my wimpy blender would give up the ghost if I attempted to grind a raw beet in it. I have asked Santa for a Vitamix. I have high hopes I’ll get one under my tree this year.

I dont have a Vitamix (yet) and I’d love to make this as a breakfast smoothie before going to work so steaming the beet is out of the question. That being the case, could I juice the beet and celery with a high-powered juicer and then add it to the rest of the ingredients in the blender?

Reply

51 Angela (Oh She Glows) September 3, 2013

I can’t see why not! That sounds like a great idea to me. Or you can steam/cook the beet the day prior or even cook a batch of beets so you have some on hand. enjoy :)

Avocados freeze beautifully! Immediately dice the remaining half, place in a freezer bag and toss into the freezer. Next time you need avocado for your smoothie, it’s ready to go right into the blender.

I love the color (I like beets in smoothies anyway). However that recipe makes a pretty salty smoothie tasting a bit like vegetable soup.I guess it’s the celery. Maybe I try adding the apple next time. Thanks for the recipe!

Hi Angela,

I have a question for your regarding coconut oil. I never use it and don’t really care for the taste of coconut. Does the oil have a strong coconut flavor? I see that you use this in a lot of dessert recipes also. I wanted to check with you before I made the investment. Thanks! Love your recipes!

What do you do with your leftover avocado? I aways wonder about that in recipes that do not use the whole thing. In my experience they brown so quickly and don’t store well. I love them…..so I usually just add the whole thing to whatever I’m making.

I know many people peel beets before using, but I am going to scrub mine like crazy and try them in the smoothie unpeeled and hope they don’t taste too “earthy” :) Now, what to do with the beet greens I cut off….maybe a stir fry!
I am a longtime lurker and big fan of your site. Thank you for everything you do to put out wonderful healthy recipes. I have been sneaking them into our meals gradually (I married an unapologetic carnivore), and my husband has enjoyed every one of your recipes. He now asks, “Is this a “Glow” recipe?” ;) Your Endurance crackers, GF almond/buckwheat pizza crust, butternut squash mac n’ cheese, no bake date squares and no bake macaroons have helped win him over and helped make him more open minded about vegan food. This has helped catapult him into adopting the vegan Engine 2 diet (probably because the spokes-person is a big muscled manly-man firefighter, but hey, whatever it takes to make him healthy is fine with me!).

I tried your pudding made with chia, almond milk, cocoa pudding and a little water this morning. I blended it up for a few seconds, let it sit in the fridge while I showered….and it changed my life! What a great breakfast, snack or dessert-it filled me up, satisfied my sweet tooth (I added a couple drops of vanilla stevia liquid) and made me feel like I was doing something good for my body all at once.

I look forward to trying more of your recipes, and I was happy to vote for your website! Good luck!

Great smoothie. Me and husband had it this morning. I was trying to think of something to do with my beets. I didnt have the celery so i threw in a couple of carrots for good measure. Good luck with the 20 posts this month. I cant wait, i love all your recipes.

I’m allergic to avocado. Can you suggest a substitute?

Reply

103 Angela (Oh She Glows) September 6, 2013

Hey Jessica, the avocado makes it thick and creamy (similar to what a frozen banana does to a smoothie) – maybe try some coconut cream or nut butter? im not sure how a banana would impact the flavour, but you could try that too.

….i wanted to try this smoothie so bad, but i didn’t have any beets or lemons, so i swapped the beet for half of an apple and lime juice in place of the lemon…..it was creamy and tasty!!! thanks for the inspiration!!!!, BTW, LOVE the use of the mason jar :)

Do you strain it after mixing? I love beets but have found that when I try to make smoothies with them it always turns out really frothy and I end up only drinking part of it. I also use a Vitamix, do you have any suggestions?
Thanks :)

Oh man, I knew I should have got beets from the market yesterday… this looks so good! I don’t even like beets, but I think I would enjoy them in this (I try to eat them in things as I know they are healthy). And so pretty too!

110 Colleen September 8, 2013

Just bought some steamed beets at Trader Joe’s since our blender, while great, falls short of a Vitamix in power. Can’t wait to have these for breakfast this week!

A question, though. I normally toss a few tablespoons of organic chia seeds into my smoothies for a nice fiber/omega-3 boost. Can you do that with this, or will the chia gel make them too thick?

Reply

Hey Colleen, This smoothie is quite thick thanks to the avocado, but you could always try it out – maybe start with just 1 tbsp though. Hope you enjoy!

I used a couple wedges of lime instead of lemon.
Delicious and beautiful recipe.

What do you think about adding the avocado pit too, into the vitamix? Aside from a slightly bitter taste, which can be counteracted by apples or similar, the pit is meant to be high in fibre and the healthiest part?

Thank you for inspiring me to use beets in my morning shake. I didn’t have everything your recipe called for so I made my own.
1/2 Apple
1/2 Beet
1/2 Frozen banana
1/2 c Greek vanilla yogurt
1 c orange juice
1 Tsp organic coconut oil
Small handful of spinach.

Apples give my smoothies a texture I’m personally not crazy about but I add them anyways. The goal is really to pack a bunch of nutrition into one drink.
Besides the appley texture, this was great!
I am surprised at how little flavor a beet has. This is a good thing. I can add it to any smoothie and not have to choke it down. :)

Sorry i didn’t put this all I’m one comment. ..

Is there a significant difference between virgin coconut oil and organic refined coconut oil?

164 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 12, 2013

Hi Toni, I didn’t bother peeling my beet but you can if you want. No, I didn’t use the avocado skin – just the flesh :) Hulling strawberries simply means removing the green leafy stem off fresh strawberries (yes frozen ones come hulled, like you said). Hope this helps! Enjoy :)

I’ve made this recipe a few times. I’ve never used coconut oil or water in it since it has never been on hand. My SIL tried the coconut oil and said it didn’t blend well into the drink. This was the first recipe I tried from this site and I’ll admit I was a bit scared…but, everyone in my family enjoyed it. My kids happily drank all theirs and had bright red little moustaches.

I made this smoothie this morning and I was pleasantly surprised! I added a pink lady apple and didn’t add any ice…it was the perfect consistency and it was so large it took over an hour for me to finish it! Perfect fuel before my run! Thank you for sharing this :)

I just bought a VitaMix. I need to have protein with my meals. What are ways to add protein to a green smoothie?

Hi Katie, my favourite way to give green smoothies a protein boost is with the addition of hemp hearts (also called hulled hemp seeds). They’re a complete protein source, with just three tablespoons containing a whole 10 grams of protein! If you’d like a bit of recipe inspiration, you might be interested in checking out my Green Warrior Protein Smoothie on the blog. Chia seeds are another great option – I love to add a tablespoon to my smoothies. Hope this helps!
