Author Planted and Picked


  • Blender


  • cups plant based milk (we used Eden organic soy milk)
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • ½ fresh or frozen banana
  • ¼ cup chopped red pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh or frozen beets
  • 2 tbsp hazelnuts
  • 1 tbsp pureed coconut (such as coconut manna) or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted (depending on level of sweetness desired)
  • 1 tbsp goji berries (optional)
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)


  • Add all ingredients to a high speed blender.
  • Blend until smooth. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides or use a tamper, depending on what blender you are using. If you are using more frozen fruit and vegetables, you may have to add a little more liquid.
  • If you are using fresh fruit and/or vegetables, you can add a few ice cubes to desired consistency.
  • If you have goji berries on hand, they will add some additional antioxidants and vitamin C and contribute to the pretty pink colour.
  • If you have Maca on hand, it has been shown to be beneficial for energy, endurance and stamina. We try to include this more often when we are training for an endurance event.
  • Pour into large cup and enjoy!
