½ cup root vegetable blend (beets, butternut squash, carrots, parsnips [frozen])
½ tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp. instant coffee (regular or decaffeinated)

Add remaining ingredients.
Blend on high speed until smooth — about 1 minute.
- Buying and using frozen root vegetables adds convenience, helps reduce waste, eliminates the need to add ice to your smoothie, and helps make a smooth consistency.
- Pre-measure vegetables, peel and cut banana pieces, put them in small storage bags or other containers ahead of time, and store in the freezer so when you’re ready to make a smoothie the ingredients are ready to go.
- If you use a non-dairy milk alternative, choose a product fortified with calcium and vitamins A, D, and B12.
*Customize your smoothie with your choice of milk. If you must avoid dairy or soy, try one of our suggested alternatives.
