Chef notes

The gorgeous, bright pink hue of this vegan smoothie will help you get energized at any time of day. And the magnesium it contains will help keep your ticker healthy. Plus, the hemp seeds in the recipe have the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids for reducing heart disease risk.


  • 1 beet, peeled and chopped
  • 1 navel orange, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 handful ice
  • 1 orange slice (optional)


In a blender, combine beet, orange, hemp seeds, ginger and ice and blend until the mixture is smooth. Serve in a tall glass. Garnish with a slice of orange, if desired.
