Aren’t smoothies the best?! Not only are they creamy, cooling, and quick, but they can secretly contain tons of veggies and antioxidants. Inspired by Juiceland’s Rehydrator, this refreshing smoothie packs in three different veggies (but no one will know by tasting it!).

It’s sweet, tart, SO vibrant, plant-based, and bursting with freshness (hello mango, raspberry, beet, and carrot). Just 8 ingredients, 5 minutes, and 1 blender required. Let’s do this!

Water, spinach, lime, raspberries, beets, mango, ginger, carrot, and mint

How to Make This Mango Beet Smoothie

This vibrant veggie and fruit-packed smoothie begins with frozen mango for a sweet, creamy base, plus frozen raspberries for tartness, antioxidants, and fiber.

Next, we add chopped beet, which contributes the vibrant red color, plus folate, antioxidants, and heart health benefits. Whenever there are extra beets around, we chop, steam, and freeze them for smoothies. If you’re into that, too, add our Red Velvet Cake Smoothie to your to-try list!

The remaining ingredients include carrots and spinach to complete the trio of hidden veggies, lime juice for brightness, and ginger and mint for freshness. Then add water (or coconut water) and blend it up until it’s smooth and creamy!

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients (starting with the lesser amount of water) to a high-speed blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed. If it has trouble blending, add more water.

Notes

*To cook beets: Cube first then steam in a steamer basket, covered, until tender (about 10-15 minutes). Then freeze before using in smoothies.
*Prep time assumes using already steamed and frozen beets.
*Inspired by the rehydrator smoothie at Juiceland.

    I am a sucker for purple foods, I love beets, and I love this smoothie! It is so very refreshing, and I love all of the veggies in it! I used about 1/4 tsp. of ground ginger because it’s what I had, and that worked out fine. I can’t wait to make this again!

  2. Nancy says

    This is really refreshing and tasty. I used blueberries instead of raspberries because that’s what I had. Lots of ginger and mint! Happy to have so many “plant points” in one big smoothie. I don’t usually think of myself as a beet person, but I am incorporating more for all the health benefits. This doesn’t taste like beets!

      Yay! Thanks so much for the great review and for sharing your modifications, Nancy!

  3. Alice says

    I noticed that the red velvet cake smoothie calls for raw beets and this recipe for steamed (and frozen) ones. Can you speak to the difference? Thank you for your great recipes!

      • Alice says

        Right on. Wondering if you recommend the stronger flavor for the red velvet cake smoothie. Or just a preference thing?

        • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

          Hi Alice, With the red velvet cake smoothie, we say “raw OR roasted/steamed until tender, then frozen*” – we prefer the beet cooked but there are enough other flavors going on and some people prefer the ease of raw. Hope that helps!

  4. JR says

    I will try this again with half the ginger to start. I usually like ginger in my smoothies, the 2in piece was too overpowering in this case. Now that I think about it, maybe my ginger piece was too thick, it was not skinny like a finger.

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi JR, sorry to hear it was too gingery. We did use ginger that wasn’t very thick, so that makes sense if yours was thick. We’ll adjust the recipe to account for different sizes of ginger. Let us know if you give it another try!

    You guys – YUM! I feel like I’ve made every smoothie combination under the planet because I have one every day but this one’s really unique. I love the addition of mint. Leave it to minimalist baker to always come up with the most creative and delicious ideas in food. Cannot wait to try this.

    ** I feel bad leaving a comment before I’ve made the recipe because your categories are either 1) I made this or 2) I have a question.
    Anyways, I always eventually end up making the things I bookmark from your site and have never been disappointed!

      Hi Natalia, we haven’t tested it with beet powder, but possibly! If you want to try it, we’d suggest starting with maybe 1/2 tsp? It can have a strong flavor. For texture, you may need to add more mango to compensate. Hope that helps!
