Whole30 Smoothie: Carrot Beet Berry

Whole 30 Green Smoothie | Carrot Beet Berry

This Whole30 smoothie relies on vitamin-rich kale, naturally sweet root veggies, low-sugar strawberries, a little banana, and a spoonful of coconut oil. So let’s get blending!

It seems like just about everyone I know is doing or has picked up the Whole30 Cookbook over the last few years. I love the premise of the Whole30 way of eating – whole, unprocessed foods, and NO sugar. It’s great advice for anyone, Whole30 or not. I just prefer to skip the meat and use a plant-based protein in most of my meals. If you’re interested in a plant-based meal plan, check out our Thrive Reset.

I’ve been following Melissa Hartwig on Instagram for the past 2 years and love her passion for being outdoors, or #church, as she says. She understands that what you put in your body will affect what you can do. She chooses to fuel her body with foods that make her feel her best… just like me. And that can look a little different for all of us! (and that’s okay)

My Tasty Whole30 Smoothie

While I don’t personally follow Whole30 myself (I’m on the plant-power train, baby!), I have plenty of friends who have tried it and asked me for a smoothie recipe to help them along the way. Smoothies are a great way to pack more plants into your day, which is why we wanted to create a special recipe full of leafy green and veggies goodness that is lower in sugar, high in fiber, and includes a healthy fat, in this case, coconut oil. And this recipe will keep you going strong!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup baby kale
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 medium carrot (peeled and sliced)

    Finding plant-based whole30 smoothie recipes can be tricky. This one covers it all and is loaded with nutrients. Even if it’s not my favorite flavors, the nutrients make it a major winner for me.

  3. Michele says:

    HI everyone,
    I used 1 avocado instead of the coconut oil, and a little stevia…. was delicious! oh and my beets were roasted.

    in response to keniesha, with the mild headache after drinking a smoothie: that happens to me when i go through a period of not drinking my smoothies regularly (like sometimes during holidays) and it will happen for a few days, and then generally goes away. it’s often our body releasing toxins! and i have eaten all of the ingredients inside the smoothies individually many, many times before so i am certain i am not allergic to them. 🙂

  5. Jen Hansard says:

    Beets are tricky ingredient, but this recipe makes them palatable and beneficial to the body. It’s a winner!!!

  6. Lissi Sigillo says:

    I love green juices and smoothies and don’t need things to be very sweet but I found this to be a most unappealing taste. Wouldn’t make it again.

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Lissi,

      Thank you so much for your feedback. Any suggestions on how we can improve this recipe?

  7. Beth Anne Lewis says:

    This may seem like a silly question, but should the beets be cooked before putting them in the smoothie? Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Beth,

      Not a silly question at all! It’s really up to you. You can use raw, steamed, or roasted beets in your green smoothies. I love using raw for convenience, but if you have a lower power blender, cooking your beets beforehand helps make your smoothie extra creamy + smooth.

      Hope this helps!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Gideon,

    sometimes when drink a cup of smoothies i have a mild headache..why do i have a mild headache??

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Keniesha,

      It sounds like you may have a food sensitivity. It’s always best to check with your doctor if you’re not feeling 100% after your green smoothie.
