Beet & Blueberry Smoothie is the perfect smoothie recipe for the fall and winter.
According to Ayurveda beets are recommended during Vata season, which runs from October through March, as the bright and vibrant colors can help balance out the dryness and coldness of the season.
In addition, beets have many uses in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda including cleansing the liver, improving blood circulation and calming the mind and spirit.
They are also used as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments and have been traditionally used to treat conditions such as:
- Heart weakness
- Liver toxicity
- Irritability & restlessness
- Irregular periods
- Decreased libido
Smoothies are an easy way to add more beets to your diet–and to make things even easier, look for frozen or vacuum packed beets in your grocery store (find organic vacuum packed beets in the refrigerated section at Costco). They’ll save you lots of time since they’re already cleaned and cooked… just throw them into the blender.

Beets (fresh or frozen, cooked)

DID YOU KNOW? Maca is a root vegetable in the Radish family that is known for its hormone balancing effects.
Maca is an endocrine adaptogen, meaning that it does not contain any hormones, but rather it contains the nutrients necessary to support normal hormone production.
This root has been studied to help enhance fertility, normalize symptoms of premenstrual/menstrual symptoms, as well as the symptoms of menopause including hot flashes, night sweats, cramps, fatigue and lethargy.
You can easily add maca to your diet by blending it into a smoothie. Try this Maca Matcha Smoothie. Look for gelatinized maca for easier digestion and absorption.
Maca Matcha Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk
1 frozen banana
