This chocolate beet smoothie may be a stunning pink but it tastes like a frothy rich chocolate milk shake - such an interesting experience to be sipping on bright pink while your mouth registers deep chocolate. Plus the nutritional power in this smoothie soars, with antioxidants from both beets and chocolate, and tons of fiber so you feel full.

If cooking beets, wash them, chop off greens and ends, and boil for 20 minutes. Peel and chop into chunks. If you are using them raw, wash them, chop off the greens and ends, and peel off the skin as you would peel a potato. Chop the raw beets into dice for a high speed blender; shred if using a regular blender.
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste-test for sweetness and add a touch more maple syrup if you need it sweeter. Best nutrition if you drink it right away, preferably the same day.
