You're not going to believe what's in this smoothie. You're probably not going to like the sound of it. You're probably going to be enticed by the pictures. And you're probably going to have to trust me when I say you should try it!! I don't know how these ingredients all ended up in a smoothie except that I had too many beets to know what to do with and wanted to use some of my parsley so I could trim back my plant that was becoming a jungle. Work has been pretty busy lately so I thought maybe aiming for something drinkable would be convenient since I knew I wouldn't have time for a fork and knife. But beets in a drink? I wasn't so sure. But why not try, right? I added a banana to keep up with my eat-more-fruit campaign and figuring maybe this could go into the smoothie category? And then I thought some cinnamon might offset the earthy beet, so I added that too:) I was very pleasantly surprised and have made one of these almost every day for the last two weeks!

beet, banana, parsley, and cinnamon smoothie

1 beet, roasted or boiled
1 banana
5-7 sprigs of parsley
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup soy milk

Blend all ingredients using a blender. Store it in a 12 ounce mason jar and bring it with you for a healthy snack when you're in a time crunch!
