  3. Pour into tall glasses and serve immediately.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

Use fresh beets for the best flavor. If fresh beets are unavailable, you can substitute one 8-ounce package refrigerated cooked whole baby beets for the fresh beets (see photo, page xx).

Make-Ahead Tip:

Prepare smoothies as directed. Transfer to an airtight freezer container. Cover and chill for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 6 months. If frozen, thaw in the refrigerator. Stir well before serving.
