  • 3 medium beets, peeled and quartered (9 oz.)*

  • 1 ½ cup frozen unsweetened blueberries

  • 1 ½ cup frozen unsweetened whole strawberries

  • 1 ½ cup pomegranate juice

  • 3 tablespoon honey

  • 1 ½ cup chopped, trimmed Swiss chard or kale


  1. In a medium saucepan cook beets, covered, in boiling water 30 to 40 minutes or until very tender. Drain beets in a colander. Run cold water over beets until cool; drain well.

  2. In a blender combine beets, berries, pomegranate juice, and honey. Cover and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape sides of blender as needed. Add chard (blender will be full); cover and blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape sides of blender as needed. Serve immediately.


Use fresh beets for the best flavor. If fresh beets are unavailable, you can substitute one 8-oz. pkg. refrigerated cooked whole baby beets for the fresh beets.
