Hot Pink Smoothie

 (This recipe is for a large Vita-Mix or Blend Tec container, if you have a regular blender, please cut recipe in 1/2 and do two batches)
  • 1 ½ -2 Cup Water
  • 1 Can Coconut Water or Coconut Milk
  • 7 Prunes
  • ¾  Cup Raw Cashew pieces
  • 2 Medium Carrots (cut up if using a smaller blender)
  • ¼ - ½  Fresh Beet (peel and cut your beet up into fourths or eighths-depending on how large your beet is and freeze in a ziploc bag)
  • 2 T. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 T. Hemp Protein Powder (Vanilla Flavored)
  • 12-15 Strawberries, frozen (or 16 oz. bag)
  • Agave (to taste, about 3-4 T.)
Put the first 6 ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Once the nuts are smooth and there are no more chunks, you can add the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth and add as much agave and strawberries as you would like to sweeten it. Make sure to peel your carrots and beets so you don't have an odd taste from the skin. If you need to add more water if it's too thick, just add until everything blends well.
