Find Out This Smoothie’s Sweet Secret
Why it can't be beet
Just like Matthew McConaughey, this smoothie is sweet, tempting, and makes your heart race just looking at it. But like Matt, this little glass of perfection has its secrets. No, it wasn’t caught naked playing the bongos — it’s actually super healthy!
Yup, we were shocked too! Turns out, this smoothie isn’t your typical sugar-bomb shake disguised as a healthy snack. In fact, one of the key ingredients in the drink (which clocks in at 290 calories) is a nutrient-packed beet! Entertainment reporter and blogger, Whitney English combines the beet with strawberries, a quarter of an avocado, and protein powder to create this uh-mazingly healthy concoction that tastes just as good as it looks.
