Sunrise Surprise: Golden Beet, Orange, and Mango Smoothie

Golden Beet, Orange, and Mango Smoothie

Greet the morning with a vibrant Golden Beet, Orange, and Mango Smoothie. Its yellow hue, energetic nutrients, and delightful flavor inspire a beautiful way to start the day. This Golden Beet, Orange, and Mango Smoothie provides natural energy for your workout, yoga class, or keeping-up-with-children routine. As confessed in previous posts, I am a smoothie junkie. Greens (kale, spinach, beet greens, etc.) are usually the base of most of my smoothies as the alkaline benefits rock my world, but I also create smoothies for fun, for taste, and for purpose. 

Although high in natural sugars*, this fresh and fruity smoothie is an incredible source for superhero nutrients. Plus - the color is stunning! The ingredient combo offers antioxidants, vitamins (such as Vitamin C), minerals (such as potassium), and fiber. Enjoy!

  • 1-2 small golden beets, peeled and quartered
  • 1 orange, peeled 
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup mango (frozen or fresh)



  • handful of power greens (kale, spinach, beet greens)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla Vega protein powder 


1. Gently wash beets. Remove golden beet skins (if preferred). Beet skins are edible, but the smoothie texture may be chunky unless you use a high-powered blender like a Vita-Mix. 

2. Peel orange to use orange segments. 

3. In blender, add coconut water base. Add golden beets, banana, orange segments, and mango. Blend until smooth. 

Note: Using frozen mango creates a chilled smoothie. If using fresh fruit, add 1/2 cup ice for a chilled texture and taste. 


*This smoothie is high in natural sugars, and for me, it works to drink it pre-workout or followed up by or with a balanced meal. Sufficient protein helps me balance blood sugar.
