This is a delicious combination to try for breakfast.  It has plenty of zing thanks to the ginger and lime.  Plus, it’s full of nutrition and is a great way to kick start your morning.

A high powered blender such as these is best for this combination (it takes a bit to chop up ginger).  But you can still achieve good results in a regular blender, so use whatever you have on hand. The trick is to start with small enough pieces and add them a little at a time.

I have used a golden beet because the coloring works well with the other ingredients. However, a red beet will work just as well.  It will just change the color and presentation completely…watch below.
