Beet Cabbage Smoothie Recipe

I’m definitely loving my cabbage and my beets lately. Health benefits of beets and cabbage are often talked about, yet most people don’t eat these veggies on a regular basis.

My son will not eat them, unless they are concealed in a creamy soup or smoothie.

They are also very inexpensive and available year round.

I’m also experimenting with other inexpensive and unappreciated ingredients for smoothies, such as cabbage and whole grains. This recipe is a variation of my previous recipes for beet smoothie and beet borscht – I rarely make the exact same recipe twice as I usually cannot decide which combination I like most.

Beet-Plum-Cabbage Smoothie

Beet-Plum-Cabbage Smoothie


  • 1 medium beet, washed well and quartered
  • 1/4 of a small red cabbage, cut in chunks
  • 2 cups kale, spinach, or other mild leafy greens
  • 8 plums (I used Italian plums)
  • 1 or 2 bananas
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. agave or other sweetener
  • 3 cups water/ice


  1. Blend all ingredients in a power-blender on high speed. If you don't have powerful blender, you may use cooked beets for more creamy texture.

Beets are healthy, delicious, inexpensive, plus beet smoothies are very photogenic.  They also have a cleansing effect on the body, so don’t drink too much of this smoothie if you are a beginner.  I drink eat as much as I wanted, but some people may experience detoxifying symptoms, so just be aware.
