Last week, I did something I was never able to do while living in Texas:

Pack a bag, hop on a train, and find myself in New York City less than 3 hours later. I spent the week in New York, the weekend in Philadelphia, and was back in my own apartment by Monday morning. All without setting foot in an airport.

Pink Smoothie

I swear, it seems like there’s a smoothie place on every single NYC street corner; you cannot turn your head without running into the likes of a  Liquiteria, Organic Avenue, Papaya King, or Juice Generation. But after spending even just a day in the city, this smoothie pervasiveness makes total sense: Getting around in the city can be an event in itself, and hours of walking the streets and navigating the subway can leave one with quite an appetite. Smoothies to the rescue! They offer a quick and nourishing source of energy replenishment and can easily be taken on the go. Perfect for the city that never sleeps.

The following smoothie would be right at home in one of those aforementioned smoothie shops. High in calcium, fiber, manganese, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, Vitamin C and Vitamin E, its impressive nutritional profile and bright-pink hue immediately reminded me of the Energizer Bunny:

    I had just enough beet puree leftover from another recipe to try this and I’m so glad I did! I happened to have some vanilla protein powder, which was a perfect addition. It was so beautifully pink and cheery to drink! Thank you for this amazing recipe. Delicious! Five hundred stars!
