Need a health booster? These Rainbow Smoothie Shots come in four tasty flavors and are jam-packed with nutrients.

We really hit the ground running this fall, with the tulip-man pulling long hours at his new company and me basically living on the Dutch train system to get across the Netherlands for school each day. It feels a bit like shoveling dirt. Except as soon as you feel like you’ve got to the bottom of the dirt pile, a dump truck comes with another ton of dirt.

Do you ever feel like that? If you have then you know that this is the time when you 1) don’t have time to get sick, but 2) get sick anyways. And that’s where smoothie shots come in.

I’ve been keeping us powered by the tasty magic of green smoothies each morning, but for the weeks when you need a serious health kick, these smoothie shots are it. They’re loaded with veggies and roots and perfect for drinking alongside breakfast to get you going in the morning.

Ingredients

Red Smoothie Shot

  • 4 strawberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped beets
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 5 mL
  • 1 tsp honey 5 mL

Orange Smoothie Shot

  • 1/2 carrot peeled and grated
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger 5 g
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp honey 5 mL

Yellow Smoothie Shot

  • 1/2 banana
  • 2 tsp fresh grated ginger 10 g

  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric

Green Smoothie Shot

  • 1 cup spinach 30 g
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger 5 g
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 5 mL
  • 1 tsp honey 5 mL

Instructions

  1. Blend: Choose which smoothie shot you want to make, then add its ingredients to a blender, along with 1 or 2 tablespoons of water. Blend until smooth, adding a touch more water as needed to get things moving. If making the red or yellow smoothie, serve fresh from the blender.

  2. Strain: If making the orange or green smoothie, you'll want to strain it. Set a few layers of paper towels or a cheesecloth over a bowl. Spoon in the smoothie shot then gently twist and squeeze the juice into the bowl. Pour juice into a shot glass and serve.
