      That beet smoothie looks amazing! I've never had avocado in my smoothies, but it seems to be a popular idea. I'll have to give this one a try :)

      We often enjoy smoothies; they're a great way to add fresh fruits and veggies to our diet. I'd never thought of some of you combinations, though, especially adding fennel root to a smoothie. I look forward to trying it! Voted up and shared!
