I saw this smoothie in a magazine and figured I’d try it. Beets, blueberries, red lentils, and avocado sounded pretty healthy and it looked very pretty so I gave it a try.

It didn’t taste that great.

But this is really unfair.

I realize now it was really because I’d just been eating ice cream before tasting it. I couldn’t believe something such a beautiful purple could taste like cool mushy creamy dirt.

After a few more sips it started tasting better. It really wasn’t that bad. I just don’t recommend eating ice cream right before.
