Robyn's Hot Pink Breakfast Smoothie (Theresa)

1 1/2 c. unsweetened coconut juice (Good Earth has the best price)
1/2 beet, peeled and quartered (best price I've found is Winco)
2 carrots, with skin on ends sliced off
1/4 c. dates (Costco has a big bag over by the Craisins that is super cheap and huge) (Winco bulk or Good Earth are both better prices than Sunflower)
1/4 c. raw cashews (Winco bulk or Good Earth are both better prices than Sunflower)
12 frozen strawberries (Costco frozen or buy fresh in season and freeze yourself)
2 tsp. vanilla

Blend twice.  Once leaves it a bit grainy because of the cashews.  Makes about 1 quart.  I usually do it without the dates because it is too sweet for me, but a lot depends on your strawberries. *I sometimes add the beet greens too, just for fun.
