Beets, spinach, celery, fennel, and cucumber are whirled into a bright, nutrient-packed smoothie that can be made the night before, then shaken up before serving. Steamed beets add a creamier texture, but you can grate raw beets for faster prep. Or swap in leftover cooked sweet potatoes or winter squash.
