My Dark Red Drink

-1 1/2 beets
-1 1/2 cups of strawberries
-2 cups of orange juice
-pinch of salt
-2 handfuls of ice

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Wrap 3 beets in aluminum foil with olive oil and put them on each corner of the edge of the pan (the edges get more hotter in the edges quicker than it does in the middle); roast for 30 minutes. Gently open the foil (carefully so you won't burn) and let cool until easy to manage. Rub with a paper towel to get rid of the skin before dicing it to put in the blender. Cut in half the 2nd beet and reserve the other beet and a half for another time.

In the blender: strawberries, orange juice, a pinch of salt and beets (after you diced them). Puree for a minute or two before adding the ice. Puree well so it's not chunky.

Pour in glass and serve
