Very Berry Beet Protein Power Smoothie

Very Berry Beet Protein Power Smoothie Recipe

While I'm partial to many a root vegetable, I love beets. Like, really love beets. Like, my current favorite kombucha flavor is:


Beet Kombucha

Seriously, it's yummy, you should try it. Anyway, beets...

OK, yes, I'm a little obsessed with beets lately, but beets are really good for you! Yet, I know so many people who don't like beets. (It's OK, we can still be friends). Beets contain Vitamin C and folate as well as many minerals our bodies need. Plus, they have fiber and a cup of beets only has around 60 calories. WIN.

While I eat a lot of things just because they're good for me, beets I truly love. In an effort to encourage the beet love I'm playing around with beet recipes. Right now smoothie recipes in particular. For beet lovers and not-so-beet lovers alike!

This Very Berry Beet Protein Power Smoothie is chocked full of good for you things like protein, berries, and beets. It also has my new non-dairy milk find: Milkadamia (isn't that the greatest name?) Macadamia Milk.

It's good for you and yes, it's delicious. Trust me, if you're on the beet fence, TRY IT!

No. Really. Try it ;)


Very Berry Beet Protein Power Smoothie - Ingredients

Ingredients


1 Cup Milkadamia Unsweetened Macadamia Milk
1/2 Cup Frozen Beets
1 Cup Frozen Mixed Berries
2 Scoops Creamy Vanilla Wild Whey, Grass-Fed Whey Protein Powder


Berry Beet Smoothie Recipe


Directions


Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth. If your blender isn't so great you might try adding the beats and berries slowly.

Notes


I can't find frozen beets around here, Idaho problems, but I know Earthbound Farms has some if you're lucky enough to find them where you are. You can also freeze canned sliced beets ahead of time in a pinch, which is what I did here.

This recipe makes one XL smoothie just for you or two medium smoothies to share.

I also would just like to note that I avoided all beet puns and jokes for this entire post. It was really tough for me. I can't promise such restraint next time... ;)
