Beet Berry Smoothie
Why not add beets into a smoothie? Who doesn’t loves smoothies? Well, I have a recipe for that! The Beet Berry Smoothie recipe is loaded full of super foods. Beets, strawberries, blueberries, and Greek yogurt. This recipe is full of foods great for brain and memory function, among a whole list of there things.
Beets are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Beets contain a phytonutrient called betalains which has properties that act as a cancer protective antioxidant and also has anti-inflammatory properties. These antioxidants are similar to those for in berries. Beets are a good source of fiber. They also contain glutathiones, which help act to help clean the blood to act as a natural “detox” agent.
Smoothies themselves are great for many reasons. They boost energy, allow you to add fruits and veggies to your diet, a source of fiber, contain antioxidants, lots of nutrients, and the recipes are so versatile. Kids also love them! My boys both have fun gathering all the ingredients and making smoothies of their own.
Here are the ingredients that you will need:
- 1/3 C Cooked Beets
- 1/3 C Strawberries
- 1/4 Blueberries
- 1/3 C Greek Yogurt (or 1/2 Banana)
- 1/2-1 C Mik (of choice)
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 T Honey
Smoothies are incredibly easy to make. You can either use fresh or frozen ingredient depending on the season. Smoothie recipes are very versatile. If you don’t have an ingredient you can leave it out or substitute it for something else. No need for yet another run to the grocery store! For all smoothie recipes, simply add all ingredient into a blender or one similar to a magic bullet. I typically like to use a magic bullet because they are very easy to use. They are a mini blender so to speak. The clean up for it is also very quick. If I am making more than one at a time you can either pour into a glass and re-use the same cup or use a blender.
