Your Heart Might Skip a Beet – Beet Smoothies
We are all guilty of over-extending ourselves at times, but just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat healthily. Some of the best “on the go” snacks are high in nutrients. For someone like me that loves fresh fruit, smoothies are the perfect snack to grab on my way out the door.
Prep time for smoothies is pretty minimal (5 minutes tops!) You can use a blender or food processor to combine all of your ingredients together into one delicious drink.
For my smoothie, I used:
½ raw beet
1 tsp honey
6 oz. yogurt
This makes 1-2 servings depending on the size of your glass. To be honest, I was shocked at how good it tasted. I coaxed my grandma into trying it too and she loved it!
You can use any combination of the ingredients above and you can substitute a non-dairy product or even ice cubes for the yogurt. Smoothies are forgiving and can be tweaked until they taste just right. The beets not only add a bright pop of color, but a surprisingly satisfying sweetness. What a great way to start or end your day!
