Who actually liked beets when they were a wee one? Having only recently acquired a fondness for the deep, rich root, I can hardly force my nine-year old to eat ’em up with a smile.
Enter…the beloved smoothie.
This nutritional bonanza has two raw beets, a handful of parsley, chocolate mint, banana, a bit of yogurt, honey, frozen blueberries and raspberries and a squeeze of lime juice. Everything but the banana, lime and yogurt was grown within a 5 mile radius of our home.
Lookit that color! Much better than my infamous brown smoothie.
What a vibrant way to start a Monday morning. Beets in his belly.
It’s almost like…magic.
What’s your favorite smoothie combo?
