Getting your kid to eat beets

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. 

Down the hatch!

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.

…it might even grant wishes

What’s your favorite smoothie combo?
