Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 1 hour (if roasting beets)

This easy recipe provides a tasty and drinkable way to incorporate beets (AKA amazing super food) into your family's diet. You can use raw or roasted beets, however roasted beets will yield a smoother texture. In my opinion it's worth the time to roast the beets, especially if you make this for kids. I rarely have time to spend an hour waiting for beets to roast when I am ready to make this. Take advantage of the fact that you can store roasted beets in the fridge for several days. To save time, I wash and wrap the beets in aluminum foil, and toss into a 400 degree oven for about an hour, while I am doing something else that week.

If you are trying to cut back on calories, you can substitute water for the almond milk. It will give you a brighter red color, and fewer calories. The other modification I would recommend is if you are not a fan of straight up chia seeds, I like to sprinkle Nutriva Superseed Blend with Coconut on top, which I get from Amazon (aff link.)

Ingredients

  • 2 large bananas, cut into chunks and frozen
  • 1 c. frozen strawberries
  • 1 c. frozen raspberries
  • 2 large red beets, roasted, peeled, and chopped
  • 2 c. almond milk, unsweetened
  • 6-8 large ice cubes
  • 1 T. chia seeds
  • Optional: 4 sprigs fresh mint, for garnish

Instructions

1

Add the frozen bananas, berries, beets, almond milk, and ice cubes to a high-speed blender. Cover and blend on the highest setting until completely smooth and creamy, approximately 2 minutes. If necessary, add a little water to reach the desired consistency if the mixture is too thick.

2

Divide between 4 glasses or mason jars and top each serving with some chia seeds or Nutriva Superseed Blend with Coconut . Garnish each glass or jar with a sprig of fresh mint, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
