This gorgeous and delicious berry beet smoothie is a great way to start your morning! Berries and beets combine perfectly to make a wonderfully sweet smoothie that you’re sure to love.
When I need an simple, quick breakfast option, I often turn to smoothies.
Smoothies are an easy way to get some extra fruits and veggies into your system, and this berry beet smoothie is delicious and beautiful, too.
Now, if you aren’t a beet lover, don’t worry. This recipe is a great way to incorporate beets into your diet. With all the berries and mangoes, you won’t taste the beets at all. They just add a nice sweetness, and of course a gorgeous red hue to this drink.
- Beet Puree – It’s easy to make beet puree, and you will need to do this step before you want to make this smoothie. Simply peel and dice some beets, then place in a pan with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until the beets are fork tender.
- Berries – I recommend frozen berries so that the smoothie has a frosty texture. I used blackberries and blueberries, but you can use any berry that you like.
- Water – Using water in this recipe allows the color of the smoothie to stay very vibrant. If you would like a creamier texture, you can use non-dairy milk. The smoothie will then have a lighter pink color.
You can be creative with this recipe! Feel free to use different berries if you like. Try strawberries or raspberries. Cherries could also be a delicious option.
If you would like a creamier smoothie, feel free to use non-dairy milk instead of water.
A good blender makes it easy to blend a variety of fruits and vegetables. You don’t necessarily need a super fancy blender, like a Vitamix, but you do need one that can handle blending frozen fruit.
