Refreshing Berry Smoothies
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour (if roasting beets)
Note: Raw or roasted beets can be used in this recipe. However, roasted beets will yield a smoother texture. To save time on busy mornings, wash and wrap the beets in aluminium foil and toss into a hot oven for approximately 1 hour while making dinner throughout the week. Store roasted beets in the refrigerator for several days until ready to use.
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
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.
Divide between 4 glasses or mason jars and top each serving with some chia seeds. Garnish each glass or jar with a sprig of fresh mint, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
