BEETS AND BERRY BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

Yes, yes, yes. The picture says it all. I have already spoken enough about Breakfast smoothies. So, to know what that was all about.... click here please.

This time I replaced a fruit with a vegetable and my choice was Beetroot. Some ideas occur instantly and I wanted one more incorporated with the same alphabet and " Bingo".. I zeroed on Blueberries. But when it came to colour intensification the beets won hands down.
Looking for more beetroot recipes?.

  3. Awesome recipe Sowmya! If the dates are added in the blender, honey can be eliminated I suppose. Love the gorgeous color :)

    1. Thank you Ammu. Of course, the honey can be eliminated. That is why I have mentioned it optional. The beets and berries are already sweet. But freezing generally brings down the sweetness quotient. Hence the addition of dates. Again, some may feel the sweetness ok. They can eliminate the dates as well if they feel. Replacing berries with Bananas is a killer combo as well and will not require any extra sugar. Try this version when you can and let me know. Your feedback is important to me.
