The Beets Me Smoothie

This smoothie is the cutest thing to have ever come out of my blender!  I got this glorious cerise pink color from blending a combination of frozen raspberries and banana, almond milk and yes you guessed it, beets.

This is a really good smoothie choice for kids as you’re packing in extra hidden veggie nutrition from the beets as well as serving them something that tastes like yummy ice cream.  Result!

Beets provide plenty of nutrition such as the mineral potassium & the vitamin riboflavin. Taking potassium helps control blood pressure whilst riboflavin plays an important role in keeping the nervous system functioning properly.
