Beet and Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie

Beet and Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie

I've been topping up my breakfasts lately with quick frozen fruit smoothies, and this bright pink strawberry concoction has very quickly become one of my favorites. Cold, refreshing and creamy, it's not only packed with plenty of sweet strawberry flavor but also with the super vitamin and mineral nutrition of red beets. It's so tasty that I've started buying bags of red beets to have on hand instead of small bunches … and so nourishing, too, that you'll want to serve it any time of day. In fact, I think I'll go make another one right now!

That sounds delicious! I have frozen strawberries and canned beets on hand, so I think I'll try it this weekend :)

not only does that look good, it sounds marvellous. I'd make it today only if I had fresh local strawberries. So will have to wait for the British summer.

Frozen strawberries work quite well if fresh are not available.
