Beet Smoothie Recipe
Are you looking for a nutrient dense smoothie?
One that has vital nutrients in it for pregnancy, such as folic acid, iron, protein, omega 3’s, and more.
Or, maybe you just need a smoothie that will help get more fruits and veggies (and nutrients) into your kids. You know, because they absolutely refuse to eat them.
Either way, this beet smoothie recipe will be perfect for you and your kids!
The beets alone provide many nutrients, such as:
- folic acid (vital to help prevent birth defects)
- vitamin C (to boost immunity in you and your kids)
- iron (to help prevent anemia)
And then add in the spinach, banana, strawberries, chia seeds and flaxseeds; and you have plenty of protein, omega 3’s, vitamin A, calcium, and more! You really can’t beet this smoothie when it comes to nutrition.
My Opinion on Beets
Beets are an acquired taste (and smell).
The first time a tried roasting beets, haha, about six months, our whole home filled up with the smell of roasted beets. No one was happy. It literally smelt like we were roasting dirt.
From then on I’ve opted for canned and sliced beets. It’s easier and less smelly. (Our home isn’t that big, so the smell of roasting, or even boiling them, takes over the home pretty quickly.)
My girls and I had tried 3 to 4 beet smoothie recipes before I decided to simply make my own recipe. And I’m so I did, too!
My older daughter still doesn’t like beets, even in smoothies, and even though they turn everything pink. But, my almost 3 year old and I drank this whole smoothie within minutes of making my beet smoothie recipe.
