Beet Smoothies

Oh beet smoothies. Making these was a lot of fun. For starters, I told a friend that I was going to make some beet smoothies and she thought I said meat smoothies. She just kind of smiled and said “that sounds interesting”. When she told me what she had heard, I was shocked that she would think I would actually make a meat smoothie. She said she knows I make a lot of weird things, so why not. It was a funny exchange.

Then, when I told Hubby about these smoothies, he was not so excited. Usually, he’s open to any new foods and he’s been really receptive to all the pink food I’ve been feeding him. But the beet smoothie just didn’t sound good to him.

Good thing these beet smoothies are awesome. You can’t taste the beets at all, but you’re still getting all the nutrients of eating raw beets. Hubby drank his smoothie and half of mine. We froze the rest and Hubby drank them for breakfast the next two days.

    Loving the look of this recipe. Is it tart enough so that I could can it using using the water bath method, or do you think I should employ pressure? I’m about to come into a dozen pints of blueberries, and I’m trying to be creative. 🙂

    I made your curd as part of my newest recipe (Eeyore’s Birthday Cake–angel food cake with blueberry curd filling), and I just wanted to say that it turned out fantastic! The curd was really easy to make and super delicious. 🙂

    So I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I just made this recipe and it seems something went awry. It didn’t come out very purple, more like a bluish gray, and it doesn’t really taste like blueberries. I used 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Did I use the wrong kind of blueberries maybe?
