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.

    That is a gorgeous salad. Have you thought about adding some mango to it?

    I have a recipe similar with mangos and strawberries and it is delicious. I have made it with strawberries alone and it was just as good, though.

    I have not thought to add mango to this salad. Sounds intriguing.
