Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Beets

Holy pink deliciousness! These mashed sweet potatoes with beets are amazing. And just LOOK at that color! The cooked green onions on the top really enhance the flavor of the mashed sweet potatoes and beets.

Hubby ate these in his lunch for a couple days. He said some of the guys at work asked him quite a few questions about the pink food… We both really liked these and I can’t wait to make them again.

Don’t forget about my Power of Pink Challenge – make something PINK by the end of the month to raise Breast Cancer Awareness!

    i have a few questions regarding freezing smoothies. I have been told that every day you have a smoothie in the fridge, nutrients are lost. Is this true with freezing as well? Can I expect to have the same exact nutrition in a two day old smoothie as in one prepared five minutes ago? And lastly, how would thaw a smoothie that has been frozen? It seems like putting them in the fridge overnight to thaw would defeat the objective of trying to retain nutrient quality. Any thoughts?

      I’m not sure about what happens to the nutrients when you freeze a smoothie…

      To thaw it out, I just put it in the fridge overnight. I freeze smoothies for convenience.
