Berry Beet Energizing Smoothie Bowl – Vegan + Sugar Free

It’s kind of ironic for me to be sharing a beet smoothie bowl considering what I wrote in my fails post last year. Let’s just say I had a few comments that caused me to rethink that statement and give the ol’ beet smoothie another try.

What I discovered is that I don’t like roasted beets in my smoothie.  I should have realized that was the issue sooner because I like beet juice made from raw beets. But when they’re roasted they take on a sweeter flavor that just doesn’t taste right coming through a straw. Or in this case, a spoon.

So raw beet smoothies. They’re where it’s at, people! I know peeling beets first thing in the morning is so NOT happening, but you can do it ahead of time, chop them up and seal them in a container in the refrigerator for the rest of the week. Problemo Solved.

My favorite beet smoothie combo is made with frozen berries, spinach and a little bit of almond milk. For an extra kick of nutrition, I’ve also been adding MegaFood’s Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder which I find helps keep me energized throughout the day.

Each scoop contains a blend of B12, herbs, beet root and organic green tea leaf specifically selected for their ability to support energy levels, healthy metabolism, and your body’s response to stress.*

I’ve never been much of a coffee drinker but I’m still human and appreciate a little boost to help keep me going in the morning. I love that the Daily Energy Booster gives me a natural alternative that I can use in virtually any smoothie combination because the flavors are so subtle.

That said, I personally recommend trying the beet combo because beets are super good for you. Here are just a few health benefits that they offer:

  • Rich in nitrates which can help increase circulation
  • Good source of B-vitamin folate to support heart health
  • Source of betaine, an amino acid that can help prevent and reduce fat accumulation in the liver
  • High fiber content which aids in healthy digestion

They also make for a pretty smoothie which is great way to trick little ones (or big ones) into drinking their veggies. Cheers to beet smoothies!
