Beet and Date Smoothie



Beets. It is my one odd pregnancy craving this time around. The quickest, and probably the most beautiful, way to enjoy these gorgeous red gems is in a smoothie. This Beet and Date smoothie, or some variation of it (I've substituted dark cherries for dates in one version) has become my go-to breakfast recently. But probably, the best unintended result of my new-found beet addiction is the fact that my toddler also got on board. He's probably attracted to the color and has no idea he's getting almost an entire serving of vegetables. But I'll take that as a win for this Mommy.

Beet and Date Smoothie 
Makes 1 serving

1 small, boiled beet
2-3 medjool dates
8 oz almond milk
1 scoop vegan protein
1 cup ice

Blend all ingredients together. Serve with berries on top.
