Avocado, Beet and Strawberry Smoothie

While perusing the aisles at Costco this past weekend, something new caught our eye: Love Beets Beet Powder. Generally speaking, we prefer to get the actual fruit or vegetable—not a dried, powdered or concentrated version of it. But, we’re always open to trying new things. Plus, if this powder works well in variety of food options (as it claims to), it might allow us to get the benefits of eating beets when they are out-of-season and hard to find in the grocery store.

So, we bought it and our first experiment was to make a smoothie using it as well as frozen avocado chunks (also from Costco!). Good news? It totally worked. Even better news? This smoothie isn’t overly sweet and could easily be enjoyed as a breakfast, snack, or dessert. Best news? Otto loved it! We hope you will, too.

Ingredients
1 C frozen avocado chunks
1 C (~3 large) fresh strawberries
1 C almond milk
2 tsp Love Beets Beet Powder
small spring of fresh mint for garnish

Method

Put all the ingredients into a Vitamix or high-powered blender.

Blend on medium for 2 minutes to get it going and then on high for 3 to 5 minutes to makes sure everything is blended to a thick, smooth texture.

Pour into glasses and garnish with mint (optional).

Enjoy immediately, or store in an air-tight container (with as little air as possible) for up to 24 hours.
