STRAWBERRY BEET SMOOTHIE (GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE)

STRAWBERRY BEET SMOOTHIE (GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE)

Strawberries and beet lightly sweetened with honey and blended with coconut milk make this beautiful smoothie the perfect healthy treat!

It has been dreary here lately.  Rainy, cloudy, cold.  NO fun.  I need some sunshine in my life!!!  Enter this Strawberry Beet Smoothie! Foods with vibrant colors make me happy, especially in the winter when the days are short and we don’t see much sunshine.  My kids looove smoothies (and so do I), so I was brainstorming how I could make a super vibrant smoothie, and beets were the first thing that came to mind.  I LOVE the color beets give foods, they are so gorgeous!!!  I don’t always love how beets taste (minor detail), but I knew with strawberries and a touch of honey, the beet flavor wouldn’t be too strong.  I was right on!

If you happen to love pink, or have a daughter who loves pink, this smoothie will be a big hit!  My daughter called it pink-tastic, and proceeded to chug the entire thing down.  Truth be told, my non-pink-loving son also loved it!  With Valentine’s Day coming up, I think I’ve found the perfect treat for my kiddos.  Add a few dark chocolate chips, and it sends it over the top!
