Berry Beet Smoothie Recipe

Who else out there has become swept up in the beet craze?

I feel like it was not too long ago that most people would have turned up their nose at a berry beet smoothie recipe.

But not anymore!  The word has gotten out that beets are HIGHLY nutritious and actually taste REALLY good when prepared properly.

However, sometimes there is just TOO much of that earthy, beet-ey goodness for my taste… even when paired with naturally sweet berries.

The fix?… All of that beet flavor needs to be balanced out by a touch of sweetness.

What Kind of Sweetener Did I Use in this Very Berry Beet Smoothie?

My sweetener of choice in this vegan breakfast smoothie recipe is Wholesome Organic Stevia.  This sweetener not only tastes great when paired with the beet powder, but it is also:

  • Free from additives and artificial ingredients
  • USDA organic
  • Non-GMO
  • Zero calories and no glycemic impact
  • Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Kosher

Easy Breezy Beet Root Powder

Normally beets can be quite time-consuming to prepare.

Not only that, but I always seem to get that purple-red stain ALL over my cutting board and just about every other utensil I use.

The best way I have found to get the health benefits of beets without the mess is to use beet root powder.

Simply add it to your berry smoothie with a bit of Wholesome Organic Stevia to balance out the earthiness and voila!

All of the nutrition without the mess!

    Recently heard of the health benefits of beet powder. This is the first recipe I tried with beet powder and I added some unflavored protein powder to it. It’s just the right mix of sweet and beet-y. This will become a staple smoothie for me!

    1. Yay! So happy to hear you enjoyed it, Bella! What else have you made with beet powder? Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and rating! 🙂
