Yes, you heard that right–a BEET smoothie.
It was good! Almost too sweet…probably because it should really be called an applesauce smoothie with a little bit of beet puree. But man, does a little go a LONG way in terms of color!
I loved the chewy bits of dried cranberries. I chose this smoothie because I had all the ingredients on-hand, namely the beet puree. I brought about 3/4 C of it with me with all the stuff from our freezer. I still have some beet puree left, so I’ll be trying at least two other beet smoothie “recipes” in the coming days. I’m trying, in earnest, to use up anything I can that we brought with us. Our meals this week (I’m finally going to go all-out and cook a bunch here in the apt; free hotel food be damned!) center around the last bits of random frozen meats and pantry staples.
-sliders with chips and fruit
-herbed salmon with orzo and tomatoes
-wheat berry salad with orange and mustard chicken
-quinoa with spinach, parsley and spring onions
The highlight of my day? GROCERY SHOPPING!
