Beetroot in a smoothie? You bet! Just look how pretty ??
Pretty in a bowl and absolutely safe from vegetable detectors (aka mini-humans). But sadly not colour-fast, so maybe avoid eating it on your white sofa.
Smoothie Bowls and me, we have something of a love-hate relationship. The kind of affection that brings on both harmony and the deepest feelings of hatred.
Only, those feelings of hatred mainly come from me, smoothie bowls don’t really share my levels of passion, ha!
But let me explain.
A few years ago,
when I was still young and beautiful approximately after just finishing school, I was obsessed with healthy eating. Salads, smoothies, soups, a lot lot lot of vegetables.
That’s still my jam, but these days I know how to enjoy the occasional indulgent dessert without feeling guilty afterwards.
Or Kinder Schoko-Bons, shhhh. Our little secret.
Because I lovelovelove thicker smoothies, I used to elegantly pour them into bowls back in 2008, scattered a few berries and hippie-hemp seeds on top, done.
Thought about blogging it? A thousand and one times. Actually did blog it? No, because anyone can think of pouring their smoothie into a bowl vs a glass, right?
Riiiight. Epic fail, Nora. Story of my life.
Anyhow, today I’m getting over myself, just because I didn’t bring it to the Internet doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to share it 😉
Here a smoothie bowl in super-mega healthy format, with lots of berries and a nice does of lamb’s lettuce. AND with beetroot- Please don’t let it scare you, you really can’t taste it (as long as your blender ist strong enough, I ♡ my Vitamix (mine is this model on Amazon*) to the moon and back).
Just try it and let me know how you like it. Leave me a comment on this post or share a picture on Instagram using the hashtag #savourynothings!
