Writing about what feeds me.
Not too long ago I was making soup almost every week: butternut squash and split pea, for example. I’ve never owned an immersion blender (birthday wish list?), so I usually just pour the soup in batches into a blender and puree it for smoothness.
Well, since then I haven’t used the blender at all and have been feenin’ for some serious smoothie action. Why’ve I been procrastinating? What have I been waiting for exactly? This recipe and its accompanying photo I guess: Mixed Berry and Beet Smoothie! =)
I’ve never cooked with beets before, so this excites me even more.
I finally tried this recipe out and I’m excited to say that it is just as delightful as I predicted. Yes. I said, “delightful”.
The only slight modifications I made were that I used coconut “extract” from a can, maple syrup (twice the amount of honey required) because that’s what Canadians do, and I used muesli instead of granola.
Arnel is a beet fan, so it tasted fine to him. For me, I wouldn’t mind a liiiiittle bit less beet flavor. Otherwise this smoothie is fantastic and I will certainly be making it again (tomorrow!).
