Valentine’s Day Smoothie

Valentine’s Day LOVE Smoothie❤

With v-day coming up, I decided to add a pop of colour to mine and hubby’s morning smoothie! (Especially with all this SNOW, some colour can help brighten up our mood🤦‍♀️)

What gave it this beautiful colour- can you guess the secret ingredient?!

BEETS ! This root vegetable is rich in vitamins and nutrients. Some of its highlighted benefits are as follows:

  • high in antioxidants
  • high in folic acid
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Detoxifying
  • Boosts athletic performance
  • Lowers blood pressure

PLUS- it is low in sugar! I am trying to keep my morning sugar intake at a minimum to avoid any afternoon crashes and keep my anxiety at bay. So I have been exploring with veggies in my shakes. Stay tuned for more 🙂

Try this recipe out – just in time for V-DAY 🥰 Your partner won’t even notice there are beets in there – let’s keep that part a secret 😉
