Vegan Smoothie Recipes: Ginger Berry Beet Shake

I love sneaking vegetables into my breakfasts so that I get a kick start on meeting my servings for the day. I find that the easiest way to do this is to throw them into my blender frozen and blend.

Lately, I’ve been loving this combination of ginger, berries, and beet. The earthy taste of beets pairs well with sweet berries and spicy ginger. Not to mention the beets turn the shake a pretty shade of pink. This is a wonderful combo to spice up your morning routine. Not only are beets packed with immunity-boosting vitamin C, they’re also a good source of essential minerals potassium and manganese.

I topped by beet shake with almond milk yogurt, but some other topping ideas are fresh berries, shredded coconut, or granola. If you don’t have steamed and frozen beets on hands, you can throw in fresh beets, but you may need to adjust the frozen fruit to achieve your desired consistency.
