Smoothies are such a perfect breakfast for hot days. This one would hit the spot for dessert or a snack too. The beets, strawberries, and cocoa together give a chocolatey and earthy but sweet flavor.
Red Velvet Smoothie for 2
2 cups baby spinach
1 cup milk
1/2 cup ice cubes
1 1/4 cup strawberries
2-3 beets, roasted
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
Add spinach, milk, and ice to a blender and blend very well.
Then add in the strawberries, beets, and cocoa powder. Blend well and add a splash of milk if too thick.
Pour & enjoy!
I loved this for variety since my other smoothies are predominantly fruity. The chocolate hint kind of made it seem like dessert…or maybe just what a weekday morning needs.
