Market Monday: Gingered Beet Smoothie Print Recipe Print Recipe

 

Well look at that, Monday and reality have collided, once again.

I apologize for the late post. Both my flights yesterday were delayed and I didn’t get home until after 2am. Then woke up and the blog was down. I took that as I sign that I should go back to bed, so I did & dreamt that I was still in Mexico…

I came home and found a bunch of beets in the fridge. The Mr. know’s I need a good reset after 5 days filled with food & wine.

Beets have that both an earthiness and sweetness about them. I love them plain, on salads, in quinoa and now, in smoothies. There really  isn’t a way I wouldn’t eat them.

Any other beet lovers out there?

With the sweetness of the strawberries, earthiness of the beets and the spice of the ginger, it’s the perfect reset smoothie. Just in time for Spring.

    Ginger and beet are lovely ingredients to work with.  Another stellar pairing.

    I’ve made strawberry beet smoothies before but wasn’t too crazy about them.  Good call on the creamy!  I think they were missing that.  And to answer your question, ME ME ME!  I’m a beet lover!

    YUM! I love beets, especially with ginger. Have you tried the pre-cooked baby beets at Trader Joe’s? They’re organic, already steamed, no added ingredients, just beets. They’re perfect for quick smoothies if you’re short on time!

    YES, I buy them all the time!!

    Yesssss! I’m obsessed with beets. I think I have 5 large ones in my fridge right now…I can’t even wait.

    I’ve never tried them raw in this smoothie, but they’d definitely give a different flavor and wouldn’t make as sweet. If you try raw beets, let me know what you think!

    Ohh I’m sure it’s hard to be back to reality after such an amazing time away! Can’t wait to hear more about your trip! And I’m not really a beet fan but maybe combining them with strawberry and ginger would dull the flavor down a little for me! I’m going to have to try this!

     How many of the baby beets would you use in this recipe to replace one regular sized beet?

  • http://www.seventeenthandirving.com/ Lauren | Seventeenth & Irving

    They are one of my favorite discoveries! I love beets but the prep work is kind of difficult for me to use them very often, but now that I have those…I’m going to make this often! I tried it yesterday and it was fantastic.
