Red Velvet Smoothie

Time to get into the Valentine's Day spirit here with this Red Velvet Smoothie, and bonus--it's a great healthy breakfast or snack!  I love using beets for their bright red color, and the raw cacao powder adds that chocolate flavor to make it a perfect red velvet combo!

Red Velvet Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 fresh beet or about 1/2 cup frozen beets
  • 2 medjool dates
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted almond butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Topping: cacao nibs


First, blend the frozen banana in a food processor or high powered blender.  Then add all additional ingredients and blend until smooth.  I like to top mine with cacao nibs.  Enjoy!!
