Beet Berry Smoothie Bowl

This smoothie bowl is one of my favorite breakfast choices in a long time. We found it completely refreshing and clean and rejuvenating. Exactly how you want to start your day.

The jarred beets are a little bit of the secret. First of all, the color of this is breathtaking. As you can see. If you have any doubt that you eat with your eyes, this bowl might change that thinking.

Beets are naturally sweet, and the fact that the beets are pickled adds acidity to the bowls, and acidity is always nice in pretty much every recipe you can think of.   Think about what a squeeze of lemon juice does to a smoothie or a cobbler or a pie—it brightens the flavor considerably. But in this case I used Aunt Nellie’s Pickled beets and—facts being facts—the odds that I would have cooked, peeled and pickled some beets myself to add to a smoothie would have been slim to none.

I’m so pleased to be partnering with Aunt Nellie’s on this post—and when they asked me to think of what kind of recipe I wanted to create I jumped at the thought of brunch, because I’ve been thinking about smoothie bowls of late, and thought that anchoring one with their addicting beets would be a good move. And it was—a really good move.

And they also added a lovely nutritional pop to the smoothie bowl. Beets are antioxidant-rich, and provide vitamins (like Vitamin A, C and Folate), minerals (like Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Potassium) and fiber.

Back to the smoothies—just pop everything into a blender.

And blend away, making sure to pulse everything and then let the machine run until the mixture is smooth. Scrape down the sides and give it a final blend. The mixture will be nice and thick.

Pour it into bowls—glass bowls are perfect as they will show off the gorgeous color on all sides.

Top the smoothie bowls with anything you like, from chia seeds.

And then a bit of honey.

If you let the berries thaw halfway, this would be a terrific smoothie to drink with a straw.

If you want to make just two smoothie bowls (and btw, these are generous sized bowls, you could also serve them in smaller portions), just make half the recipe, but for the whole recipe you do want to do this in two batches, and not overfill that blender.

    Can you use plain canned beets instead of pickled?

    1. Yes but you might want to add a splash more of lemon juice to hit that lovely acidic note!
