Heart-Beet Smoothie Bowl

BY : PUBLISHED : January 5th, 2021 UPDATED: September 27th, 2021

Smoothie bowls are a great way to switch up your regular smoothie and turn it into a fancy and more “chewable” breakfast. Slightly more thick than a drinkable smoothie, you can eat it with a spoon and add a wide variety of toppings to boost its nutrition content even more! We highly recommend getting in the smoothie bowl wagon and encourage you to start playing with the endless possibilities they bring. This Beet Smoothie Bowl is bright pink and full of goodness to start your day right!

This is yet another recipe from our original Friendly Vegan Cookbook which laid the base for our latest printed version!

Beet the Beets

Let’s face it, beet is not the most popular vegetable regardless of it’s gorgeous intense red/pink color and the fact that that’s where most things sweet originate from. The reason is probably the same many amazing vegetables get a bad rep (enter brussels sprouts), we don’t know how to cook them properly and we can’t see past the boiled picture. When it comes to beets, roasting them is an amazing way to bring out their sweetness and intensify those delicious flavors.

But it is a known fact that some veggies are even more nutritious eaten raw, this is one of them and that is why this HeartBeet Smoothie is so good. It contains amazing nutrients like potassium, vitamin C, and the, always welcomed, fiber.

If you usually do not agree with beets flavor then do not fret, the sweetness of the bananas and tartness of the raspberries will prevail.

Toppings Galore

Now onto our favorite part: Toppings. The right toppings can really take a smoothie bowl (like this Beet Smoothie Bowl!) to the next level and we are here to display all those amazing possibilities. From healthy fats like coconut flakes, chia seeds, or your favorite nut butter; to fresh fruits like mango chunks, sliced strawberries, or sliced bananas. The sky’s the limit! Let us know what your favorite toppings are!
