Beet-Berry Smoothie Bowl

Summer is here, when the days are hot a cold beverage is just the thing to cool off. This can be a quick meal or enjoyed on the porch. The summer fruits are now available at the market.
This beautiful red bowl packs a nutritional punch with help from the beets, hemp seeds, and yogurt. If you don’t like the texture of raw beets, steam them before adding them to the smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups raspberries (about 5 oz.)
  • 1-1/2 cups blueberries (about 6 oz.)
  • 1/4 lightly packed cup coarsely grated red beet (about 1 oz.)
  • 3 Tbs. hemp seeds (about 3/4 oz.)
  • 1 Tbs. honey; more as needed
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup plain whole-milk yogurt (about 4 oz.); more as needed

Preparation

Put 1 cup each of the raspberries and blueberries, the beet, 2 Tbs. of the hemp seeds, the honey, lemon juice, yogurt, and 1/4 cup ice-cold water in a blender. Blend on low speed, and slowly increase to high speed; blend until smooth, about 30 seconds. add ice-cold water as needed to thin the smoothie to your desired thickness.

Divide the smoothie between individual serving bowls. Top each with the remaining raspberries, blueberries, and hemp seeds. Drizzle with honey, and serve immediately.

Servings: 1 to 2
