Berry Beets Smoothie Bowl
Happy New Year friends!! I hope you all had a great end of year and wonderful holiday season celebrations. This Monday is probably the worst in the year given the festivities and relaxation that usually occurs in the last two weeks of the year. But we cannot start the year with that mindset and we must charge on and tackle the New Year with great spirits, convictions and healthy Berry Beets Smoothie Bowls (plus mucho coffee).
Right about now is when everyone breaks out the salad and green juices while ditching the desserts. Those resolutions of healthier eating and aspirations just make it hard to indulge in sweets without wanting to punch yourself in the face. That’s okay, I get it and we probably won’t be friends until next month when you are looking for Valentine’s Day desserts for your special someone. I’ll still be here 🙂
But I bring you these berry beets smoothie bowls today in the spirit of new beginnings and clean eating!
Smoothie bowls are becoming a thing (or are already a thing??) and I figured I should give them a try. Normally, I slurp up my smoothies on-the-go and see no reason why I should trade that for a bowl and spoon when I am always running out of the door. But, I tried this berry beet smoothie bowl on a lazy Sunday yesterday and I can see the benefits of relaxing with a spoon and scooping this goodness. If you feel inclined to try the smoothie bowl, give this combination a try! Filled with berries, beets, mint, chia seeds and of course coconut flakes, it’s delicious!! And you will not notice the beet (just putting that out for you beet-haters).
Happy New Year friends! Let’s drink up to a great year 🙂

Happy New Year, Z! This smoothie bowl is the perfect way to start the new year on a healthy note! I adore savory beets and love that you added them in here! Totally trying that next time! Looks so pretty!
Happy New Year Kelly!!! You need to try beets in sweets…it really brings out their sweetness if that makes sense lol!
I like smoothie bowls so much better than actual smoothies! BUT, I’ve yet to try a beet smoothie or smoothie bowl! Totally need this for breakfast tomorrow!
hahah I love regular smoothies just because they are easy for me to grab in the morning to go but I am loving the bowls as an alternative.
Happy New Year! This smoothie bowl sounds so nutritious, and the color is gorgeous! I’ve never used beets in anything other than savory, and I really need to branch out! 🙂
Happy New Year Marcie! I hope you branch out 😉
