This week we were feeling a little festive (with the holidays just around the corner). We decided it was the perfect time for some red and green. We created two festive recipes -- this RED VELVET smoothie and a Roasted Broccoli side dish. Get the broccoli recipe by clicking here.
This smoothie is indulgent, delicious yet still very nutritious. Dates and beets are nutritional powerhouses and take center stage in this creamy, chocolatey drink. Order some online for home delivery here, or use this recipe to make the smoothie at home with organic ingredients available for home delivery from Wanigan.
RED VELVET SMOOTHIE:
- 1/2 cup beet juice
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/4 cup soaked cashews
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 2 softened dates
Blend until very smooth and enjoy!
