Beet Blueberry Ginger Smoothie Bowl (Valentines Breakfast)

Beet Blueberry Ginger Smoothie Bowl  (Valentines Breakfast) ~ Decadent and an almost dessert-like smoothie that’s filled with heart-healthy nutrients for that someone special in your life. Makes a great Valentines Breakfast or Enjoy any other day.best-blueberry-smoothie-recipeThis Gorgeous Gorgeous ‘Beet Blueberry Ginger Smoothie Bowl (Valentines Breakfast)’ is definitely on our Valentines Breakfast menu along with few other yums. And if you feel the color is too pink for you, don’t be scared, I’ll talk about tons of ways to bring it to your liking – I promise. ‘Valentines Breakfast’ is a huge thing at our place as every other day we hardly get time to sit or even talk to each other in the morning. Do come valentines n we actually look forward to sitting together for a scrumptious breakfast filled with stuff that he n I like …. cause trust me, our tastes are polar opposite! He likes spicy, I like sweet….he love fried food n I can pass it on, he loves potatoes n I can chew on it forever (unless it’s French fries)….so you got the idea, Right😉 beet-blueberry-smoothie-recipeSo, Valentines, we meet in the middle just like this smoothie it has beets for the pink color (that I love) n blueberries for him. I also grated some dark chocolate that he loves n Pistachio that I love …. so it’s a happy place for us (maybe I’ll tone the pink down a little for him).

Now, coming to the health benefits of  our Smoothie Ingredients:
Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains which provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. But betalains undergo very steady loss as the cooking time is increased. Hence I decided to eat it raw or cooked for less than 15-20mins. (Read more about Beet benefits)

Blueberry is filled with antioxidants which are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. So great for our heart and cognitive behavior. (Read more about Blueberry benefits)

Ginger anti-inflammatory and bone health.

    It looks incredible – what a color!
    I’m not a big fan of beets in smoothie but maybe the mix with blueberry is the solution?!
    Will try!

    That bowl is beautiful. I really don’t know if I could get past the beet. I’m not a beet fan at all, but maybe it would be okay in this.

    How deliciously lovely! I grew up eating beets in a lot of things but, did not have the joy of beet soup (beet liquefied into anything really_) until I made it as an adult. Great concoction you made; everything compliments each other nicely and the ginger gives it a tiny bit of heat.

    I love how it’s pink! So creative to use beets, I think beets are underrated. What a great healthy alternative, I don’t think I would even know how to begin to put it in a smoothy. I just may give it a try
    Thanks for sharing!

    I love beets and the earthy flavor they lend to a smoothie, so I would definitely eat this bowl of yummy. My honeybunch…would sneer at it…but since he loves me, I’ll forgive him and eat his share, hahaha.
