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.This 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 So, 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.
So with all these nutritive properties, this by far tops my Valentines Breakfast menu (and that color)… it’s a day to love and cherish each other, so why not start it the healthiest way we can.Stay tuned for more recipes to follow.
