Beet Blackberry Smoothie
Doesn’t that smoothie have an absolutely beautiful color? The beet and blackberries blended into a beautiful deep purple and I just love it 🙂 You have heard me say before that I just recently started “eating” beets, I am not daring enough to “cook” with them yet, but I have been doing pretty good with them in my smoothies. Beets are loaded with vitamins!
I live in Florida and it’s HOT here. We are talking upper 80s by 9 a.m. I have a lot going on today and I really needed to get my exercise in, so I decided I would go for my run after the kids got on the bus. I ran 3.5 miles and I think I sweated out about a million calories 😉 As soon as I walked through the door I opened the refrigerator to grab a coconut water. Of course I didn’t have any cold. Then I went to grab the gallon of DairyPure Milk, I didn’t have breakfast and my body was craving vitamins and something cold. But I opted for water. Why did I put the milk back? Well, for some reason I view milk as the drink I have at dinner. Like something weird would happen to me if I had it at a different time of the day. Do you ever do that? I’m weird I know. Then as I sat there debating why I put the milk back, I decided I was going to break my mold! I was going to get out the DairyPure and enjoy it.
In fact, I used it in my smoothie 🙂
Milk just isn’t for cereal and dinner…or to go with cake 😉 ! DairyPure milks and creams, are for delicious recipes, fun milk occasions and more! Even in your smoothies! Speaking of smoothies, let me give you my recipe, you are going to love it!
