I don't like beets but we keep getting them in our CSA. They're really good for you and have detoxing abilities, if a bunch of websites are to be believed.. So, now that I am able to use my kitchen and don't have the excuse of cream colored, easily stained tile in the bathroom, I had to use some of them. A couple nights ago I made a raw beet salad that was pretty good and yesterday I added a 1/4 of a beet to my smoothie and I couldn't taste it.
Day 16 -- Beetiful green smoothie
1 cup coconut milk
handful fresh raspberries
3 big chard leaves
1 cup frozen mixed berries
dash of cardamom
I'm beginning to think that the dates and a little spice are the secret to successful smoothies. They offset a lot of the "green" flavor. If you have any other techniques for yummifying green smoothies, please post them in the comments.
