Velvety Beetroot & Raspberry Smoothie

This Chocolate Raspberry Beet Smoothie is creamy, rich, and filling. It’s basically a healthy smoothie and is perfect for smoothie for breakfast or dessert.

If you haven’t tried beets and chocolate together, get ready to have your mind blown. These two ingredients are a match made in heaven, just as much chocolate and raspberries are meant to be paired. Therefore, I knew raspberries would go perfectly in this smoothie.  I added avocado for creaminess, and dates for sweetness.  Blend with your favorite nut milk, and you’ll have a velvety smoothie.

Velvety Beetroot & Raspberry Smoothie

I use raw beets in this recipe as we own a Vitamix.  If you don’t have a high-powered blender, I recommend cooking the beets first. I typically cook beets in a pot, filled with water over medium-high heat (bring water to boiling before adding beets) for about 15-minutes or until the beets are fork-tender.  If you prefer this route, let the beets cool completely before adding to the blender.

I prefer using frozen raspberries to make a colder smoothie. If you don’t have any, fresh berries will work, but you will need to add 1/2 cup ice.

Velvety Beetroot & Raspberry Smoothie

If you prefer a very rich chocolate flavor, add an extra tablespoon of cacao powder at a time.  Taste and decide what your taste buds want.

If you do not like beets because of their earthy undertones, you can skip it and go the raspberry chocolate smoothie route.  Either route you go, you will have a velvety, creamy, and tasty smoothie.

Hope you all enjoy this smoothie!
