Raspberry & Beet Breakfast Smoothie


Smoothies are so convenient for people who are rushed in the morning and are a great solution for people who can't stomach the idea of breakfast (that one boggles my mind - I LOVE breakfast!). Furthermore, they are an excellent way for people to increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables in their diet. This smoothie is full of flavour and nutrients, and its pretty stunning to look at! 

Ingredients

1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 frozen banana
1 small beet (canned is convenient, but fresh works great, you just need to steam and cool before adding)
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1 cup Greek vanilla yogurt (Chobani 0% fat is awesome)
1 tsp honey (optional) 

*You can use fresh raspberries and banana, but you'll need to add some ice. Using frozen allows you to avoid adding ice and watering down the flavour

Directions

1. Place all ingredients in a blender or Magic Bullet
2. Drink!
