one-week!

i love trying new diets and one that i have done every now and again is a one-week vegetarian (or vegan) diet!

i began this one-week diet today. for breakfast, i had an amazing berry-beet smoothie!

here’s the recipe:

Photo1337ingredients -

  • 1/4-1/2 cup chopped beets
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup beet juice
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 2 tbsp. marshmallow cream (optional)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes

directions -

  • boil beets in liquid (you can buy canned, which already have juice!)
  • in blender or mixer, add vanilla soy milk (or other milk of your choice)
  • add in the blueberries (if you buy canned with juice, add some of the juice!)
  • add desired amount of beets + beet juice
  • add walnuts and marshmallow cream (if desired!)
  • blend well, pour into cup, and top coconut flakes!
  • you now have 2-4 servings of the smoothie based on the amount you serve!

this smoothie is good for the blood because of the beets and a great anti-oxidant because of the blueberries. the marshmallow cream is not healthy by any means, but was used to thicken a little more. you can use a substitute or not at all!
