Beets are an important food for overall health. They are rich in vitamin C, fibre, and minerals such as potassium and manganese. Many people avoid beets because of their strong taste and colour, but they are easy to sneak into your smoothies, stews, and soups. You can use shredded raw beets, pureed cooked beets, or beet crystals available at most health food stores. In the fall, I cook and puree my beets, then freeze in ice cube trays to use throughout the year. One cube is about 1 tbsp beet puree.
Blend thoroughly and enjoy!
