A silky smooth treat filled with ingredients that are clean and satisfying. This vegan version of my Beautifying Beet Smoothie is guaranteed to leave you feeling beautiful from the inside out!
That’s right folks, the pink lady is BACK!
I couldn’t help myself last week while I was sipping on glass after glass of princess nectar and practicing my newfound love for winter exhibitionism…I just had to see how it would taste with a little vegan spin on it!
Oh ok, you got me…I totally ran out of cottage cheese! But I DID have a package of my favorite extra firm tofu from Trader Joe’s that was only two MONTHS out of date!
See, I’m getting better! 😉
I also decided to mix things up a bit and added some grated ginger which I thought gave it a little “ohhh, what IS that?” flavor. Yet another reason fresh ginger reigns supreme!
Vegan Beautifying Beet Smoothie
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Cook Time: N/A
Keywords: blender breakfast beverage snack dairy-free high protein vegan vegetarian beets #strangebutgood
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1/2 cup extra-firm tofu
- 1/2 medium raw beet, cut into smaller pieces
- 1 handful raw beet greens/stems
- 1/4 medium avocado
- 1/2 medium banana (optional)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 Tablespoon maple syrup (or other preferred sweetener)
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 1/2 teaspoon carob powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4-5 ice cubes
- Hemp seeds for garnish
1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until smooth.
2. Transfer to wine glass (because you’re a VEGAN princess) and top with crunchy hemp seeds!
The thickness and creaminess of this version is just as great as the original and it still only takes MINUTES to make…unless you forget the avocado on the first go-around, spill the carob powder, and then have to pick out a piece of spoon from the bottom of the blender…
Note to self: Sleep depravity is all fun and games until someone loses a spoon!
I wonder if plastic is vegan?? 😉
And because I simply can’t ignore my ADD tendencies…
