Is anyone else totally stoked that watermelon is finally in season and was in today’s Bountiful Baskets? Today’s basket contained personal watermelon, strawberries, bananas, apples, mango, pineapple, tomatoes, green beans, broccoli, broccoflower, and beets.
I have to be completely honest – I have never cooked with beets and I am not sure if I’ve ever eaten them. I think I have because I can imagine what they taste like, but I really don’t know when or how they were prepared. I have heard that they are the bomb in green smoothies and I know Heather has made a chocolate cake with beets. Green Smoothie Girl has a chocolate cake with beets in it worth trying! She also has a Hot Pink Breakfast Smoothie with beets in it. My daughter would drink it just because it’s pink!
Other recipes you’d be crazy not to try this week:
If your kids are anything like mine, they will appreciate this next recipe because they can’t tolerate the texture of broccoli or cauliflower.
I’m making this for my kiddos today, but I’m so NOT putting in all that sugar! We’ll sweeten it with agave or stevia if needed.
