I can hardly believe that today is the first day of summer. The year is almost half over!!!

It’s spurring a bit of a mid-year crisis goals reassessment for me. I know that I am working hard but I don’t know if I am really carpe diem-ing. So I am looking forward to using the summer to enjoy life and get out ahead of the game.

Waking up with this breakfast helps. It’s a little self-care moment in a bowl. You know you’re serious about getting your veg in when you literally can’t make a meal without them. Beets are pretty much guaranteed to make a beautiful (instagrammable!) meal and I love the earthiness they lend to this treat. The raspberries don’t hide the flavour of the beets…but if you want to, you can add a bit of maple syrup to this to smooth out the flavour.

Wake up right. Feel like one million dollars. And enjoy every luscious moment.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pre-cooked beet , (I used Love Beets)
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana (2-3 in piece)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax

  • 1/2 cup plain almond milk or soy milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, (optional)

Equipment

  • Blender

Instructions 

  • Blend ingredients well. Mixture should be thick. Pour into chilled bowls and serve immediately, topped with your favourites: try edible flowers, slivered almonds, chia seeds, coconut flakes, pomegranate seeds and fresh golden berries (cape gooseberries).

Notes

Protein Powder - I prefer Sunwarrior Classic Rice or Vega Sport Performance Protein. If eating this for breakfast and not a snack, go for the protein!
