Ok, so here's the thing about beets. Most people think they taste like dirt. I, however, love them. My taste buds must be very sophisticated....or "earthy".
When you steam and freeze them--they're incredible in smoothies! Not to mention that color....Pinkalicious (as my daughter would say)! The only big drawback in that color is the outcome. Literally. It can turn your poo red--so remember that when you wake up the next morning thinking you suddenly need a trip to the ER...
Beets are one of the richest sources of Glutamine--assisting in the maintenance of your intestinal tract. Very rich in fiber, and folic acid, their antioxidants can be absorbed by eating raw, steamed, pureed, pickled, etc.
I usually microwave my frozen ingredients for about 20 seconds to soften them up just slightly--this helps to make the texture perfectly creamy! Enjoy, friends :)
