Beets fall under the category of detoxifying vegetables. They add a splash of their gorgeous color along with their benefits to anything you cook them with. They are very versatile, yet often neglected vegetable. They can be used in both, savory and sweet ways. I had some beets sitting in the fridge for weeks now( and yes, they don't go bad quickly) and gave me a good reason to pair them with some almond milk I had in there, sitting too:). To this I added some ground cardamom powder made this gorgeous milk shake in minutes.
Almond milk-6 cups
Beets-2 medium, peeled
Cardamom powder-1 tsp
Coconut Sugar-as needed
1. Cut the beets into small pieces and boil them in water until they have softened up and the water has all dried up.
2. Turn off the stove and allow the beets to cool completely.
3. Blend together the almond milk, coconut sugar, cardamom powder and the beets until well blended and frothy.
4. Pour into serving glasses and enjoy!
