Beet Koolaid

Beets. You either love them or hate them. This vibrant, juicy root vegetable seems to polarize people whenever I bring them up for discussion. As a kid I grew up drinking (and loving beet juice), but as an adult I find myself less and less able to enjoy it in cooked form. And, Jason? Well he just can’t stand them. Not even in juice form :( This recent concoction really hit the spot for me, and because of its status as a nutritional powerhouse [1] I think it probably helped to prevent the sniffles I was having from turning into an all-out cold. Poor J however could only manage a few sips before handing it back though :lol:

I am now hellbent on finding a recipe for beets that we can -both- enjoy. There’s got to be at least one out there right? If you have a recipe for beets that you think I have got to try feel free to let me know [2]! I’m game for anything at this point :) And, if you are a beet fan, give this vibrant health-packed beverage a try. I swear you’ll love it :)
