Beet ‘Koolaid’ (recipe)

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 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! 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 :)

    I have a roasted beet and goat cheese salad that I posted on my blog that even my confirmed beet hating daughter liked. The beets come out tasting like candy.

    Lucky J to get to sample all your recipes!!!! First hand taste man. My favourite beet recipe is simply a few beets and a few carrots juiced (beet & carrot juice). I find it has a lovely taste and texture. Kind of creamy, in a juicy way.

      Oh I love that combo, my parents used to make that when I was a kid (they were juicing + back to eden devotees :lol: ) I’m gonna try out a raw beet ravioli recipe sometime this weekend. Hope it tastes as good as the photos look! And yeah, J completely relishes the fact that he can post to any post and tell people “i ate that” :lol:
