Smooth Operator

Today Ed used our new Vitamix to make his very first smoothie - Liquid Gold.

Made with golden beets, grapes, lemon juice, and pumpkin seeds, the flavor was, umm, interesting.

Honestly?  It tasted like dirt.

But with a slight beet flavor.

I don't know what I expected.  Beets are root vegetables.  They grow up surrounded by dirt.  They're earthy.

On the second sip, it wasn't so bad. I'd say it's an acquired taste.  It could have used a little more sweetness for my liking, but you'd probably get used to it after a while.  

You can get the recipe here if you're interested in trying it.

Tomorrow a Cucumber Cranberry smoothie is on the menu.

I feel healthier just typing that sentence.
