This was my favorite pregnancy food, and it is a family favorite still. Freeze it and you have a healthy ice cream!
Start with 2 medium bulbs of beetroot (or use a can of preserved baby beets and drain it). Combine beets, pickles, a small dash of flaxseed oil (this adds a nutty hint and is also full of omega-3s), ice, and Greek yogurt in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy. Pour into cold glasses for a refreshing salad tasting drink. This is my power house drink - it has so many nutrients and energy in one healthy punch.
If it is a lot to drink all at once, you can refreeze and have it as ice cream later. Be warned: it is sharp on the tongue. But as I mentioned earlier, it was a pregnancy food I craved :)
Please try it and tell me if I'm just weird with my taste buds haha.
*Note: Sometimes I throw in a handful of ice but if the yogurt is frozen I don't bother... the frozen yogurt crystals give it the ice cream texture.
