I bought some beets for this Beet Juice (which was very tasty btw) but the beets I bought came in a pack of 3 and I only needed 1/2 a beet for that juice. The other 1/2 of that one beet went into a juice that didn’t turn out right 😦 But I still had 2 whole beets left. Instead of just boiling the beets and eating them plain or in a salad, I kept my eyes open as I read blogs and surfed the internet hoping to find a new recipe to try for anything that had beets. Surprisingly I found one and it used beets for breakfast in oatmeal! I never would have thought of that idea so I tried it out.
This recipe was adapted from here:
- 1/4 cup boiled beets
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/4 cup gf rolled oats
- 1 handful blueberries
- sweetener of choice, to taste (I used agave)
- In a blender, puree beets and almond milk together until smooth.
- Pour into a mason jar and mix in chia seeds, oats, and blueberries.
- Put in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add sweetener and if desired top with additional blueberries.
I was surprised at how sweet this tasted! The beets and blueberries make a great combination. And the best part of this breakfast was the color – it was so bright! (Which my camera did not do too well a job of capturing.)
