Cherry Pineapple Smoothie Bowl featuring Mountain Rose Herbs organic beet powder

Cherry Beet Smoothie Bowl

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 8.22.2017 | COMMENTS: 3


Beets in any form are one of my fun smoothie ingredients, especially in this Cherry Beet Smoothie Bowl. Not only is their color stunning, but they are loaded with health benefits and sweetness (more on that below).

Yet I know some one of you are reading this and going “no thank you!” Beets can feel gritty and taste dirty— which is a hard one to down in the name of health.

Yet there’s a great way to get the antioxidant power without the dirt: beet root powder.

My latest obsession is organic beet root powder from Mountain Rose Herbs. We’ve partnered with them to bring you this tasty, ruby-hued Cherry Pineapple Smoothie Bowl featuring their fabulous beet powder.

Beets: Nutritional Powerhouse

As I mentioned, beets are nutrition powerhouses. They are naturally sweet—one of the very sweetest of veggies—and are loaded with antioxidants and dietary fiber. They are also a great source of calcium, iron, potassium, folate, manganese, and nitrates. Fun fact: Consuming beets before and after a workout can help improve performance and recovery.

Not a fan of fresh beets? Try beet root powder - all the health benefits packed into one teaspoon. This Cherry Pineapple Smoothie Bowl is rawkin' with nutrients AND flavor. | www.simplegreensmoothies.com


What’s crazy, though, is that Mountain Rose Herbs found a way to pack all that nutrition from the fresh beets into a dried beet root powder. One teaspoon of the powder is equal to one fresh beet. Pretty cool, right? Even better, if you’re not a big fan of the flavor of beets, this powder is perfect for you! It has a pleasant, earthy smell, but is virtually flavorless. And can we please talk about the gorgeous color?! (Bonus: I totally use Mountain Rose Herbs beet powder as a natural red food coloring, too. Health benefits and stunning color. Can’t “beet” that! Ha!)

Cherry Beet Smoothie Bowl Recipe

And now for that Cherry Beet Smoothie Bowl Recipe! I still love smoothie bowls. Still. It forces me to slow down – I’m a smoothie chugger – and enjoy what I’ve blended. Plus it’s gorgeous, naturally sweet, and totally healthy!

For best results, use as much frozen fruit as you can, except for the orange. That functions as the liquid in this recipe. We use less liquid in smoothie bowls so the blend is thicker—more like soft-serve sorbet. That also means the flavors are more concentrated. Prepare to LOVE this rawkin’ red smoothie bowl!

Another word about Mountain Rose Herbs. I LOVE their products. They carry just about everything you can imagine on their website: organic dried herbs and spices, teas, candles, aromatherapy and essential oils,  bath and body products, home goods, and everything in between.

I love that Mountain Rose Herbs is dedicated to sustainability, organic practices, and being good to the earth in addition to supporting Fair Trade. I’m a customer for life. 🙂
