It’s difficult to pick a favorite from the Seven Dwarfs. Each one is endearing in his own way. Bashful is absolutely darling, especially when he blushes. He might be my favorite. Just about anything makes him blush, but especially when Snow White gives him a little kiss on the cheek. This berry beet smoothie is inspired by Bashful’s rosy cheeks. It’s made with red berries, an apple, and diced beets. It’s refreshing and tangy, with a slight sweetness from the beets, apple, and coconut water. And the color is quite stunning!

This berry beet smoothie is great for breakfast – the color alone makes it really fun for kids. But it’s also a great afternoon slurp-able snack. If you’re not a fan of coconut water, swap it out for 100% unsweetened apple juice. Not a beet fan? No worries – the flavor is very mild.
