A refreshing and nutritious treat with the added benefits of vitamins and minerals from beets.
cup cooked beet, about 1 medium
cup raspberries, frozen or fresh
cup apple juice
tsp vanilla extract
Optional: vanilla flavored Greek yogurt
If not using pre-cooked beets, cook the beet until tender, about 30-45 minutes. Cool down completely.
Puree all the ingredients together in a blender or food processor. Adjust the sweetness and texture by adding more honey or apple juice.
Strain out the raspberry seeds for a smoother texture, or leave them in for a bit of a crunch.
Pour the mixture into a small Ziploc® container for a single serve ice cream treat, or make popsicles using a mold. Adding a swirl or a band of vanilla flavored Greek yogurt provides a nice balance to the berrylicious ice cream.
