Refreshing Beet & Berry Bowl

smoothie bowl

This season is neglected. Overlooked. Ignored. The season where summer turns to autumn- the time when you don’t know what to wear, because the weather can be so indecisive. The wind increasing its strenght by every passing day- and the vibrant leaves surrender to its strong grasp- falling down in utter submission.

Yet, for me- it’s the best time of the year. When the markets are filled with nordic, seasonal fruit and berries- the grocery bags filled with big, fresh, leafy greens. This is the time where we, in the Nordic countries, get the chance to savor and enjoy our local vegetables- and preserve them to be able to enjoy them througout winter.

This Beet & Berry Bowl is a delicious, little treat for both young and old- a celebration to the wonderful season we are in right now. The taste of autumn is clear and crisp with a hint of beet root hidden in the creamy mix of avocado and raspberries. Such a celebration of autumn deserves a point of attention. So much, that I’ve decided to add this to a Norwegian monthly food blogger challenge, started by Green Bonanza. This month challenge is beetroot.

I am happy to anounce that I have encountered a new, exciting blog- full of nutritional information from a scientific point of view. Helen, the owner and writer of the blog ‘Wellbeing Secrets” is a huge nutrition geek, just as myself- which is why I would like to share a link to her article about the benefits of avocados.

What is your favorite way to enjoy beetroot and/ or avocado?

    This is a really good recipe, nice way to sneak some beets into my children’s diet. My girls will like it just for the colour!

      Yeah, I would think it’s a great way for kids to eat some vegetables too- as this is very smooth and neutral in taste! 🙂
