Taking a cue from Kathy Smart’s veggie smoothie with beet, carrot, ginger, apple and orange, I found the beet beat all. I used too large of beet or other people like beet better? I tried adding more dried ginger, adding up to about 2 teaspoons, which overdid the heat but still tasted like beet. Pureed some more.
I tried diluting with a cup of rice milk. No go. Another 2 oranges added in. A tablespoon of lingonberry jam. 2 teaspoons of maraschino cherry syrup. Still tastes like pure beet with an afterburn of ginger.
It has so much ginger and hot pepper that it burns like vodka but looks and tastes like beets. A Russian dream? If it still seems like a big amount to drink, maybe I’ll reduce it down to a beet chutney.
