Ingredients for Red Velvet Smoothie

Old fashioned Oats – Oats are naturally gluten-free and rich in fiber and protein. Making a complete breakfast in just one glass.

Beets – Rich in iron and fiber. Plus, it brings the perfect red color to this smoothie naturally without any food color.

Wildly Organic Nondairy Creamer – My favorite dairy substitute that comes in powder form. This way it’s easy to store and has a longer shelf life. Also, since it is in a powder form you either add water to it or add dairy free milk to it to get an even richer taste.

Wildly Organic Chia Seeds – A great source of omega fats, protein, and fiber.

Wildly Organic Cocoa Powder – I used the non-fermented version, but you can use fermented cocoa powder as well. Enjoy it as hot cocoa or blend it into a smoothie, like this one!

Banana – You can use frozen or fresh, both work well in this recipe. I used semi ripe bananas but you use over ripe bananas you may want to lower the quantity of dates since over ripe bananas can be very sweet.

Dates – I added dates to this recipe for extra fiber and sweetness. Dates are rich in nutrients and are natural sweetener making this smoothie even healthier.

Hemp Seeds – High in protein and fiber. Even though its optional but it definitely adds more fiber and protein to bulk up the recipe.

So, now simply blend the smoothie soon and enjoy this delicious and refreshing beverage with your loved ones.
