Red Velvet Smoothie

Red Velvet Smoothie

It’s hard to resist the delicious color (and flavor!) of red velvet cakes, red velvet cupcakes, red velvet sponge cakes…you get the picture.

But instead of throwing all your healthy eating goals out the window, blend up this gorgeous Red Velvet Smoothie instead.

This healthy version of a red velvet cake features some of the very same ingredients originally used to make this yummy treat so delicious.

This Chocolate Whey Shakeology smoothie recipe gets its gorgeous hue from a cooked beet (we promise you won’t taste it), and a dollop of mascarpone cheese gives it a hint of that cream cheese frosting flavor.

You could swap in part-skim ricotta or reduced-fat (2%) Greek yogurt if you prefer.
