Popping in so quick today! The First Mess Cookbook is finally out, and while I know that you may be experiencing some book news-related fatigue, I’m just happy that it’s making its way out to so many of you. I gush about how grateful I am for your support as often as I can, but I can always gush a little more: Thank you so much. I love seeing what you’re making, so please feel free to tag me on Instagram and use our official hashtag too: #FirstMessCookbook.
I’m sharing the Hot Pink Beet Protein Smoothie because 1) it’s hot pink, and 2) I actually drink this all the time! I love that it isn’t too sweet and that it capitalizes on a cellar-hardy vegetable like beets. Throw in some citrus, almond butter, frozen summer berries, a sprinkle of chia, and you’ve got an energizing blend that’s really fun to look at. I know that a beet smoothie seems a little offbeat at first glance, but that earthy sweetness is so right with the tart and rich components here. Take a look over here for more smoothie inspiration.
