Vegan Red Velvet Beet Shake

Vibrant, sweet, and super-smooth, this better-for-you shake will make any lover’s heart skip a beet.

If you’re looking to shake things up this Valentine’s Day, look no further than Ashley Melillo’s dreamy Red Velvet Beet Shake. The one-step, six-ingredient recipe from Melillo’s cookbook, Blissful Basil, touts health-promoting properties without sacrificing indulgent flavors and convenience, making it an excellent dessert-for-breakfast option. We suggest you add two straws to this single serving shake, but it tastes so good, you might not want to share.
