Rich Red Velvet Smoothie

by | Updated: May 16th, 2018

You may not know (because it’s chemically colored) that the richness you taste in red velvet cake is actually cocoa powder. To create that same depth and delight in a drinkable form, you’ll need the antioxidant powers of cacao and the whole-food wonders of chocolate-flavored Vega One. In case you were wondering, you won’t find any fake dyes in this smoothie blend. The vibrant hue comes from chopped beets and fresh strawberries – nature’s greatest food coloring!
