Floral Beets Cocktail

STTC VEGGIES.jpgSmall Things That Count.jpgSummer is fast approaching and ideas like early morning, casual beach runs have become a thing… yeah nothing casual about it. I’m currently walking like a cowboy heading to the saloon. So in order to recover from this weekends run and social hang outs, a Sunday market visit seemed in order to gather ingredients for the week ahead. Bougainvilleas in bloom were also a welcome distraction and cue mini photoshootSTTC 3STTC 4STTC 2With summer providing all the happy feels, what better way to cheers to it’s presence with an ice cold drink. This weekends market purchases inspired me to mix beets and strawberries together because a cocktail can be relatively healthy too. Right? right. Beetroot and strawberries together are an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory duo promoting a healthy immune system and providing you with a good kick of vitamin C.IMG_6593IMG_6604.jpgSmall Things That Count floral beets cocktail.jpgSTTC BEETS COCKTAIL.jpgNOTE: Making this drink was relatively simple and the waste from the juicer doesn’t need to go to waste. You can use it to make a healthy summer salad by taking the leftover pulp and stirring it into a large bowl of precooked spelt. Crumble some feta over the top, break apart rocket and drizzle with olive oil. Grind salt and pepper to your liking. Mix it all up and you’re ready to wow your guests with your waste free culinary skillsIMG_6637.jpgIMG_6638.jpg
