RASPBERRY-BEET BASE BLENDMakes 2-3/4 cups
This blend is the most gorgeous color—and that rich pigment is where its great nutritioncomes from. And even if you think you don’t like beets, you’ve got to give this a try. Theraspberries take down some of the earthiness of the veggie; but because both have lots ofnatural sugars, you can sweeten many dishes with this blend without adding actualsweeteners (or at least use much less of them). I love to roast beets to enhance those naturalsugars, but if you don’t have time, it’s fine to sub in canned peeled-and-cooked beets, or theready-to-eat kind you can find in the fridge case in the produce aisle.

Ingredients:
2 medium beets4 cups frozen raspberriesFiltered waterPreheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the ends off the beets, peel, and cut them into chunks(around 1 inch). Place on a baking sheet and roast for about 35 minutes, until tender.Meanwhile, rinse the raspberries in cold water to thaw slightly; drain well. Puree theberries and beets with 2 to 3 tablespoons of filtered water until smooth, adding more wateras necessary.Nutrition facts (per 1⁄2 cup): 49 calories; 0 g fat; 23 mg sodium; 17 g carbs; 7 g fiber; 11 gsugar; 1 g proteinSNEAKY BLENDS by Missy Chase Lapine.
