  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Place beets on a baking sheet and toss with oil. Roast until tender, stirring once, about 35 minutes. Let beets cool. (Alternatively, you can steam the beets until fork tender.)
  2. Place cooked beets in a blender, along with milk, honey, orange zest, ginger, cinnamon, salt and coconut oil (if using). Blend until smooth. The mixture should be fairly thick, but add a bit more milk if needed to help with blending. Chill mixture until needed.
  3. To serve, place ¾ cup (175 mL) yogurt in a bowl and stir in about ¼ cup (50 mL) of the beet mixture. Top with ½ cup (125 mL) each granola and blueberries.
