Beetroot Smoothie Anyone?

Updated: May 25

Beetroot is one of those versatile vegetable - it can be used in salads, smoothies or as a snack on its own. Today we're using it in a smoothie. Why beetroot? Well,

  • beetroot is highly nutritious and packed with essential vitamins and minerals

  • beetroot is rich in folate (vitamin b9 and folacin), a vitamin that is important in the red blood cell formation and for healthy call growth + function. All B vitamins help the body convert carbs into fuel which is used by the body for energy.

  • beetroot increases exercise performance

  • beetroot is rich in potassium (aids in lowering blood pressure), iron (necessary for the transportation of oxygen in red blood cells) and vitamin c (an antioxidant vital for immune function and skin health)


Ingredients:

  • ice cubes

  • frozen beetroot (cooked) (1/2 cup)

  • plain yoghurt (1/2 cup)

  • milk (1 cup)

  • blueberries (2 tablespoons)

  • Optional - honey if you prefer to have it sweet.

See video for more details. Enjoy :)
