So, I finally gave in to a bit of beetroot.
To be honest, I wasn’t a big fan of the root vegetable. It is messy to work with, every little stain stays forever! I don’t like eating it on its own and a great way to have more of this is to include it in my smoothies.
But after testing a variety of ingredients in this smoothie, the flavour and the colour of this little down-to-earth root veggie is amazing is to work with and is worth every little bit of hassle! Plus, it is very wholesome and really good for you!
I do think you need to add in something extra to give it a bit of flavour and sweetness. I like pairing it with berries, and a dash of honey for a bit of sweetness. Deliciously sweet, beautiful to look at, and great as a substitute in place of caffeine in the morning.
Ingredients: (for two to share or one large smoothie for yourself!)
5 strawberries (stem removed)
A handful of blueberries
A cup of semi-skimmed or skimmed milk (you can also replace apple or orange juice with this)
A dollop of honey
A dash of lemon juice
Put it all in the blender and watch the smoothie turn into a bright magenta pink, quite pretty! Enjoy!
