Smoothies are a fantastic way to enhance your diet. A quick and easy way to get a big hit of vitamins, minerals and just general goodness. Our Berry & Beets recipe is a bright way to start any day and tastes as good as it looks!

Ingredients

This will make one large smoothie or two smaller cup sized smoothies.

  • 90g Cooked Beetroot
  • 115g Frozen Raspberries
  • 200ml Fresh Orange Juice
  • 2 Tbsp of Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tsp of Honey

Method

Smoothies don’t really require much of a method as such, if you have a smoothie maker/ food processor then it is very very easy.

Make sure your beetroot is roughly diced before placing in the blender, top with your raspberries and then the yogurt and honey. This way it stops the yogurt or honey sticking to the bottom and not getting fully mixed in.

You want to blend until completely smooth, even the raspberry seeds. This will depend on the power of your blender, but somewhere around a minute should do it.

This is a smoothie definitely best served cold.


Inside the Ingredient

Beetroot: Not everyone’s cup of tea due to its distinct taste but beetroot is a nutritional giant! Beetroot is an excellent source of fibre, magnesium, potassium and folate. In fact it contains a little bit of many essential vitamins and minerals. Beetroot is also rich in nitrates, which has links to sporting performance benefits. Ok, you might not get the desired effect from just 90g of beetroot, but if you’re a fan of this root veg then there is no reason why you can’t crank up the content in this smoothie.

Raspberries: One of the worlds most popular berries and quite rightly so as Raspberries are packed full of nutritional benefits. High in fibre and boasting high amounts of antioxidant such as vitamin C, these little red berries and not little in nutritional value. With research linking them to improved skin health, strengthened immune systems and cancer prevention, raspberries are a must have in everyones diet.
