Blueberry-Beetroot Smoothie

imageedit__3587965626 (1).jpg

This is a colourful and tasty smoothie.  It has that veg edge, without losing its fruity qualities.  I can be given extra sweetening, though I have not found it necessary (unless the berries are tart to start with). It is a nice breakfast drink to set you up for the day.

Ingredients:

  • Banana 1
  • Beetroot 1/2 cooked/boiled (not pickled)
  • Blueberries 1/2 cup
  • Coconut Milk 300-330 ml
  • Stevia 1 tsp (optional)

Method:

Peel and freeze the banana 4 hours to a day in advance. When ready to prepare, break the banana into pieces and drop into a blender. Dice the beetroot into small pieces and preserve any juice.  Put these and the berries into the blender along with the sweetener (if used).  Add the milk and blend until a consistent smooth texture.  There is no need to add ice, as the frozen banana will chill and thicken the mix.  Serve in a large glass.

  1. This is really great and beets are so good for HBP. Maybe even better if banana iis frozen. Also, I’m a big proponent of turmeric….I make an anti-inflammatory paste and use it whenever possible, like smoothies. Thanks for another healthy recipe, God bless you and your wife.
