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