Beetroot and Berry Smoothie

007

Do you know that feeling when, you just have to?  Well, I just had to do a beetroot smoothie. I added some fruits and if I did not tell you there was beetroot in this smoothie, you wouldn’t even know.  My best is making a smoothie, and sending it off with the hubby to work not telling him what is in my concoction, then during the day I usually get a call or message (we are big on whatsapp messaging here) saying what a great ‘xyz’ smoothie it was.  Great compliment, but he usually doesn’t know the key veggie ingredient I had tossed in. Actually, is that a compliment or an insult to my concoction? Hmmmm whatever, oh well, it is healthy and that is all that matters :-).

Beetroot and Berry Smoothie

Preparation time:  5 minutes

Ingredients:

100 grams raw beetroot

100 grams fresh strawberries

100 grams fresh blueberries

100 grams milk of your choice

Instructions:

Blend all the above ingredients in a blender until smooth.  This will take approximately 2-3 minutes.

NB*  Feel free to also roast your beetroot till it softens slightly if you are afraid your blender might struggle.  It works just as well, just don’t go and salt and pepper it 🙂

  1. Mmm I like the idea of putting beetroot in. Haven’t tried that yet. Thanks for sharing. I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to have a look? Wishing you a sunny afternoon, Sam 🙂
