Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond milk or plant-based milk of choice, plus more as needed to adjust consistency (250 mL)
  • 1 small chopped beet, washed and root removedĀ  (100 g)
  • 1 cup chopped and frozen zucchini rounds (100 g)
  • 1 peeled and frozen navel orange (100 g)
  • 1 cup or handful fresh spinach or kale (25 g)
  • 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder (30 g)
  • 1/2 a frozen banana, optional, for sweetening (or 34 small pitted dates)

Instructions

  1. Add the milk to a high-speed blender then add the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Start blending on low then slowly increase speed, continuing to blend until it’s completely smooth and creamy. You may need to stop a few times to mix it. Give it a bit longer than you think it needs to allow all the flavours to mix together and the beet to completely mix in. If needed, add a little additional milk to adjust the thickness to your liking.
  3. Pour into a glass and enjoy.

Notes

  • This smoothie does have a hint of beet flavour to it so if you’re not a big fan of beets, I’d suggest adding half a frozen banana for extra sweetness.
  • To make this as a smoothie bowl, add the optional frozen banana, reduce the liquid slightly then blend on low until its thick and creamy, scoop into a bowl and enjoy with a spoon.
