This delicious smoothie is easy to make with simple ingredients but is full of flavour and nutrition. Drink this when you need a boost for the immune system, it’s rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. Try it as is or reduce the liquid to make a healthy smoothie bowl topped with blueberries and granola.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 small chopped beet (100 g)
  • 1 cup chopped and frozen zucchini rounds (100 g)
  • 1 small peeled and frozen navel orange (100 g)
  • 1 small handful of fresh spinach or kale (25 g)
  • 1 cup almond milk or plant-based milk of choice
  • 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder of choice (30 g)
  • optional: half a frozen banana (60 g) for extra sweetness and creaminess

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and start blending on low. 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.
  2. 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 it’s thick and creamyh, scoop into a bowl and enjoy with a spoon.
