Words cannot express my adoration for this tastebud pleasing composition, I have it almost every day.

By incorporating my favourite fruits and veggies that are particularly high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals not to mention immune, skin and metabolism boosting properties this smoothie is an all around power-house!

Beets are thee supreme superfood. They can help lower blood pressure, boost your stamina, fight inflammation, detoxify the body and also contain powerful phytonutrients that have anti-cancer properties!


And I bet you thought it just tasted good. 😉

 

Brilliant Beet Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients:

(Measurements are approximate, alter to the size of your blender)

-1 cup of kale

-1/2 cup of (fresh or frozen) blueberries

-1/4 cup of (fresh or frozen) strawberries

-1/3 cup of chopped (fresh or frozen) pineapple

-236 mL (half a bottle) Blueprint Organic Beet, Carrot, Lemon, Apple, Ginger Juice or you can make your own.

-Optional Supplements Ideas: Flax/Chia Seed, Plant-based Protein Powder, Maca Powder

Instructions:

Throw everything in your blender (I use a Nutribullet) and blend, blend, blend. If you are using frozen fruit (which I personally prefer) you will need more liquid, and, will need to stir or shake the mixture a couple of times during the blending process. Once everything is smooth pour into a glass and drink it up! Or drink it straight from the blender…not that I’ve done that or anything…

Enjoy!
