My Beetroot Smoothie
Serves: 3 Prep time 2 minutes Blending time 3 minutes 64.6 kcal {79.9 kcal}
I love beetroot salad and pickled so I was looking for what would taste nice in a
beetroot smoothie, without too much of a Rooty flavour, and here is my solution.
Yesterday I made the “Red Fruity” smoothie, but this “Beetroot Smoothie” is even deeper red.
You can leave out the garlic, and if you can find it use the Cherry Vinegar,
that really improves the taste.

      (or lukewarm green tea)
1 tbsp chopped fresh Ginger (10g)
½ lemon (15g)
2-3 precooked Beetroots (180-200g)
2 small Shallots (40-50g), roughly cut
3 Radishes (15g), head & tail removed
1 small Garlic clove (5g) {Optional}
1 tsp Womersley Cherry Vinegar
Pinch salt and pepper
Add 1 handful frozen cherries (100g) {Optional}
  • Place all ingredients in the blender.
  • Blend for 2-3 minutes until smooth and no more ice lumps
  • Split evenly between 2 glasses.
  • The smoothies will keep in fridge for max 2 days.
  • Shake well before usage.
  • Serve and enjoy you drink.       Top Top
