Sue Joy Beetroot Smoothie

By Sue Joy

This refreshing smoothie is packed full of so many nutrients. Beetroot has health promoting antioxidants and nutrients such as vitamin C, beta-carotene, betaine, folate, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, potassium and iron. I created this smoothie after researching the benefits beetroot has on our heart health and lowering high blood pressure.

This recipe will serve two people and takes about 5 minutes to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 or 1 small raw beetroot, peeled & roughly chopped 
  • 2 Lge celery stick(s), roughly chopped 
  • 1 med apple(s), core removed and roughly chopped 
  • 2 – 3cm piece ginger, (if you aren’t a ginger fan you can leave out) 
  • 2 Tbsp almonds 
  • 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds 
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds (pepitas) 
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • 350ml chilled coconut water (unsweetened), or filtered water 
  • 1 cup ice cubes 

Directions

Add all of the above ingredients in order, to a high-speed blender.

Blend at half-speed for a few seconds to break up the vegetables, then increase to maximum-speed until you reach a smooth consistency. Add extra liquid if needed.

Pour into glasses and enjoy!
