I don’t usually publish smoothie recipes. I think most of us now know how to make a delicious, filling and nutritious smoothie. But there are some combinations that I like so much, that I feel I have to share them with you, such as this beet and raspberries smoothie. I don’t think I have ever made a smoothie more times than this one 😀
Today’s beet and raspberries smoothie also contains spinach, non-dairy (or dairy if you prefer) yogurt, plenty of ginger and banana. To sweeten it a bit I use lucuma powder, but by all means you can add whatever sweetener you want. It is so filling that many times I have eaten it for lunch this summer. 🙂 It is also very nice for breakfast.
I use the store-bought steamed beets, it is a convenience. Sometimes I have added oats, or flaxseed.
Put the ingredients in the blender in the order I mention, start at low speed and then increase it. If all your fruits are from the freezer, it turns out quite thick, almost like a nice cream. And you do not need to add ice afterwards. I always have bananas in the freezer for such occasions, and the raspberries I use are also frozen, from the supermarket.
