Red Velvet Smoothie

Honestly, I even surprised myself with this one!  I was making a beetroot salad and had half a raw beetroot left over so decided to throw it in a blender and make it into a smoothie!

There are loads of cake recipes which have chocolate and beetroot and they work well, so why not try the same in a smoothie. This is so tasty and toddler approved too, my little boy loved it.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 raw beetroot chopped or pre cooked
  • 1 small or 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp cocoa (I love Equagold Dutch cocoa)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries
  • 1 cup milk

 

How to make:

Blitz together (I used my amazing Kenwood food processor) and enjoy!!

 

Tip:

Next time I think I might add a slice of avocado and make it even more creamy 😉
