Karen here. This is my go to smoothie. It is fruity, creamy, nutty and so delicious. It is in my opinion, the grown up on-the-go twist to the classic pb&j. Well balanced, not too sweet and very forgiving. You can easily sub-in different berries and nut butters to achieve equally delicious results.
Beetroots are an amazing superfood that adds sweetness and a vibrant pink colour to your recipes. If you want to learn more about the health benefits of beetroots, we have a write up on 9 reasons to start consuming beetroots.
There are two main reasons why I add beet to my smoothies. First, beets are amazing for after work out repair. They help reduce inflammation speeding up recovery and decreasing soreness. Beets are also an excellent source of iron and vitamin c which helps absorb iron.
Hope you love this one as much as I do. Reduce the liquid in the recipe to try it as a beet smoothie bowl. Covering your smoothie bowl in chopped nuts, berries and coconut is mandatory.
