Berry Beet Smoothie

berry beet smoothie

I have sung the humble beetroot’s praises for it’s ability to increase athletic performance in previous posts, so what better vegetable to use in a post-run smoothie! Mix it with some ingredients rich in protein such as hemp powder and chia seeds, and you have an excellent powerhouse smoothie.

  • 1 Cooked Beetroot (vacuum packed beetroot is quick and easy, make sure it is not in vinegar)
  • 100g Mixed Frozen Berries
  • ½ Banana
  • 2 scoops/ 30g  Hemp Protein Powder (I use Good Hemp Nutrition as it is not bitter AND the hemp is grown in my home county of Devon)
  • 1 tsp Chia seeds
  • 1 tsp Wheatgrass Powder
  • 1 tsp Bee Pollen
  • 350ml Water or choice of plant milk

Garnish suggestions

  • Bee pollen
  • Flaked Almonds
  • Dessicated/ Flaked Coconut
  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with whatever toppings you fancy.
