Ingredients
  • 1 Medium beetroot bulb - roasted , peeled & roughly chopped *(see notes)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple - peeled , cored & chopped **(see notes)
  • 150 ml Apple juice
  • 5 g Ginger (about the size of a cherry tomato) – peeled and chopped
  • 10 g Chia seeds
  • 2 tsp plain yoghurt
  • 10 g spinach leaves
  • A Handful of ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Put the beetroot, apple, juice, chia seeds and ginger into the blender and blend on full speed for 1 minute
  2. Add the yoghurt, spinach and ice and blend again, on full speed, for a further minute. Blending two times really does help breakdown the beetroot to give a smoother drink
Recipe Notes

1. If, like me, you have a blender that is not of professional standard (e.g Vitamix) I recommend you roast the beetroot first to ensure a better texture in the smoothie - wrap in foil and cook for 50mins at 180ºC/350ºF/ GM 4. If you like a rougher textile go ahead and use the beetroot raw. 2. It’s up to you whether you peel the apple. Again, if you have a top quality blender you can get away without doing so.
