BB smoothie | raw vegan P GF DF RSF

I bought some beautiful fat beetroots at our local growers markets (Orange Grove in Lilyfield) on Saturday & instantly had grand plans on how to use them. I roasted one last night in a bit of olive oil & ate them simply on a bed of freshly picked watercress & rocket from my Mum’s community garden. 

Next up on the list was a beetroot smoothie. I haven’t made one in ages but was confident that my sons would like it due to the colour. This smoothie is so simple & a really delicious start to the day.

INGREDIENTS

2 bananas, frozen overnight

1 medium beetroot, peeled & cut into quarters

1 tablespoon chia seeds, soaked in 1/4 cup coconut water 

1 teaspoon vanilla powder (I recommend Heilala brand – it has nothing added & a delicious flavour)

Throw all ingredients into your blender (I use the Omniblend) & blend until you get the desired consistency.
