Ingredients

1 beetroots 130 g
1 bananas, small, ripe, chunks 150 g
1/2 cup blueberries, or other berries 60 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.

Method

  1. Prepare the beets: boil or steam them about 25-30 min. Let the beets cool down a few minutes, then peel them and dice into 1,5 cm pieces. Chill the beets completely before making the smoothie.
  2. Place the all the ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  3. Process on the highest speed until a well-blended purée forms, about 1-2 min, stopping to scrape down the sides of the container once or twice. Serve.

Remarks

Beetroots may be cooked in advance. If a very high speed blender is used (such as Vitamix), raw beetroots may be used.
