Beetroot & Cacao Smoothie

January 2, 2017

Oh hello 2017! January is the month when most of us decide to set new goals for the year ahead, feel more conscious to eat healthier and set aside time to become more active. A few of my aims for this year is to experiment with more flavours, ingredients and try out new things in the kitchen. So, my first recipe of 2017 is this delicious beetroot and raw cacao smoothie bowl…

It might seem like a slightly strange flavour combination, but trust me, it tastes awesome! The beetroot adds an earthy tone to the smoothie but when blended with the intense flavour of raw cacao it creates a luxurious velvety taste that’s crammed full of goodness. You can add a little more liquid if you prefer to drink it from a glass otherwise the texture will be more like soft scoop ice-cream, yum!

You will need:

  • 100g of cooked beetroot (in natural juices) – I used the vacuum packed beetroot
  • 1-2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 heaped tsp of raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp of oats
  • 1 tbsp of greek yoghurt
  • cup of milk (I used coconut)

How to make:

Simply add all of the ingredients to a blender and whizz together until smooth and creamy. Pour into a bowl (or glass) and top with your favourite fruit, granola and nuts. Enjoy!
