Today’s recipe is a pineapple and beetroot smoothie.
Beetroots are a good source of plant iron. And in order to help our body to absorb iron we also need vitamin C, which is available in the smoothie, as beets are also a source of vitamin C, and so are pineapple and kale or spinach.
Pineapple gives this smoothie a refreshing sweet taste, so you don’t need to add in any sugar.
I love it because it’s quick and easy to make with ingredients that are easy to find. If you don’t have kale readily available where you live, use baby spinach instead.
2 cooked beetroots
1 cup pineapple
2 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp hemp seeds
1 1/2 cups natural yogurt
Handful baby spinach or kale
1/4 cup water
Blend until smooth and enjoy for breakfast or snack. If it’s too thick, please add more water as needed. Serves 2.
The mistake, I see many make when having smoothies is that are made just with fruit, which means they are high in sugar and even though fruits are a natural sugar, they may cause a sugar spike.
My smoothies are balanced as contain fibre, protein and healthy fats so leave you feeling satisfied.
