Beetroot And Berry Smoothie| Energy Boosting

 

As summer came, so did my morning rituals of energy boosting, nutrient packed, vibrant smoothies.  Making a quick smoothie with almonds provides me with the protein and omega3 my body craves.  As a first meal in the morning especially when taking it slow until you cook a more substantial meal, this fits the brief perfectly for me.

In this recipe, I have used frozen beetroot and fruits but go ahead and make it with fresh beetroot and berries. I just think the cold version works better with these flavours.

You can use shop bought frozen fruits and veg or what I often do is buy organic vegetables that I find on offer, I chop them and then portion them for smoothies and soups using these BPA FREE Freezer Bags. 

This way I save some money, and it means I always have something ready to go for the kids.  Smoothies are also a great way to get kids to eat some much-needed nutrient packed food without them knowing what’s really in there. My six old son is not an avocado fan at all, yet the other 3 loves it. So when making a big portion of smoothie with avocado, he doesn’t even know that it’s in there and he enjoys it too! What an achievement.
