Healthy Red Beet Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

Well, the summer of smoothies continues, and today I am happy to share my healthy red beet strawberry smoothie recipe with you.

By all means and I mean this for a fact, this red beet strawberry smoothie recipe is the best. I have made and shared it repeatedly and each time people loved it, I hope you will also find it enjoyable and make it your summer special.

 

How to make my healthy red beet strawberry smoothie:

You will need:

Fresh Beetroot is a must have for this smoothie, I always love using raw beetroot. You are welcome to use the frozen beets if you desire, but I prefer fresh red beets anytime any day for this recipe. Beets are full of vitamins, mineral and a tiny amount of fat. Beets are known to lower blood pressure as well improve your stamina among many things.

Strawberry: At the same time I love adding strawberry to this recipe because of its nutritional value and color. I feel that strawberry blends well with beets. Also, strawberry is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and other minerals.

Yogurt: I love the richness and creaminess of yogurt in this smoothie. Mainly I prefer to use low-fat yogurt. Yogurt provides high-quality protein to the body. It is an excellent source of calcium, vitamins, some carbohydrate and lots of water.

Banana: In general banana is very filling, and it has a good amount of carbohydrate, some vitamins, and minerals. Some benefits of banana include energy boosting; it can also improve your digestive system. Banana is very affordable yet very nutritious.

Orange juice: You can squeeze your orange or you can use a store bought juice for this recipe; both works just fine. Orange contains vitamin c plus other minerals. Orange can protect your body by boosting your immunity.

    1. Hello Cristina,
      Same here, I don’t generally enjoy the beetroot taste until I tried it in a smoothie this way. And you are very right the strawberry and banana further helps the flavor.
      Surely, a smart way to get the beets we need.

      Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!☺️
