Put all ingredients in a blender and blend away! No need to steam or roast the beet beforehand.
Optional additions: 1/2 a frozen banana, 1 tsp flax seeds, a few almonds, protein powder
Chef’s notes: This smoothie tastes like a dessert but is healthy enough for breakfast! The beets give it a great colour and an earthy sweetness. The optional ingredients give it a little more staying power, but are, of course, optional!
