Beetroots are full of nutritional value and have antioxidant properties. They have vibrant colour and make excellent smoothie. This healthy refreshing smoothie is delicious, and packed with instant energy.

Total prep time : 15 minutes, Serves : 2 tall glass, Author : Gloria


1 big sized beetroot

½ cup chilled milk of your choice

2 ½ tbsp vanilla icecream

1 tsp honey

1 tbsp unrefined sugar

1/4 tsp cardamom or cinnamon or a pinch of grated nutmeg

ice cubes / crushed ice


Boil beetroot in a pressure cooker with enough water for 10 minutes. Remove, cool and peel the skin off.

In a blender, add all ingredients along with the beetroot and whiz until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and serve immediately.

My observations/notes :

  • can use soy milk or almond milk

  • can combine apple, carrot or strawberry with beetroot to make this smoothie.
