Beetroot, Apple and Ginger Smoothie

Beetroot, apple & ginger smoothie. It kicks butt: 1/2 apple, 1/2 raw beetroot, 1 prune, 1cm piece of ginger, 30g spinach, 40g avocado, 2tsp flaxseed, fresh mint, ice, water. #rawfood #realfood #cleanse #cleanprogram #detox #breakfast #vegan #vitamix #vege

I invented this smoothie as part of the Clean Detox and it was good enough to deserve its own blog post. I love the combination of the fresh crisp apple and earthy beetroot. It also happens to be fiber-rich!

It’s not a very sweet smoothie, so add more prunes (or dates) if you’d like it sweeter.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 apple
  • 1/2 raw beetroot
  • 1 prune
  • 1cm piece of ginger
  • 30g spinach
  • 40g avocado
  • 2tsp flaxseed
  • a few fresh mint leaves
  • ~1 cup of ice

Add enough water to blend and blitz on high until silky smooth.
