Beetroot adds fantastic nutrients to your diet, as It is a good source of Vitamin C, Iron and Magnesium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Folate, Potassium and Manganese. Beetroot is also known to support detoxification of the liver, thanks to betacyanin, an antioxidant that also gives the beet its bright red colour.
Beet, together with apple and carrot is a classic combination for the ABC juice. This drink is a variation to the ABC juice, still using apple and beet, but adding some banana and ginger, and using Carmien Rooibos Honeybush & Hoodia tea for its digestive, and appetite suppressing benefits. The flavour of this particular tea goes well with the beet, making it the perfect liquid for this smoothie.
Adding beet to your smoothie is only recommended when you have a high performance blender like the OmniBlend, as it is a tough ingredient to blend. With the OmniBlend you can add beet to your smoothie, as the 3hp motor will easily blend it smooth, extracting all nutritional value for easy digestion.Ingredients:
Prepare all ingredients, and add the beet, apple, banana, ginger and 1 cup of tea to your OmniBlend jug. Start blending on low, increasing to high, slowly adding more liquid. With this kind of blends it’s important to first blend a thick mixture, and add more liquid later once you’ve got a smooth texture. Add tea to your own preference, creating a thicker or more liquid drink.
Tip: freezing banana in halves creates colder drinks, and you can also add ice cubes along with the other ingredients to cool it down. Freeze some tea in an ice cube tray to not lose on flavour and benefits.
