A simple red smoothie recipe: beetroot & carrot

This beetroot and carrot smoothie is the first red smoothie recipe I tried when I decided I wanted to become a bit more adventurous by adding more vegetables into my smoothies.

I already knew that carrots go really well with fruits like apples and pears in juices. Then I started experimenting with using beetroot and chocolate flavours in my baking.

Some of the health benefits from regularly consuming beetroot:

  • may help to keep blood pressure in check
  • can reduce inflammation
  • may improve athletic performance
  • can improve digestive health
  • supports brain health

There are lots of different ways you can add beetroot into your diet and smoothies are just one easy way.
