Beetroot Powder Smoothie 

Smoothies have long been known for their innumerable health benefits. So let’s unfold a fun beetroot powder drink recipe to keep your gut healthy and make your skin shine, all while enriching your taste buds! 


Making the beet protein smoothie only requires 5 basic ingredients — and you can most probably find them in your pantry. 

      • Frozen strawberries

      • Frozen bananas

      • Almond milk

      • Beetroot powder

    How To Make Beetroot Powder Smoothie

    The recipe for our beet powder protein shake involves straightforward, quick, and easy steps. 

        1. Combine the bananas, pineapple, strawberries, and beetroot in a large blender cup.
          Pro Tip: If you want a thick smoothie texture, make sure to use frozen fruit. 

        1. Cover with almond milk and continue blending until smooth and creamy.
          Pro Tip: If too thick, thin it with more milk. If too thin, add ice to thicken it. 

        1. Taste the smoothie and adjust the taste according to your liking. Adding lime juice, for example, can sweeten the smoothie.

        1. Once perfected, pour the smoothie into glasses, crown it with your favorite toppings (like chia seeds, coconut flakes, or dried fruits), serve, and enjoy! 


      Some additional tips you can keep in mind for a super delicious beetroot powder smoothie include: 

          • Your tastebuds might not appreciate the extremely earthy flavor of too much beetroot powder. Therefore, it is better to start with a teaspoon (or half), taste it, and then add more accordingly. 

          • For a sweeter smoothie, add more fruit. 

          • Add a small amount of water (gradually) to make blending more effective. 

          • Apart from bananas, strawberries, and pineapples, you can opt for other options like frozen raspberries, oranges, and carrots. 

          • Almond milk can be replaced with unsweetened juices, such as fresh orange juice or apple juice. However, this might alter the flavor slightly. 

          • Instead of lime juice, sweeteners like maple syrup and honey can be used too. 

          • To enhance the flavor, consider optional add-ins, like flax seeds, hemp seeds, nut butter, protein powder, and leafy greens.
