Beetroot Is Good for You. But Are Beets Good in Smoothies?

 

 

 

Beetroot or beet is a really versatile vegetable. You can eat it fried, steamed, boiled, roasted, grilled, pickled, and much more. And it’s really good for you. But are beets good in smoothies?

Absolutely!

BUT you need to be careful what you mix it with. There are some pretty horrible beet smoothies! Luckily, there are also some yummy ones.

Beetroot Benefits

Beets can help to lower high blood pressure, and because they contain iron they can prevent anemia. They’re great for stamina – beets an hour or two before exercise will help you to stay strong. They’re also good at detoxing the liver, and they’re full of vitamins and goodness.

You Need to Mix It

Beetroot is NOT ideal as a juice or smoothie on its own – it’s not a great taste.

But if you mix it up with specific ingredients, they “hide” (or at least mask) the taste, so it’s not overpowering.

As a general rule, add a little ginger, and then some sweet fruits. Banana and strawberry are ideal.

And if you really want to drown out the taste of the beets, then add raspberries instead of (or as well as) the strawberries.

Read on for a nice recipe.

Beet Smoothie Recipe

Note – if your blender is not hugely powerful (mine isn’t), chop the beets up small before adding.

Ingredients

½-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced

75g  / ½ cup beetroot , chopped

75g / ½ cup strawberries, fresh or frozen (and raspberries if you don’t want to taste the beets)

1 banana, frozen, in chunks or slices

1 heaped teaspoon chia or flax seeds

100ml / ½ cup freshly-squeezed orange juice

100ml / ½ cup water

  • beetroot smoothie with cucumber and blueberry juiceAdd the ginger, beets and all the liquid into a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again.
  • If it’s too “slushy” for your taste, add more liquid until it’s right for you.
  • Serve immediately.

This highly nutritious smoothie is also filling, and good to drink before a long workout. Enjoy!

As an interesting alternative, try beets with cucumber, and add either apple or blueberries for sweetness.

If you prefer a juice to a smoothie, then juice 3 oranges, 1 carrot and 1 beet.

So, the answer to “are beets good in smoothies” (or juices) is yes – but be careful what you mix them with!
