Post-Workout Smoothie
 
 
Sometimes, juice may not be satisfying enough and you need more calories say after a workout or during lunch. Here is a nutrient dense smoothie to help you get your beets.
Ingredients
  • 1 small beetroot (washed, peeled and diced into small chunks)
  • 5 strawberries (I used frozen)
  • 2 frozen bananas (I personally don’t like bananas so I replaced it with ½ of an avocado)
  • 3 soaked dates
  • 1 scoop of raw meal powder (I used protein powder instead as I was using this a post workout smoothie)
  • 2 soaked prunes (soaked overnight, you can also use raisins)
  • 1 cup almond milk (I used kefir instead, for probiotics)
Instructions
  1. Blend the beets with a little liquid about 3 tablespoons for about a minute and then slowly add the rest of the ingredients one at a time and blend until smooth. This smoothie is best when drank immediately.
Notes
**I added 3 handfuls of spinach and ½ cup of coconut water which the recipe did not call for. Also, I added 3-4 ice cubes.

***I tried this smoothie with modifications for my taste buds; I encourage you to do the same.
