Top Tips for Making a perfect Beet smoothie
- Be aware that the type of blender you use. The quality of the blender will determine the texture of your smoothie. Start at a lower speed and increase gradually. Place your liquid first so the ingredients will mix easier.
- Cut the raw peeled beets in small pieces for better blending.
- You can adjust the amount of the liquid to achieve the thickness you wish. Personally, I like it with a thick texture.
- A lot of people do hate greens of any kind, especially kids. If you do not like greens, smoothies are a great way to sneak greens into your diet. Yes, you can have greens in your smoothies and believe me, a good combination can taste great! In this recipe, I added cucumber but you can substitute it with a handful of spinach.
Why People love raw smoothies
- Smoothies are nutritionally dense food, full of minerals, vitamins and can replace any meal of the day. They are super easy to make and there are hundreds of fruits, plant-based kinds of milk, sweeteners, vegetables, superfoods, nuts, and seeds combinations that you can make.
- It’s an ideal breakfast choice and perfect for weight loss and detox.
How to make a Perfect Smoothie
- Start with putting some fruits (apples are easy if they are in season and bananas for sweetness) with some kind of liquid. You can either use water or start with some kind of juice, e.g. orange juice (that way you get a 100% fruit smoothie), or plant-based milk which are high in Protein
- Once you are past that stage, you can experiment with “Green Smoothies“ to add greens like kale, spinach, salad, or whatever other green leaves you have at home. My suggestion here would be to start with a small quantity, as the resulting smoothies do not taste as sweet.
- Essential for making smoothies is a powerful Blender (or you need to blend for a really long time for the smoothie to come, well, smooth).
- By using frozen fruits, you can get an ice-cold smoothie, but beware, blending frozen fruit or vegetables does, of course, add a much higher strain on your blender than non-frozen food. I like to add these in small quantities to a running blender.
As a matter of fact, I once destroyed a blender jug by putting in frozen banana pieces first and then turning on the machine.
- Make sure that you secure your blender lid very tightly in the jug.
