Beetroot & Ginger
Smoothie

VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE

Beetroot and ginger are a very good combination and blended together in a smoothie provide quite a powerful and beneficial tonic. Beetroots have lots of vitamins and minerals and are suggested to have blood pressure lowering effects. Ginger has been suggested to aid digestion, reduce nausea and help fight the flu and common cold. I add some nut milk as a source of protein to help to stabilise blood sugar levels, but you could use regular milk for this.

Beetroots are available from July through till November so we have a good long few months to enjoy them.
