Morning Miracle: Beetroot Smoothie

By Gee Marling

For a morning smoothie that is as visually stimulating as it is nutritionally satisfying look no further than this crimson-coloured beetroot beauty courtesy of celebrated nutritionist Amelia Freer.

Freer notes, ‘I love to balance the earthy taste of beetroot… with something zingy like ginger. The addition of almond milk brings some morning protein and it really is the most spectacular colour!

This recipe has the added bonus of being incredibly quick and easy to whizz together so you can leave the alarm on snooze for a few more precious minutes before you start your day.



½ a medium raw beetroot, scrubbed not peeled
½ an apple
cored ½ a medium carrot, scrubbed not peeled
1cm piece (5g) ginger
150-200ml unsweetened almond or cashew milk
A handful of ice to serve, optional


Simple: Roughly cut vegetables and blend until smooth!
