Elizabeth Brown of The Kitchen Vixen, registered dietitian and holistic chef, suggests cooking some vegetables before consuming, as they “are easier tolerated than raw forms and will likely cause less heartburn.” Beets are a mineral-rich and delicious option for meal-replacement drinks.

Beet, Apple and Ginger Detox Smoothie This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure and privacy policy. This is a selfish smoothie. At a time of the year when food and cooking is all about hospitality, I&rsquove made something entirely for me, a concoction I knew from the start&ndashwith 100% certainty&ndashthat no one else in my house would desire except me. But, it&rsquos ok for several reasons. First, because I need a burst of energy for the next few days, and this revitalizing drink provides plenty. Second, because I am least &ldquosharing&rdquo my drink with you, fair reader. Third, because balance is a good thing&ndashi.e., it&rsquos fine to take 10 minutes out of my day to do nothing save for savoring a smoothie&hellipI think&hellipstill working on that one&hellipand finally, because this simple drink thrills me to my toes, and that&rsquos always fine justification for a food blog. I should also mention that this is the inaugural smoothie from spanking brand new, first-ever Vitamix 750 Blender! I entered a Food Network Contest many months back that asked contestants to come devise a single recipe that makes use of a blender and combines (1) shrimp, (2) watermelon, (3) dill pickles, and (4) soy sauce. Seriously. I entered the dessert category. Seriously. Lucky me, I won a mixer! I promise to put it to good blog use in the days, months and years to come. I will, however, spare you my shrimp-watermelon-pickle-soy sauce assemblage. Benefits of Beets

Beets belong to the classification of the chenopod family, which also includes other extremely healthy foods such as chard, spinach, and quinoa.

They contain a unique nutrient called betaine. It helps protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress, making beets an antioxidant. The betalin pigment in beets supports your body’s internal detoxification process, so that toxins can then be expelled through the kidneys. They are a natural body purifier.

Beets are good for your blood. They have naturally occurring nitrates, which are different from the cancer-causing nitrates found in foods like bacon. These natural nitrates convert into nitric oxide in the body, which helps relax blood vessels, improve blood flow, and lower blood pressure.

Phytonutrients give beets their deep crimson color. Research has shown that beetroot extract can reduce multi-organ tumor formations. It’s currently being used in further studies when treating other types of cancers.

Beets supply you with 6% of your daily recommended value for Vitamin C, 266 mg of potassium, 4% of your DRV for manganese, and 5% of your DRV of the B vitamin folate.

Oh, and if you’re concerned about calories, then try beets as part of your diet. A 2” beet contains 35 calories, 0.2 grams of fat, 6 grams of sugar, 2.3 grams of fiber, and 8 grams of carbohydrates. There are three main varieties that are well-known, including the common red beet, sugar beet, and yellow beet.

The beet’s beautiful and naturally occurring red color makes it a striking addition to your smoothies.


Beet Smoothie & Hummus Toast Combinations

For this breakfast spread I wanted to do a mixture of both savory and sweet hummus toast options because the ingredients in the beet smoothie go so well with either approach.

Beet Feta Hummus Toast:

For this combination, I used mini bagels as the &ldquotoast&rdquo. 1 &ndash because bagels are one of my favorite carbohydrates and 2 &ndash because anything in &ldquomini&rdquo form is cute and tastes better (it&rsquos a fact).

I used the same cooked beets I used in the beet smoothie on this toast, sliced thinly and paired with some salty feta cheese crumbles.

I stuck to the classic Sabra hummus for this one to let the beet and feta flavors shine through on top.

Fried Egg, Tomato & Sprout Hummus Toast:

If you&rsquore like me and can&rsquot resist a runny egg (try this strawberry chile jam breakfast sandwich if so) , this hummus toast is for you!

With roasted garlic hummus as the base on a piece of toasted chewy sourdough bread (yum!), fresh sprouts, ripe tomato slices and a fried egg are piled on top.

Two pieces of this hummus toast along with a glass of the beet smoothie and you have a filling, nutritious breakfast!

Grilled Nectarine Basil & Pistachio Hummus Toast:

For the sweet hummus toast approach, I grilled some nectarine slices (a great way to bring out flavor in any underripe fruit by the way), thinly sliced some fresh basil and sprinkled a few chopped pistachios on top of another piece of sourdough with classic hummus.

I had thought I&rsquod drizzle this hummus toast with honey for some added sweetness but it honestly didn&rsquot need it. The grilled nectarines caramelized (and if you&rsquore into that, check out this basil nectarine upside down cake &ndash so good!) beautifully and brought the perfect amount of sweetness to each bite. The pistachios are the exact pop of texture this toast needed too so don&rsquot skip those (or use another nut you like)!

Hummus toast is so versatile, the possibilities are endless. It&rsquos the perfect option when hosting a bunch of people because the hummus base is vegan and gluten-free and each person can top according to their needs and taste.

From smoked salmon to roasted fruit to fresh or pickled vegetables &ndash there&rsquos literally a hummus toast for everyone!

When I was planning this kitchen renovation, I knew the counter space was going to be significantly larger than what we had before. With the new counters installed just yesterday it&rsquos even bigger than I had imagined and my mind immediately started thinking of all the ways to entertain and enjoy it.

I think a brunch like this with a smoothie bar and hummus toast spread is the perfect way to break in the new space!


Overall this smoothie is suitable for people with diabetes, or anyone that needs to keep an eye on blood sugar levels. But it&aposs worth mentioning a few things about the ingredients used:

Kale has a very low Glycemic Load, so no risks there.

Bananas have a medium GI, so they should be consumed in moderation. If you have diabetesਊnd feel like you already had enough carbs today, then make this smoothie without bananas

Although beetroots have a medium-high Glycemic Index, their Glycemic Load is very low. What this means is that it&aposs perfectly safe to eat an average-sized portion of beetroots if you have diabetes. Because we don&apost use too much of this ingredient in our smoothie, you are good to go.


Meal prepping through the week.

Best thing about this recipe is THE MEAL PREP done ahead of time. I have included a pic of that to show you. I have an early start each morning and often don't find opening a full bag of frozen fruit and portioning it out the most easiest or stress free of tasks, then I get annoyed when I accidentally drop a few pieces on the floor which I then have to pick up and bin, all the while thinking 'oh no, I ruined that lovely fruit'. So I used my technique that I rely on for portioning out other meals and it worked a treat. All you do is get a tall cup that has a reasonably wide (think bigger than a tennis ball) opening to it. Put your open zip lock bag into the cup and open it out folding the zip part around the outside of the cup.

Then you go through and add your fruit or veg portions, zip the bag up and pop them all in the freezer.

So then on those mornings when you are like 'quick, go, go' to get out the door, you can grab a prepared bag of the fruit, pop it into your blender jug, top it up to the fill line with coconut water and then put the lid on and out the door you go. I do this as I have a spare old blender at work, but obviously you could make it before you go then drink it on the way etc, I will leave that decision in your capable hands depending on your morning routine.

So, the Beetroot Power, I add when I get to work (just a teaspoon), then blend and wowieee, it is packed with flavour and I kid you not, I feel a sense of vitality sweep through me within the hour after consuming. I would definitely advise exercising caution in how much powder to add as it goes from delicious to 'ugh' too much, too, too much powder if you don't moderate your serve.

I have been at yoga this morning, I find it is always THE BEST way to start the weekend if I can. It is a lovely bunch of people that go to the studio and you walk away feeling like you have ticked all the right boxes for the day. So good in fact, you want to drive hop and whip up one of these bad boys to get your morning off to a powering start.


Heart-Healthy Beet Smoothie

On top of their rich concentration of folate, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and fiber, beet root is also loaded with phytonutrients.

Phytonutrients are chemical compounds in plants that give them a vibrant color and protect the plant from environmental harm (think bugs, weather). These same compounds have health benefits for humans.

Betalains are the main phytonutrients found in beets which give them a bright red pigment and convey cancer-fighting properties.

Beetroot juice has also shown to be a potent vasodilator, meaning it helps blood vessels relax, improving blood flow and allowing for healthy heart functioning. Some studies show that beetroot juice may improve cardiorespiratory endurance in athletes.

While I am obviously infatuated with beets, I know they’re not for everyone — which is why I’m excited to share this recipe with you guys!

The beets in my You Make My Heart Beet Smoothie are discretely incorporated into this sweet, creamy drink producing a delicious flavor that even the biggest beet adversary will enjoy.

This recipe is dairy-free and vegan, and makes a delicious snack or dessert.

Beetroot apple smoothie – The best beetroot smoothie

Beetroot apple smoothie. &ndash We have been experimenting with healthy smoothies for quite some time now and began to love them. The smoothie passion started after the hubby was raving a lot about them which he get to enjoy regularly near his workplace. Heard a lot about the changes he finds in himself, a healthy mind and healthy body. Finally he got me into making these for more than a few years now. We love them a lot.

Thought of sharing a few delicious smoothies with you all, yes only delicious smoothies. They have not been made with Incompatible combinations, hence easy to digest. They are best served alone without any other foods. I will be glad, if I can inspire some of you to make these for yourself. The benefits are immense, experiment and experience the benefits for yourself.

Beetroot smoothie is made using beets, green apple (granny smith) and pear. I have not used water, the entire smoothie has been made using only three ingredients and no added sugar. You can replace green apples with the regular ones.

We are not always into using organic beetroot, apples or pears yet. We just go with whatever is available at hand, but try to include clean and fresh produce for maximum health benefits.

I have been extremely privileged to bring these magnificent smoothies. Every food on the planet has come under some criticism with the notable exception of fruit/vegetables smoothies. These fruit/vegetables smoothies nourish every cell in the body, help prevent disease, flush the system of waste and contain more vitamins and minerals than you can rattle a plum at, and there isn’t a single person on the planet with any shred of common sense that could possibly argue against these magnificent smoothies!
