Dairy Free Beetroot Smoothie With Apple Orange And Carrot

Dairy free beetroot smoothie with apple, orange and carrot.
A perfect low calorie drink with breakfast. Delicious, healthy and filling. I have used carrot, apple and orange juice in it. You can use any fruit of your choice.

You don’t need to add any sweetener in this smoothie. But you can add black salt and black pepper powder if you want. I love this smoothie both ways.

Beetroots have numerous health benefits.
Beetroot is rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients and it without doubt is a ‘super-food’. It helps to treat anemia, indigestion, constipation, piles, kidney disorders, dandruff, gall bladder disorders, cancer and heart disease. It also helps to improve blood circulation, helps to deal with respiratory problems and even prevents cataracts.

I have used orange juice but you can use grape or any other fruit juice. Add fruit juice according to your taste. Almond milk can be used instead of coconut milk.

Recipe

Beetroot – 1 boiled

Carrot – 1

Apple – 1, peeled and cored

Orange juice – 1 cup

Coconut milk – 1/2 cup

Lemon juice – 1/2 teaspoon

Cinnamon powder – 1/4 teaspoon

Finely chopped walnut to garnish

Method

1. Peel and chop the boiled beetroot.

2. Grate or finely chop the apple for easy blending.

3. Mix all the ingredients and blend until smooth and frothy. See notes for more options.

Notes

1. You don’t need to add any sweetener. Smoothie is enough sweet due to the sweetness of beetroot, apple, orange and coconut milk.

2. You can add black salt and black pepper powder if you like to enhance the taste.

3. You can also add ice cubes if require.

4. Almond milk can be used instead of coconut milk.
