Banana Beetroot Smoothie

They say that you eat with your eyes and I can clearly see why with the vibrant colour of this smoothie. The bright burgundy of the beetroot makes this smoothie so appealing. It has a beautiful sweet taste from the natural sugars of the beetroot, banana and dates and is full of healthy fats and goodness from your almonds and flaxseeds.


¼ cup activated cashews
1 frozen banana, chopped
1 small beetroot, peeled and chopped
1 Medjool date, pitted
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup coconut water


Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend for 60 sec until smooth and creamy. Pour into glass and enjoy.
