Beetroot & Berry Smoothie

I made a smoothie today, totally experimental and it is utterly delicious!

Ingredients are;

A cup of cranberry juice

Half a cup of frozen mixed (blackberries, raspberries, redcurrants, black currants, strawberries)

Half a lime including the zest/skin just take the seeds out!

1 medium banana

1 whole large beetroot raw!

A wedge of red bell pepper

Cinnamon to taste

I mixed this together in my nutribullet I bought about 5yrs ago and it serves three.  My son Henry needed sugar with his in order to convince him to drink it; he won’t have it with honey unfortunately!

It’s very tasty, I have had smoothies a lot in the past, but it is usually a bother for Paul to help me with making them when I am going through my hard times and so I feel guilty getting him to do them, but today I did it myself, had some energy to do so. 

It’s a new recipe for me, I made it up as I went along and I am glad I did.

I was fearful of wasting a lot of food I can’t afford to replace, but it was a good and well paid off risk and Henry seems to like it so far!

I need to find a green smoothie I like just as much, lol.
