It feels like everyone around me has a blocked nose, a fever or is getting ill. The best remedy for all these winter ailments? Vitamins! Not supplements of course, but all natural vitamins from vegetables and fruit. By eating more vitamins your immune system gets a great boost and your body recovers more quickly. Beets are one of the most powerful vegetables for your health. They’re bursting of vitamin C, magnesium, iron and copper. Moreover, beets are also known as the natural treatment against kidney disorders, fever and constipation.
So, if you feel like you need a vitamin boost you should try this smoothie. The banana in it gives you some extra energy, the cinnamon keeps your blood sugar levels stable and the ginger adds a spicy touch to the smoothie. Therefore, this smoothie contains all you need to keep your body happy.
(For one person)
1 frozen banana
2 raw beets
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger root
200 ml almond milk
Start with cutting the skin of the beets. Cut the beets into small blocks so they’re easier to blend. Add all the ingredients together in the blender and mix into a creamy smoothie. Pour the smoothie in a big glass and serve with a colourful straw.
Tip: If you’re not used to spicy food take half a teaspoon of ginger instead of a whole one.
