How refreshing is a bowl of smoothie which is enriched by flavors of beetroot, coconut milk, and flax seeds?
A beetroot smoothie bowl is a gluten-free low-calorie recipe of boiled beets, oats, coconut milk, and flax seeds made in a super-easy way. This recipe is free of any refined sugar as beets are a natural source of sugar.
One may choose to have it mixed with other vegetables to have a vegetable smoothie.
Having beetroot puree and coconut milk lying in my refrigerator, oats, flax seeds in my pantry, I really had not to be worried about ingredients.
You may skip oats and milk if you wish to. Instead one may mix beet with cucumber, carrots, lemon and ginger to have an instant vegetable smoothie that is totally healthy and guilt-free.
Add oats, beetroot, coconut milk, plain milk, flax seeds, and a little maple syrup and grind coarse. Top it with your choice of fruits and enjoy it!!
Can I add Curd instead of Milk to Smoothie?
The curd smoothie tastes amazingly delicious too. Though I have not tried it with beetroot yet, but with cucumber, Bottle gourd, mint, the curd mixes really well and its a healthy treat.
Can it be Vegan?
Modifications are possible. Like people with vegan choices can skip plain milk and add more coconut milk/soya milk/almond milk.
I have skipped adding any sugar as beets are naturally sweet.
Since I prefer foods that are locally available to me, I have skipped items like chia seeds, avocado, grapefruits, etc. I would suggest you choose your local fruits/foods and feel free to incorporate them into this recipe!
Is this beetroot smoothie good for weight loss?
No food is good or bad for weight loss. It’s the choice that we make is. This nutritious smoothie bowl has no artificial flavour, color or sugar and is absolutely great meal for people on diet plan. Remember, eating in right proporotion is the key.
Beets are rich in iron, Vitamin C, potassium and fiber. With no cholesterol in it, beets help lower your blood pressure naturally. Improves stamina and hemoglobin levels and helps you maintain a healthy weight.
Stories from Kitchen
I have always loved beetroot and I could eat it raw and in soups. . I remember waiting for Juice wala Bhaiya in summers to make a mixed juice that had fresh and damp beets. But we were not allowed much to have outside juice. It’s only after getting married, I could have the real fun of street food. My husband would take me to all places around us to the best own food joints.
Amongst several experiments that I carry out in my Kitchen, each one has a unique story. This beetroot smoothie bowl is my first step towards healthy living!
