I love creating smoothies by colour. This smoothie is full of all things red and purple, which are known for containing an abundance of plant-based omega-3, anthocyanins and resveratrol — all things that are wonderfully restorative for our cells, from the inside out.
Though I usually have a green smoothie every day, I sometimes feel like a change and this smoothie is my go-to when I feel like I need an immune-boosting antioxidant punch — it is also great pre- or post-workout.
If you find the taste of beetroot too earthy, you can leave it out. You can also add a little extra banana if you like things sweeter, or add a date or honey. The ginger in here is lovely and gives the smoothie a warming quality on wintery days. Find the recipe featured in Bite Magazine here.
