This berry beet smoothie is absolutely delicious. Made with coconut yogurt, a mix of frozen berries, goji berries, raw beet, maca and raw honey, this beautiful red smoothie is packed with antioxidants and fibre, and probiotics. If you like, add camu camu for extra antioxidants, but very optional.
I used plain coconut yogurt in the recipe but if you can’t find or don’t care for it, use a good quality Greek or whole milk plain yogurt. I encourage organic, full fat. It’s more natural, less processed, more nutritious and satisfying.
What Berries did I Use?
Red berries. I used frozen strawberries, raspberries, cherries and pomegranate.
It’s Optional but… What’s Camu Camu?
It’s a berry native to the Amazon rainforest. It’s known as the berry that contains the most antioxidants. It has a red color, similar to cherry, and is slightly bitter. You can purchase it in your health food store or online, and it comes in dried ground powder.
When Should I Consume It?
It makes a great breakfast, snack or even dessert, or late night snack. Children should enjoy this one too!
Hope you enjoy it. It’s not vegan as it has raw honey (a true healing superfood!) but for a vegan option use maple syrup.
