Beetroot and Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are the bomb! They contain more fibre than a juice, and the addition of fat-free yogurt makes it a satisfying post-work out snack. The banana is a wonderful fruit to use in smoothies as the flavour is strong enough to hide a bitter vegetable like kale, but thankfully is no match to the delicious, deeply-flavoured earthy beetroot, featured in this smoothie.

Smoothies lose their vibrant colour if left too long, so if you have the time to make them in the morning, that is best – but if you aren’t concerned about vibrancy of colour, they are perfectly fine if made the night before and stored (covered) in the fridge.
