There’s two reasons why I wanted to make this strawberry beetroot smoothie.

  • Vitamin C. It’s important to ensure that you get plenty of support for your immune system all year round, particularly in winter.
  • Because it’s been ages since I made a smoothie and I’ve been wanting to try the combination of strawberries and beetroot together for ages!

So folks, picture last Saturday, if you will.

I’m in the kitchen with packets of cooked beetroot, strawberries, bananas, vegan yogurt, almond milk, date nectar and stevia. I’m ready for a good few hours of recipe experimentation to get this strawberry beetroot smoothie right.

I shout upstairs to Lynne “Can you come and taste this please”. I turn round a slit second later where Lynne is already standing. Spoon in hand. Ready.

One spoonful of the alluring frothy liquid and Lynne announces “Yeah that’s great, nothing more needed there. When can I have some”?

And hereby I created this delicious strawberry beetroot smoothie.

My easiest, simplest smoothie recipe to date.

And then I began to get paranoid. I felt like a fraud.

Surely I couldn’t publish a recipe with only 3 ingredients? I mean that’s like cheating. This strawberry beetroot smoothie was meant to be an elaborate fusion of a whole number of different ingredients!!

But then it struck me. That’s just what it is. Isn’t it?

I’d accomplished exactly what I’d set out to achieve. Plus more.

  • Minimum ingredients. Minimum effort. Maximum Vitamin C.
  • A unique and perfectly fusioned, simple, quick healthy strawberry beetroot smoothie.

Sometimes simple is best. 🙂

  1. Wow Neil – you nailed it on the first try! And with only 3 ingredients – one of which is my all time favorite – beets!!! LOVE this! I so need to try this as I have beets and strawberries and yogurt – though it isn’t vegan!

  2. Wow, what a stunning colour that smoothie is! I just love adding beetroot to smoothies (usually my green smoothies) as it adds a nice earthy flavour to it.

      I’m glad you like that “earthy” flavour too Dannii, this definitely has that. 🙂

      I thought about adding a sweetener to this, but then that would have taken away that “earthy” flavour, and then the authenticity too.

  3. Crikey, this looks amazing. I bet you could freeze this for the most amazing frozen yogurt as well!
    Also, Lynne, I like your style.

      A frozen yogurt you say? Now I wish I’d thought of that myself! Brilliant!

      I’d assume you’d adopt the same style as Lynne here? 😉

  4. I love adding beet juice to brownie mix because you never know its there. I never though my to add it to a smoothie. I’m going to have to give this a try.

      Hi Jenn, yes, I love adding beet juice to cakes and brownie mix too. I find it adds a really unique texture!

      Thanks for giving this a try, hope you enjoy! 😀

  5. This color is stunning!! I love beets but often forget i have them in the fridge. That has to change!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Sam, it’s such a vibrant colour isn’t it?

      It’s little wonder you get your full recommended daily allowance of vitamin C with that colour! It’s almost glowing. 🙂

  6. Wow this sounds fantastic not to mention beautiful! So nutritious. What better treat to give to your Valentine next month – a large glass of your Strawberry Beetroot Smoothie!

      That’s a great idea Vicki. I think Lynne would be delighted with a glass of this strawberry beetroot smoothie……

      …..along with the flowers, chocolates, wine, romantic meal etc… 😆

  7. Beets are one of my true loves 😉 Let those bad boys shine! Minimal is always beautiful!

      Thanks Rebecca 🙂 , those beats certainly do shine in this recipe, for sure!

      As I mentioned to you previously, I’m not one who does smoothies often. So the fact this one worked out so well, so quickly, was a blessing!


  8. Healthy, easy and just 3 ingredients – this makes this recipe a winner in my book! I love smoothies for breakfast or afternoon snack! Never tried adding a beetroot to smoothie, but sounds like a great idea!

      So glad you liked this recipe Melanie, thanks.

      I’m jealous that you can have a smoothie for an afternoon snack though. I’d love to be able to do that, but I can’t see my work being too happy at me chopping and then blending away in the kitchen. The blender noise would annoy the colleagues I work with, who might not be too happy. 😆

      Love smoothies at the weekend, all weekend though! 😀

  9. I lovet that this only has three ingredients, the more simple recipes are always winners in my book! This color is so beautiful and I love that you combined beets and strawberries together, yum!

      I was so nervous in publishing a recipe with only three ingredients Rachel, so I’m delighted by yours and everyone’s overwhelming support, thanks! 🙂

      You can bet I’ll be aiming to keep to making as simple recipes as I can, like this, in future too. 😀
