Beetroot smoothie

BEETROOT.....I think it wouldn't be wrong to call it the" king of root vegetables".As a child I never liked the taste of it , and not to go on its colour  which scared me,because of which may be I hated the vegetable.
In the recent years I have developed an unusual liking towards this subtle, earthy ,fibrous root veggie.After coming across so many articles regarding the health benefits of it ,I have repented so much for not including it in my diet .And hence to compensate the loss (I know its very huge)decided to include it in my diet at least 2 times a week
It lowers blood pressure,a great detox for liver and blood,besides having anti inflammatory,anti cancer properties.At times we really neglect mother natures bounties and run after the man made solutions  (tablets) loaded with side effects.Smoothies are generally drinks made with yoghurt with a combination of fruits or chocolate .I had it after a walk and trust me... that was really refreshing and energising.You can call it "health in a glass".


  • 1 beetroot chopped
  • 2 cups yoghurt
  • mint a hand full
  • coriander a hand full
  • 1 cucumber chopped


  1. place all the ingredients in a blender and blend it to a smoothie.


  1. U can blanch  or steam the beet root and use it,I have used it raw .
  2.  I have not added any sugar to avoid the unwanted calories,If u desire u can add honey or brown sugar to it
