Vegan MoFo: Liquid Breakfast - Beetroot, Carrot, Orange & Ginger Smoothie

I love smoothies for breakfast. It's the easiest way to hydrate and nourish your body. I got myself a book on juices with the aim to try a different one every day. The difference being, in the recipes only the juice is used, but I'm using the pulp as well, for the fibre and to slow down the absorption of all that fructose! So today it was beetroot, carrot, orange, and ginger. Wowee! I love fresh beetroot, and although the kitchen fairy (aka my sister Sally) wasn't so keen, I loved it. Not too sweet, and that ginger kick was just right. I used two medium beetroot, two large carrots, three oranges, and a thumb sized piece of ginger. I'll be buzzing around all morning....


  1. That looks great, I need to drink more smoothies & juices.

  2. Haha, I didn't know beetroot juice goes out a lighter/similar colour to what it goes in LOL!!
