Recipe: Beetroot-Chocolate-Protein Smoothie

Hello & Hallo,

Smoothies are a great option for meal on the go – be it breakfast, after you lunchtime gym-class or even when you don’t have time for dinner – e.g. because you are going to an evening event.

Over the last year I have started to getting into smoothies and protein powders. I am on a predominately plant-based diet which can make it difficult to get in all your protein. Protein powders are a very convenient & quick way to adding this to your diet.

I tend to mix flavoured & unflavoured protein powders because the flavoured ones on their own are a bit sweet for me. By adding some unflavoured protein this is β€˜diluted’.

This week I tried something a bit different – beetroot!

The taste was surprisingly nice – fruity & the chocolate flavour worked really well with it. Definitely a repeater! See the recipe below:

Ingredients:

How to:

  • Mix the chia seeds with water and let sit for a few minutes. That way they can expand a bit before you mix the smoothie.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients & mix until smooth. Done!

Enjoy right away or take it with you for a meal on the go.

Guten Appetit & Enjoy,

Marlene xxx
