BEETROOT, APPLE AND POMEGRANATE SMOOTHIE


BEETROOT, APPLE AND POMEGRANATE SMOOTHIE


It's been quite a while since the last time I posted a smoothie, right? Now it's apple and pomegranate season it's the perfect timing to make this super easy, delicious and nutritious recipe.   

And if you are one of those who struggle to eat your fruits throughout the day, smoothies are your best allies. I think is the perfect way to start up your day after having a glass with warm water and lemon. 
With this smoothie you'll get a great amount of vitamins, minerals and fiber in just a few sips.

Beetroots contain a high amount of iron therefore it is recommended in cases of anemia. It is also good for urinary infections  and has detoxifying properties for the liver, kidneys and bowel.
Pomegranates have a massive antioxidant power, it is anti-inflammatory and prevents fluid retention. And apples... what can I say about apples... "One apple a day keeps the doctor away" it already says a lot... It is obviously not miraculous but it has a lot of benefits since it is diuretic, it helps digestion and regulates the intestine transit both in cases of constipation and diarrhea, it has a satiating effect and a long etcetera...


In order to have a really smooth drink I prefer making the pomegranate juice in advance and strain it to remove the seeds. 
Regarding the apples I always try using them organic so I don't have to peel them to make sure they won't have any wax, pesticides and other toxics.

Looks so fancy with that amazing colour, doesn't it?! Here goes the recipe... ;)

PREPARATION
  1. Make the pomegranate juice. I use the blender to do it and then drain it. Clean the mixer and then pour the juice.
  2. Add the beetroot, apple, lemon juice, grate the ginger, and fresh water depending on how thick you want it. I start with a little and add more gradually. 
  3. Blend at high speed until you achieve a creamy, lump-free texture, adding more water to get the thickness you like and ready to drink!
