A smoothie is a drink made of pureed vegetables and / or fruits, usually diluted with natural water, coconut water, fruit juice, yogurt, milk or ice cream. This drink perfectly refreshes and fills in at the same time.
The majority of vegetables and almost all fruits can be used to prepare a smoothie. Broccoli, carrots, spinach, kale, zucchini, cucumber, cauliflower or beetroot will work great in this drink.
The following recipe for a healthy smoothie is based on a combination of beetroot, orange, apple and carrot. I made this beetroot smoothie without any sugar, which I replaced with maple syrup. To dilute the mixed ingredients, I used the most ordinary natural water.
