I am always on about smoothies. I think they are a great way to get all of those essential nutrients in an easy drink.
However I am also always on about getting more vegetables in our diet, so here is my answer! It is definitely me favourite smoothie.
To make your smoothie base you will need:
- 500G organic carrots.
- 1 large bunch celery.
- medium raw beetroot.
- Ginger (about 2cm cube)
- slow juicer.
Juice all of the vegetables and refrigerate the juice, it will be the smothie base. Keep all of the pulp.
Add 1 large glass of juice to your blender and add any fruit you want. Blend thoroughly. You will end up with a very purple but very healthy smoothie.
If you are a non-veg you can add it to mince and it becomes a great base for meatloaf or rissoles.
If you are going to do this you need to clean your vegetables before juicing.
The pulp will last up to a day in the refrigerator but does not freeze well if you are adding it to other dishes.
I also have used it in a vegetarian omelet and have made cakes with it. The cakes where interesting but require some experimentation to get right. It suits semolina cakes better that a plain sponge type cake mix.
I have also promised myself that one day I will get around to trying it in Friands, but I doubt that they will be as good as my partners Friands.
