|honey yoghurt beetroot smoothie.|
It's autumn now, and nearly winter, but I'm clearly still in denial, still making bright and cheerful smoothies. Indeed, why not? They are so easy, so delicious, so satisfying. And today's beetroot smoothie is so, so wonderfully pink, in a fuchsia-magenta kind of way. It is also sweet, earthy, and revitalising.
In other words, wherever you're at, be it cool or warm... if beetroot is in season, this is a smoothie that you should seriously consider making.

honey yoghurt beetroot smoothie
1 small beetroot, peeled and chopped (approx. 150g / 1/3lb)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup unsweetened natural or greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons honey
8 ice cubes
Whiz everything together in a blender until smooth. Pour into glasses, and serve.
You may strain the mixture to remove any grittiness from beetroot roughage, but as I am lazy and appreciate the extra fibre, I didn't bother.
