Berryliscious Beet Smoothie

Servings: 2 people


  • 150 g mixed berries fresh or frozen (preferably organic)
  • ½ medium beetroot scrubbed, trimmed and roughly chopped
  • ¼ medium avocado peeled and stoned
  • 1 handfull baby spinach leaves
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds freshly ground
  • 140 ml coconut kefir
  • 300 ml coconut water
  • 1 tbsp hemp protein powder (optional)


  • Add all the prepared ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Additional coconut water can be added until desired consistency is achieved, or alternatively add less for a lovely thick smoothie bowl.
  • If using fresh berries rather than frozen, you may want to add a few blocks of ice at the end of the process and blend again for a few seconds.


Coconut kefir products such as Rhythm are becoming more available in health food stores, however if you don’t have any to hand you can omit entirely and use more coconut water, or try replacing with coconut milk or a couple of tablespoons of coconut yoghurt.
Berries, and in particular organic berries, can be very expensive. However it’s sometimes possible to pick them up at a good price during the summer months when they are in season in the UK. They freeze very well so stock up on a few extra punnets for the freezer when the price is right.
