My energy booster

My favourite energy drink needs to have beet in it.  Beet works magic in my life, seriously.   I become alive when there is beet, my brain functions well and I feel a lovely sense of well-being.

Today I blended another one of my beet drinks, making sure to note the ingredients used, so I can assess the finished product and try to improve.

My ingredients were:

  • 2 small to medium-sized beets
  • 2 small to medium-sized carrots
  • 1 small banana
  • 2/1/2 Cups Almond Milk
  • ½ t-spoon Almond essence
  • A pinch of grounded ginger
  • A pinch of grounded bay-leaf
  • Two t-spoons sugar (brown) or honey (my preference is usually honey)

Method:

Carrots and beets were washed, peeled and grated, the banana was sliced. They were all placed in the blender with all other ingredients, and blended; ice added.

Assessment of finished product:

First noticeable taste was the banana, carrots and milk; the beet was the after taste.  The essence was noticeable in a mild complementing way.  There was a slight taste of sugar (just right for me).  I was not satisfied however with the effect of the ginger and the bay-leaf”.   Next time, I would use nutmeg instead of bay leaf and I would increase the quantity.  Overall, the result was tasty and refreshing.

If you love your drinks loaded with sugar, then this drink is not for you.  I am usually always thinking “limited sugar”.

I have mixed beet with cucumbers and celery as well (no milk added), enjoyed that too.

Have you ever tried blending vegetables and observed how it made you feel?

For me, I am a strong believer in blended drinks that has beet; it works for me.

I urge you to drink healthier, for a healthier, more energetic you.
