Beetroot was the wonderful vegetable which improves our body’s haemoglobin content. A great veggie with antioxidant property.
For this January theme – Red Theme for Ssshhhhh secretly cooking , I was paired with Poornima Porchelvan of Poornima cookbook. She gave me Beetroot and almond as the secret ingredients.
I decided to make a smoothie bowl , with beet and Almond along with Red Banana , pomegranate and cardamom.
This smoothie bowl will be a perfect valentine treat for your loved one in a healthy guilt free way.
Red banana also known as Red dacca banana is a great source of fiber.It is rich in potassium and Vitamin C.
This smoothie bowl can be prepared and served within ten minutes if you have the ingredients in hand.
Beetroot chopped – 1 cup
Red Banana – 2 nos
Pomegranate Juice – ½ cup
Almond – 6 nos
Homemade proetein Powder – 2 tbs
Cardamom – 2
Clarified Butter / Olive oil – 1 spoon
Add the chopped beetroot in a sauce pan and add the clarified butter and roast for five minutes. This is to remove the raw smell of beetroot and to retain its colour.
Add the roasted beetroot , almond , protein powder , cardamom , chopped red banana and pomegranate juice in a blender and blend smoothly.
Pour into the serving bowl and top with the banana slices , sprinkle almond flakes and pomegranate seeds.
Beet Banana smoothie bowl is ready to be served.
