Beet Banana Smoothie Bowl - Guilt Free

  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.

Requirements :

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
Toppings :
Almond flakes
Pomegranate seeds
Banana Slices

Method :

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.
