Berry beetroot nice cream may sound like a bit of a strange combination but trust us, it works.
Beetroot powder is a great addition to smoothies and desserts because of its impressive nutrient profile. Aside from being low in calories and fat, beetroots are known for their role in detoxification processes in the liver and the pigment provides important anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds… And it tastes great too! This berry beetroot nicecream is proof.
We love the creamy texture of nicecream so to keep it as thick as possible we recommend blending on a low speed setting.
3 large frozen bananas, chopped
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 tbsp beetroot powder
- Combine all ingredients in a high-powder blender.
- Blend slowly on a low setting to create the thick and creamy ‘ice-cream’-like texture.
- Serve as is or with your choice of fresh berries, banana cacao nibs and/or nut butter.
What is beetroot powder?
Beetroot powder is a readily available superfood that is full of antioxidants, as well as other nutrients such as iron and betaine (amazing for liver detoxification). We love adding it to smoothie bowls, baked goods and even lattes! Pair it with pink pitaya for an even brighter bowl.
