Beetroot and Berry Antioxidant Smoothie

This smoothie with beets, berries, banana and enriched with cold-pressed flaxseed oil is a perfect choice for those looking to combine taste and health benefits. Beets offer a rich source of essential nutrients, including fiber, vitamins and minerals, and have antioxidant properties. Small fruits, including blueberries, are known for their high concentration of antioxidants, helping to fight oxidative stress. Banana, naturally sweet, provides lasting energy as well as fiber and potassium. Yogurt helps provide proteins and probiotics that are beneficial for digestive health. Adding chia seeds is a great source of omega-3 and fiber. Finally, cold-pressed flaxseed oil completes this blend with its omega-3 fatty acids, essential for the heart and brain.

Q: How many servings of fruits and vegetables are in this smoothie?
A: This smoothie contains approximately 2 to 3 servings of fruits and vegetables. It depends on the size of the fruit and beet used. A typical serving is around 80 grams.

Q: Does this smoothie keep well?
A: This smoothie is best when consumed immediately after preparation to benefit from all its nutrients and freshness. It can be stored in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days, but it is recommended to stir or blend it again before consuming, as the ingredients may separate.

Q: Can other types of fruit be added to this smoothie?
A: Absolutely! This smoothie is very versatile. You can add other fruits according to your preferences or what you have on hand. Apples, oranges, or mangoes can be good additions to vary the flavors.

Q: Does adding flaxseed oil change the texture or taste of the smoothie?
A: Flaxseed oil added in small quantities does not significantly affect the texture of the smoothie. As for the taste, it can bring a slight nutty note, but it is generally masked by the dominant flavors of fruit and beetroot. The main purpose of flaxseed oil is to increase the omega-3 content of the smoothie.

Q: Can this smoothie be used as a complete meal or is it more of a snack?
A: This smoothie is nutrient-dense enough to be considered an energy-boosting snack or addition to a meal. However, for a complete meal, it would be best to accompany it with a more substantial source of protein and additional whole grains or vegetables to ensure complete dietary balance.
