Spinach and Beetroot smoothie


I have recently started having smoothies to fulfill my small hunger cravings and trust me you would thank me for this latter. 

Spinach is rich in vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin A, riboflavin, folate, niacin, vitamin E and vitamin K (this is what google had to say). Whereas, beetroot is rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium. All these nutrients make both of them as super-food for you as well as your babies (after becoming a mum I always see what all i can feed my baby along with me). If you are someone who doesn't like eating spinach and beetroot than do tryout this smoothie.

Ingredients :
  • Few spinach leaves (thoroughly washed) 
  • One medium sized beetroot


Procedure :
  • Cook both beetroot and spinach in a pressure cooker for few minutes until the beetroot is soft and finely cooked.
  • Once cooked Grind them in a mixture grinder/blender
  • Add water to bring it to a consistency of a smoothie or as per the requirement.
  • Adding salt is optional.

Note: 

If your kid doesn't like the pulpy consistency you can strain it and bring it to liquid consistency.
Kids will love the taste as the beetroot is sweet. This can be served during 11am or 4 pm snack time.
Try it for you and your little one.

  1. This recipe is good and quite healthy too.... however I would suggest not to pressure cook the spinach as it will loose all it's nutrients....rather you can just dip the spinach leaves in hot water or if required just give one boil...this will help preserve the nutrients and the spinach will also stay green in colour even after cooking.
