🗒 Ingredients 

For this easy smoothie recipe, you only need 5 ingredients (plus water and optional boosters) and a blender.

  • Beetroot is rich in essential nutrients giving it a nutritional boost and a lovely hue.
  • Pineapple (fresh or frozen) adds natural sweetness and tanginess to counterbalance the earthy tones of the beetroot. It also adds a refreshing touch.
  • Lemon juice brings a citrusy freshness to the smoothie while acting as a natural preservative. 
  • Medjool dates are a wholesome sweetener that provides a caramel-like sweetness without the need for refined sugars. Dates also offer a dose of fiber and essential minerals.
  • Ginger adds a subtle spicy note to the smoothie. Adjust to taste, as too much ginger can easily overpower the smoothie and add too much spice.
  • Water is the base of this smoothie, it helps with blending and prevents your smoothie from getting too thick. Feel free to use coconut water if you have it on hand. This will add electrolytes and a hint of tropical flavor to your smoothie.
  • Boosters are a way to add ”superfoods” to your smoothie. For this recipe, I like to use amla powder, spermidine, ground flaxseeds, or chia seeds. These boosters elevate the nutritional content of the smoothie even more but are optional ingredients.

🧑‍🔬 What is Spermidine?

Spermidine is a compound found in cells that helps with cell growth and cell death. It’s involved in processes like autophagy, which can impact health and aging. Some studies suggest it might have anti-aging and health benefits, but more research is needed.

Spermidine is also naturally present in various foods such as soybeans, mushrooms, legumes, and whole grains.

🥣 Substitutions and Variations

  • Pineapple substitution: If pineapple is not available, you can substitute it with other fruits like mango or orange.
  • Sweetener: Instead of dates, you can use maple syrup, coconut sugar, or agave nectar to sweeten the smoothie to your taste preference.
  • Booster variations: Feel free to customize the smoothie by adding other boosters such as spirulina, maca powder, hemp seeds, or protein powder for an extra nutritional boost.

📔 Tips

  • To speed up your morning routine, prepare extra batches of this smoothie and freeze them in ice cube trays to create smoothie cubes. When ready to enjoy, simply blend the cubes with a splash of liquid. You can read all about it in this recipe.
  • Blend long enough to make a smooth and creamy texture. Give it time so that the fibers have time to break down and achieve a smooth texture.
  • Add ice cubes when serving the smoothie if it has warmed up too much in the blender.

❔ How to Store this Smoothie

For optimal freshness and flavor, enjoy your smoothie immediately after blending.
