  Ingredients:

  • 1 Large, Uncooked Beetroot
  • 1 Pomegranate
  • 1 Avocado
  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 Kiwi
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Passion Fruit
  • A Thumb Of Ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons Raw Cacao Nibs
  • 2 Tablespoons Hemp Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon MCT Oil
  • ¼ Pint Water

Method:

1.  Wash your ingredients.

2. Cut open, remove the seed and scoop out the avocado.

3. Cut your pomegranate into quarters and deseed it.

4. Peel the kiwi, bananas, lemon and ginger. ( I tend not to peel the beetroot as you can eat it with the skin, which actually holds a lot of the nutrients!)

5. Chop the fruit and veg into chunks.

6. Chuck half of them into your blender.

7. Add the raw cacao, hemp and flax seeds.

8. Scoop in the passion fruit.

9. Throw in the rest of your fruit and veg into the blender (if struggling for space grab a potato masher and squish them down).

10. Attach your blender to the rest of it (this step is important if the bottom of your blender leaks when you add liquid).

10.  Add the MCT oil and water.

11. Mix until the consistency looks smooth.

12. When the shake looks nice and creamy, detach from the blender and pour out as desired.

Perfect as a light, healthy breakfast or a detoxifying drink!
