This was devised after I had leftover beetroot puree from the Red Velvet pancakes from Valentine’s Day that I’d frozen. It’s my wedding anniversary at the end of August, so I figured this would be a suitable start to the day! It’s a really yummy twist on the classic chocolate shake, with extra nutrients from the beetroot and banana.
Red Velvet Anniversary Shake
1 frozen banana
2 scoops (50g) chocolate protein powder
10 tbsp. beetroot puree (cooked beetroot mashed or put through a blender)
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
300ml milk of your choice (dairy, almond, coconut)
2 handfuls ice
Place all the ingredients in a blender or smoothie maker and blend until the ice is crushed and everything is thoroughly mixed.
