Tips

  1. Some vitamins are fat-soluble vitamins and much better absorbed together with some fat. So always make sure to add a bit of fat, e.g. one teaspoon of oil, to this smoothie.

Why this smoothie is great for you

  1. Beetroots are a great source of fibre, folate, potassium, iron, carotenoids and vitamin C. Consuming lots of foods high in carotenoids can help decrease the risk of breast cancer.
  2. Pomegranate are a good source of vitamin C, fibre, potassium and antioxidants.
  3. Carrots are rich in carotenoids, fibre, vitamin K1 and potassium.
  4. Oranges are a healthy source of fibre, vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and antioxidants. All citrus fruits are high in carotenoid antioxidants, which are responsible for their rich colour.
