Maggie's Tips

My preference is for freshly cooked beetroot. Vacuum packed is ok, too, but never use pickled beetroot in this recipe. You can also boil up a load of beetroot, freeze in individual zip-lock bags and use as required.
For a protein boost add nut butter, seeds, good quality protein powder, such as “Good Green Stuff ™”
For a hit of super greens add a scoop of “TerraNova™” ” Life drink
Boost your brain health by adding good quality fish oil or vegan alternative. Richard and I both use “Zinzino ™”
Interested in sourcing Zinzino oils or knowing are about the product contact [email protected]
Top up with “Udo’s Ultimate Oil Blend ™” Rich in Omega 3,6,9
Do your best to source organic and seasonal ingredients for smoothies
Think twice about ice! While ice can be refreshing in your smoothies it can also shock your digestion and slow it down. Notice how it affects you!
