serves 2 pint glass. If you are making this smoothie just for you then make up this amount for the day and put the remainder in a sealed flask which will keep the smoothie fresh for 24 hours, I do this all the time, especially if I’m going out for the day and need feeding!
4 medium size beetroot
1 large romaine lettuce
2 ripe bananas
handful of fresh mint
Juice the apples and beetroot then blend with the lettuce, bananas and mint.
