The Powerhouse Nutrition of Beets and Yogurt


Let's quickly review why beets and yogurt make such an amazing nutritional combo for smoothies:




When you blend beetroots and yogurt together, you get a smoothie that's packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and gut-friendly probiotics. Talk about a nutrient-dense superfood beverage!



What You'll Need for Making Beetroot Smoothies


Before we get to the recipes, let's cover the essential tools and ingredients you'll need for smooth and creamy beetroot smoothie blending:


  • Blender A quality blender is crucial for pulverizing the fibrous beetroots and creating a silky smooth texture. Look for a model with at least 800 watts of power and sturdy stainless steel blades. Powerful blenders like Vitamix, Blendtec or Ninja make quick work of dense ingredients.

  • Knife and Cutting Board You'll need to give the beetroots a rough chop before blending. Having a sharp chef's knife and sturdy cutting board makes prep easier.

  • Measuring Cups and Spoons Precisely measuring ingredients helps you achieve consistent results.

  • Storage Containers (Optional) Glass jars or bottles let you store any leftover beetroot smoothies in the fridge for later.




Staple Ingredients for Beetroot Smoothies with Yogurt


These are some of the key ingredients you'll need for the recipes:


  • Beetroots (fresh or pre-cooked)

  • Plain Greek yogurt or other yogurt of choice

  • Fresh or frozen fruit like berries, bananas, pineapple, etc.

  • Liquids like milk, juice, or plant-based milks

  • Sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, dates (optional)

  • Nut butters, seeds, oats (for added nutrients and creaminess)



Tips for Using Beetroots in Smoothies


  1. Use pre-cooked beetroots for smoother blending. The fibrous raw texture doesn't break down as easily.

  2. Add beetroots gradually to prevent an overpowering earthy flavor. A little goes a long way!

  3. For vibrant color, use red or purple beetroot varieties like Red Ace or Crimson Globe (you can actually get white beetroot)

  4. Golden or yellow beetroots create pretty orange smoothies but have a milder flavor.

  5. Pair beetroots with naturally sweet fruits and yogurt to balance out the earthiness.

Now let's blend up those beetroot smoothies!
