Delicious veggie smoothies to try this spring

Delicious veggie smoothies to try this spring

Homemade smoothies are the perfect way to boost your vitamin and nutrient intake during the warmer months – but rely too heavily on juicing or blending your fruit, and you could end up missing out on essential fibre throughout the day.

Vegetable-based smoothies, on the other hand, are packed with a high number of nutrients, are low in calories and help control cravings.

Here’s our round up of the best thirst-quenching veggie smoothies that are not only easy to make, but look and taste great too.

1. Ruby red beetroot smoothie

Detox and hydrate with this bright beetroot smoothie, which is rich in antioxidants, and vitamin A and C. You’ll need ½ beetroot, ½ a cucumber and 5 carrots. Chop all ingredients and blend until smooth. (Recipe via Easy Detox).

2. Green immunity smoothie

Self-confessed smoothie addict, Chris from Tales of a Kitchen, uses a combination of spices, aromatics and green veggies to create the ultimate immune-boosting drink. Get the recipe here.

3. Super cucumber and ginger smoothie
