This smoothie is perfectly sweet; not too little, not too much. It has a beautiful zing from the lemon and mandarin and a slight delicate spiciness from the ginger.

spinach and beetroot smoothieBeets are so good for you! They’re loaded with vitamins and minerals and help clean your liver and your blood. They are also a good source of energy because they’re high in sugars, the good kind of sugars that are gradually released into your system. This makes them perfect if you’re training or exercising intensely.

Add the benefits of spinach, apples, bananas and citrus fruits and you’ll bomb your body with a whole lot of goodness.
