Healthy beetroot protein smoothie that is beautifully colored, velvety, smooth, and sweet! Made using healthy ingredients, this delicious protein smoothie also has no protein powder, and all the protein is from natural plant-based ingredients.
It’s thick, easy to make, and perfect for breakfast, as a snack, or for a pre and even post-workout drink.
The ingredients aren’t super unique, except the shelled hemp seeds. They are the perfect plant protein source, and they are also considered a superfood!
Hemp seeds contain over 30% fat. They are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).
25% of hemp seed’s total calories come from protein.
That is considerably more than similar foods like chia seeds and flaxseeds, whose calories are 16–18% protein.
This smoothie is loaded with healthy heart-healthy fats, fiber, plant protein, vitamins, and minerals. Almost everything your body needs in 1 drink.
If you don’t like beetroot, you won’t taste it very much in this smoothie, it gives color and nutrients more than anything, but if you really don’t want it, in your smoothie, simply don’t use it in this recipe.
