I have a really delicious smoothie recipe to share with you today.

The recipe is a pineapple beetroot smoothie, that tastes sweet, and earthy and has a little heat coming from the ginger I added!

I am excited to share this beverage because it has so many benefits and it tastes really good.

What Is The Benefit Of Beetroot And Pineapple Smoothie?

If you are wondering what the benefits are of beetroot and pineapple smoothie I have good news for you!

This type of smoothie contains numerous health benefits, and it’s also totally dairy-free and suitable for vegans too.

Here’s a breakdown of the benefits of drinking this healthy beetroot smoothie:

  • Rich in Antioxidants: Both beetroot and pineapple are excellent sources of antioxidants, which help fight oxidative stress and inflammation.
  • High in Fiber: The chia seeds and beetroot in this smoothie contribute to high fiber content, aiding in digestion and promoting a feeling of fullness.
  • Boosts Immune System: The vitamin C from the pineapple can help strengthen the immune system.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: The use of ginger along with pineapple and beetroot in this smoothie provides anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Good for Heart Health: Omega-3 fatty acids from chia seeds are beneficial for heart health, including reducing the risk of heart disease. Along with beetroot which is rich in nitrates the benefits are enhanced further.
  • Rich in Essential Minerals: The drink contains important minerals like manganese and iron, which support metabolic activity and oxygen transport, respectively.
  • May Potentially Lower Blood Pressure: Beetroot has been shown to potentially help in lowering blood pressure due to its nitrate content.

Is Beetroot And Pineapple a Good Combination?

If you have never tried a beetroot and pineapple combination before I can safely say that it’s a wonderful combination!

Beetroot has a strong earthy flavor, and it’s low in sugar and as with smoothies, we like them sweet!

Pineapple cuts through the strong earthy flavor of the beetroot and sweetens the smoothie made with these 2 ingredients together.

They also complement each other well in terms of health benefits, since they are polar opposites, you get the best of both worlds!

How To Make a Beetroot Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

Pineapple Beetroot Smoothie

Beetroot, especially if you use raw beetroot can be difficult to blend. This is why I recommend that you have a strong blender.

If you do not have a powerful blender, you can either blend for longer or use steamed / cooked beetroot. 

These are the ingredients you are going to need to make this pineapple beetroot smoothie:

  • 1 peeled raw beetroot or steamed unflavored beetroot.
  • 1/2 cup/75g frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 tsp minced ginger root
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 200 ml cold water or coconut milk from a carton

Once you have measured your ingredients, add them all to your blender, starting with the beetroot and pineapple which are harder to blend.

Blitz until smooth and blend until smooth. Serve over ice for more freshness if you like and enjoy!

Recipe Variations And Tips

Based on the ingredients I used to make this beetroot smoothie, they might not be ingredients you prefer or have at home.

This is why I will leave some options for you below, that can still allow you to make this smoothie, but customize it to suit you!

  • If you like or have bananas ready to be used at home, you can make a beetroot pineapple banana smoothie version of this smoothie. Just add 1/2 banana to your blender along with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Instead of chia seeds, you can either use flaxseeds or oats instead.
  • For a lower-calorie version of this recipe if you want to make a weight loss-friendly beetroot smoothie, use water instead of coconut milk.
  • If you don’t like or have coconut milk, you can use any other milk you like. Just do note that the type of milk may slightly impact the taste.

How Often And When Should You Drink This Beetroot Pineapple Smoothie

When it comes to the benefits of this smoothie, you only really need to drink this smoothie once a day. Twice a day is not needed.

I like to switch my smoothies around, so I tend to drink different types of smoothies during the week.

however, if you like this smoothie, you can drink it once a day, 3-4 times a week!
