Red Smoothie

Adapted from Pick Up Limes
1. 1 cup (250 ml) skimmed fresh milk
2. 1 tsp flax seeds ground
3. 2 cups (60 g) baby spinach
4. 1/2 cup (15 g) parsley
5. 1 tsp fresh ginger finely chopped
6. 1 banana
7. 1 orange quartered
8. 1 apple cored and quartered
9. 1 beetroot, peeled and quartered

1. A sprinkling of rolled oats (optional)

Add all ingredients in the order listed above into a blender and blend until smooth.

Additional Information:
I mentioned about the green, red and orange smoothie as a start to our morning for the kids (and the adults). Our kids like this smoothie better than the green smoothie I made yesterday. Instead of some granola, I sprinkled some rolled oats on top for crunch and to make it more filling. It's actually quite nice, but be careful not to overdo it. I overdone it for the second glass, and got tired of the rolled oats.

I am amazed again, how I don't notice the parsley. The sweetness from the apple and orange completely overpowered the parsley and the spinach :-)

The nutrients from ground flaxseeds are easier to absorbed by the body. Thus, I added into the blend, rather than sprinkle it on top.


Update 25 Feb 2019: Red smoothie made with our new Magimix blender:
