It’s really hard to say what do I prefer, fruits or vegetables. I love them both.Fruits for how sweet and vibrant they are and they tend to always elevate my mood instantly. And veggies just make you feel so amazing, so energised and nourished as well. So almost all the time I try to combine them into my meals.
I just adore smoothies for breakfast, they are fast, easy to make and super nutritious. Fruit smoothies are great, but in my opinion adding veggies to them constantly elevates them to super food status, even without adding fancy powders, so if you don’t have acai don’t worry, you can totally skip it, it will still tastes amazing and provide you with tons of antioxidants and vitamins.
But… For me, being superpowders fan for a while now, I always have them on hands, and if you are like me definitely do add it to this smoothie it makes the flavour richer and gives amazing undertones. As well in case if you are worried about adding a beet and changing the taste of your fruit smoothie, it ‘s really not the case here, the beet flavour is no prominent at all and combines so well with mango and berries, so I really doubt you can even say that is there, if you don’t know ingredients. Just something for you to look into, if you don’t have very powerful blender you may want to consider blending beet and cashews with with the little bit of water first till smooth before adding the rest. The texture has to be very smooth for you truly enjoy this experience.
