  • Preparation: 10 mins
  • Serves: 1

What you need:

  • 100ml orange juice
  • 1 cooked beetroot

What you do:

  1. Whizz all the ingredients in a liquidiser until smooth.
  2. Serve immediately poured over ice. Easy!

Handy cook's tip:

If you want to cook your own beetroot from raw for this recipe, don't peel or cut it, or the colour (and nutrients) will leach out. Gently scrub the beets to clean thoroughly, and twist off the green tops.

Then put the beetroot in a pan of water, bring to the boil and heat for 40 - 45 minutes. Beetroot is naturally quite high in sodium so you don't need to add salt.

Beetroot is enjoying something of a revival as people discover there’s more to this great British vegetable than they thought. You can now buy beetroot in so many different ways – raw, cooked, marinated, lightly pickled - there’s so much to beetroot than the jar of pickled beetroot many of us will remember from our childhood.
