Beet root nutriblast

I got a Nutribullet today in the hopes that I will finally be able to ingest something that’s healthy. My first NutriBlast involved beet root. Now I really hate beet root, just eating a piece has been known to reduce me to projectile vomit. Why am I eating it then? Because I need the iron and I really don’t want to take any more supplements on top of what I’m already taking.

The recipe; Yields 2 cups

  • 1 small beet root (2 inch dia)
  • 1/2 a medium banana
  • 1 cup almond milk

Toss ingredients in Nutribullet for about 30 seconds and enjoy.

Nutrition facts: 148 calories, 29 carbs, 3 fat, 3 protein, 225 sodium, 20 sugar.

I found that it was too filling to drink the entire thing and it had a bit of a chewy consistency so I’m thinking that I need to allow it to process for a bit longer next time but I didn’t actually mind the consistency. One cup was enough for me, the nutrition facts are for the entire concoction.

Much to my surprise not only was I not nauseous but it was pretty yummy. I wonder if the banana had anything to do with that?

      1. [ Smiles ] By boiling the beetroot, you are going to kill its nutrient value.
        Here is a suggestion: place the beetroot in the juicer and then add its juice to the rest of the other ingredients in the blender. Or, if you don’t have a juicer, use less beetroot!

      2. I actually need to ingest it this way, the Nutribullet predigests the food enabling me to absorb more nutrients than is usually bioavailable. I’m on a lot of medication that interferes with my digestive functions.

        It depends on how long you boil it for I believe, heat will kill some of the nutrients but something like steaming does relatively little damage to nutritional content.

        It turned out that just processing it longer was the best of both worlds.
