On-the-go

This smoothie bowl is made on repeat in our home. The ginger gives this smoothie a bit of spice, and the beetroot gives it an earthy flavour. If you're not a fan of either, just leave them out, which will give this smoothie more of a milder and sweeter taste.

Easy, healthy and delicious! My family aren’t the biggest smoothie people but they loved this so will definitely be making again… and again.. and again!

Woohoo! So happy to hear your family is enjoying the smoothie, Rachel 🤩

I literally make this smoothie every morning for breakfast, it is so delicious and versatile.
It is equally as good a smoothie or topped with granola, often leaving out the nut butter when adding granola to make it a smoothie bowl.
I have found that you can sub the orange for other fruits such as mango, pineapple or apple depending on what you have on hand and it turns out great.
Really great recipe <3

Ooo thanks a bunch for sharing, Cat, the substitutes sound delicious!

The PUL smoothies are the most creative, balanced and tasty smoothies ever and this one is no exception! The peanut butter and ginger combo is devine!

So happy to hear you've been enjoying PUL smoothies, Cris! Thank you 🤗

Absolutely love this unique smoothie bowl recipe, made it twice this week! I like making my own smoothie bowls at home, I would have never thought to use raw beets and was pleasantly surprised. :)

PUL Team - June 13, 2021, 1:02 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Leah, thank you for the review!


Zee - June 8, 2021, 8:31 p.m.

Is the beet in this recipe supposed to be raw? I see a comment that someone used a baked beet but that wasn't clear from the recipe so intrigued to know what was used above and does raw beet not taste hard and weird?

Separately, I have a completely tangential question (not related to a particular recipe) and possibly a suggestion that can enhance the site further - what's the best way to get in touch with Sadia re: those? Is there a direct email I can use?

PUL Team - June 9, 2021, 6:24 a.m.

Hello Zee, indeed the beetroot is raw in this recipe! It helps add some colour and a bit of an earthy flavour that isn't too overpowering. Feel free to use baked beet if you prefer though 🙂

We always love to hear feedback and suggestions as well, it's so appreciated! You can contact us at [email protected]

The only things I changed are adding one banana instead of two and using a baked beet. And it was superb! I love your recipes and cook with them regularly. Thank you for such a delicious recipe! I send a biiiig hug from Poland! <3

PUL Team - April 27, 2021, 5:37 a.m.

Ooo sounds delicious, Paulina, thanks for sharing! Sending a super big hug back to Poland 🤗

I am pretty new to smoothies and I didn't know how to make them taste good, I thought they werde watery and kind a bland, so I was really excited to try a new recipe! It was super delicious and all your tips were so helpful! It was so creamy and I liked the earthy flavour:)) I'm looking forward to try all your other smoothies recipes (and not only them :) !
I just love your work and especially your new website!
Lots of love from Austria!

PUL Team - April 19, 2021, 1:49 a.m.

We're so glad you enjoyed the smoothie, Sarah! Sending lots of love back to Austria 🥰
