This is the perfect post-run smoothie! Such a delicious balance of earthy and fruity. And the color is phenomenal!

Love the flavour 🌸👌

This is so delicious! I love beetroot in smoothies and I had some cooked leftovers in the freezer that I wanted to use up so I looked for a smoothie recipe on your website and of course I can always rely on pickuplimes! I couldn’t find oranges in my supermarket so I added one peach and a little bit of orange juice to make it more liquidy, I also misread the recipe and bought yoghurt instead of milk but it was still so good, thank you ao much 🥰

So thrilled the smoothie was enjoyed, Vanessa, thank you for sharing your experience with it!

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I made it just as it was (for a single serving) and thought it might taste overwhelmingly like beets but it didn’t! I do tend to like mine a little more citrus-y so I may put a whole orange instead of half for a single serving next time. Otherwise pretty good!

Wow, that’s delicious!

Super delicious & perfectly filling! I’m looking forward to making this my morning go-to smoothie!

So glad it's being enjoyed, Liz!

Have to agree with Louise about the really nice earthy flavour 😊 I’ve enjoyed making several of your smoothie recipes in the past in order to use up oranges and wanted to try something new with this one. Really enjoyed it as a smoothie bowl for breakfast 😋

It means so much that the smoothie is being enjoyed, Constanze, thank you!

Lovely earthy and mellow flavour, which isn’t too strong thanks to the banana and orange. Like Marie, I substituted hemp seeds for cashew butter and it’s really good! I think it’s a better way to absorb fat than having pieces of seeds floating around😝
Smooth texture and no problems to mix in my hand blender

Thanks for sharing the insight, Louise, it's so appreciated!

Since first trying out this recipe, which was probably about a week after you posted the respective youtube-video, I have made this smoothie at least 30 times! I really really like it!!! Usually, I have replaced the orange with about 1 dl of orange juice, because that made it easier for my mixer to make it smooth. The combination of beetroot and spinach with the natural sweeteners of banana and orange (juice) is really good!

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2021, 4:59 p.m.

Aw we're smiling from ear to ear! Thank you for the kind words and review, Gesa 🤗

Marie - Sept. 16, 2021, 8:24 a.m.

I love this smoothie! The ingredients are so accessible and it tastes amazing! I didn’t have hemp seeds so I added a tbsp of cashewbutter to add a little fat, that worked really well. I also only had frozen spinach and cooked red beet. Next time I‘ll peel my orange better because I only have a hand-held blender and it turned out a bit chunky with the orange flesh.

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2021, 4:57 p.m.

Oh, so lovely to hear, Marie! So happy the smoothie is being enjoyed. Adding a bit more liquid may also help it be less chunky next time if desired 😊
