This smoothie is perfect for anyone who isn't a fan of banana, but who wants a creamy and filling smoothie. The beets add a slightly earthy flavour, but you'd never be able to guess that that smoothie is packed with zucchini.

1 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
1 small raw beet, peeled and quartered
½ cup (50 g) frozen chopped zucchini

*Nutrition tip: try to use a plant-based milk that is fortified with calcium (offers approximately 120 mg calcium per 100 mL serving).
Variations: for an extra boost of healthy fat, fibre, omega-3 and some protein, add a tablespoon or two of hemp seeds!
