Savoury beet protein smoothie

 

Having raw eggs may cause health problems. To eat healthier I tried this recipe.

I found only hard boiled eggs in my fridge and cooked beetroots,  milk etc. I decided to start the day with a salted,  spicy smoothie.

Ingredients

3 hard boiled eggs

1 small cooked beetroot 2-3 cm in diameter

150 ml skimmed milk

1 tsp mustard

1 tsp kimchi paste

1 tbsp tomato paste

Salt and ground black pepper

Method

Put everything together in your magic bullet smoothie maker. Blend until it makes a smooth fluid. Season and use.

Enjoy!

Mango protein smoothies no. 1

With its perfect combination of sweet and sour, mango complements the rich taste of creamy cheeses, balances the heat of smoky dishes, and intensifies the flavors of other tropical fruits. This versatile fruit pairs well with apple, berries, caramel, citrus, coconut, melon, vanilla, and cinnamon.

To prepare mango flavoured protein smoothies I will try different pairings.

Ingredients

4 eggs whites

Mango purée

Milk

Frozen mixed berries

Caramel or caramel sauce

Method

I’m using magic bullet smoothie maker.

It’s easy to use and easy to keep clean.
